about

A song inspired by seeing all the abandoned family farms along I70 east of Denver and in the background these huge corporate farms.

lyrics

You can drive all day and drive all night
you won't see a small farm that's got any life
only these monstrosities
they don't care about the birds or the bees

Well I thought this farm would set me free
get away from the city and the greed
then they sued me for the seeds I saved
another nail in the coffin of the dream I made

Where's the dream I made?

I raised six kids on this farm
and I worked the fields with them in my arms
now they've all left for the city lights
another sun goes down on a farmers life

Where's the dream I made?

Willy tries to save the farms
he got tangled up in the tax mans arms
thy'll knock you down they'll break your back
just to get their brand in your grocery sack

You can drive all day and drive all night
you won't see a small farm that's got any life
only these monstrosities
they don't care about the birds or the bees

Where's the dream I made?
