  • Where I come from, those big green pastures
    Keep on rollin', they don't disappear
    In the middle, there's a man on a big, green tractor
    Hopin' it's gonna be a real good year (Gonna be a real good year)

    Yeah, this back-home drive's got me reflectin'
    Feels like God's askin' me some questions

    If your words were seeds that were goin' in the ground
    And your love was rain farmers prayed about
    If your life was sunlight we all needed
    What kinda world would it be?

    If you reap what you sow
    What kind of garden would you grow?
    If you reap what you sow
    What kind of garden would you grow? (Ooh)

    Would it be warm like Eden or more like a desert?
    Would the fruit be sweet or withered and dry?
    Would the weeds take over 'cause it's been neglected?
    Do your roots run deep, are your branches high?

    And if your words were seeds that were goin' in the ground
    And your love was rain farmers prayed about
    If your life was sunlight we all needed
    What kinda world would it be?

    If you reap what you sow
    What kind of garden would you grow?
    If you reap what you sow
    What kind of garden would you grow?

    Would you plant patience?
    Would you keep kindness?
    Would there be peace
    Ripe on the vine?

    If your words were seeds goin' in the ground
    And your love was rain farmers prayed about
    If your life was sunlight we all needed
    What kinda world would it be?

    If you reap what you sow
    What kind of garden would you grow?
    Oh, if you reap what you sow
    What kind of garden would you grow? Mmm

    (Ooh) What kind of garden would you grow? (Garden would you grow)
    (Ooh) Oh, what kind of garden would you grow?
