Grandpa's Farm

Album: The Sound of a Million Dreams (2011)
  • It's gonna be a long, hot summer
    The heat's gonna come for sure
    Making you love me might take longer
    But down here everything is slow
    Sheets are blowin' on the clothesline
    Honeysuckle makes it smell so sweet
    The way they feel when ya lay down on 'em
    You can't get from no machine

    I know you come down every season
    Waste time on your grandpa's farm
    I ain't tryin' to talk you out of leavin'
    A little sun won't do no harm

    Go ahead and put your summer dress on
    The sky's bright and the water's fine
    And if you don't feel like swimmin'
    We can find a bank and wet a line
    'Cause I know up there in the city
    Ain't no space to run 'round in
    Down here we got dirt streets
    Your bare feet can't help but settle down in

    I know you come down every season
    Waste time on your grandpa's farm
    I ain't tryin' to talk you out of leavin'
    A little sun won't do no harm

    Grandpa's farm

    I'll show you around if you come outside
    Ain't no need in hidin' yourself anyhow
    I'll show you around if you come outside
    Ain't no need in hidin' yourself anyhow
    I'll show you around if you come outside
    Ain't no need in hidin' yourself anyhow

    I know you come down every season
    Waste time on your grandpa's farm
    I ain't tryin' to talk you out of leavin'
    A little sun won't do no harm

    Yeah, I can show you around
    Yeah, I can show you around
    If you come outside
    Ain't no need in hidin' yourself Writer/s: ADAM HOOD, BRENT COBB, JASON SAENZ
