(Chorus)
Take 'em away, take 'em away Lord
Take away these chains from me
My heart is broken cause my spirits
Not free
Lord take away these chains from me

Some birds feathers are too bright to
Be caged
I know I'm not that colorful but a bird
Just the same
Open up your gate now, let me put
Down my load
So I can feel at ease and go back to my
Home

(Chorus)

Sun beating down, my legs can't seem
To stand
There's a boss man at a turnrow with a
Rifle in his hand
I've got nine children, nothin in the pan
My wife she died hungrey while I was
Plowin' Land

(Chorus)

Can't see when I go to work, can't see
When I get off
How do you expect a man not to get lost
Every year I just keep getting deeper in
Debt
If there's a happy day, Lord, I haven't
Seen one yet

(Chorus)

Land that I love is the land that I'm
Workin
But it's hard to love it all the time when
Your back is a-hurting
Getting too old now to push this here
Plow
Please let me lay down so I can look at
The clouds

(Chorus)

Land that I know is where tworivers
Collide
The Brazos The Navaso and the big blue
Sky
Flood plains, freight trains, watermelon
Vines
Of any place on God's green earth, This
Is where I choose to die

(Chorus)
