New Faces in the Field

by Illrd Tyme Out




The highway sign said the georgia line
Was twenty miles away 
So I thought I'd take a detour
And see the old home place
I could have found my way
With my eyes closed and in the dark
This ol' dirt road ain't on no map
I know the way by heart

[Chorus]
And the house still looks the same
Though the name on that ol' mailbox has been changed
And a tractor turns the earth 
That my daddy and a mule had plowed up first
As the memories return and my eyes begin to burn
This ol' place has new faces in the fields

The rockin' chairs on the front porch
Move from a sudden wind
It's almost like my mom and dad 
Were sittin' there again
I hear my brother callin' from
His favorite climbin' tree
But I'm just hearin' echos
Of how it used to be 

[Chorus]
                                      
As the memories return and my eyes begin to burn
This ol' place has new faces in the fields
