They won't have me but I
I love this place
The rural life is broken and
The farmlands gone to chaff
My hands are idle and my
Mind needs rest
And the toll of the decent
And the sleep of the best

I sit in diners with all
The old men and they
They talk of work
Cause it's all they ever did
They gave their hearts to Jesus and got
Serious and they
Gave up their drinking and they
Worked for this
Nothing
Nothing
And it's all this love to offer
And all this love to waste
And all this love to offer
And all this love to waste

Lame dog on the highway where
The old road used to be now
You know what divides us is just a
Difference someone made
Now some got tired of trying and
Some were just to scared to stay but we
We gave ourselves to nothing and we
Let 'em have their day
Now who's gonna do the planting
And who's gonna pray for rain
And who's gonna keep the farmland from the
Sub-division man
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing
And it's all this love to offer
And all this love to waste
