The old man loaded up everything that he owned 
On a wagon and headed out west 
The old woman fearlessly faced the unknown 
'Cause she figured he knew what was best 
And they settled down hard on a government grant 
With six mouths to feed and forty acres to plant 

And the rain came down 
Like an angel come down from above 
And the rain came down 
It'll wash you away and there ain't never enough 

Fall turned to winter another year gone 
Over and over again 
Some took their lives from their land and moved on 
And some stayed on to plow it back in 
And the good Lord he giveth and he taketh away 
And the restless shall go and the faithful shall stay 

Now my grandaddy died in the room he was born in 
Twenty-three summers ago 
But I could have sworn he was beside me this morning 
When the sheriff showed up at my door 
So don't you come around here with your auctioneer man 
'Cause you can have the machines but you ain't taking my land
