Lyrics

Dear Mama, well here's a letter from your son Well I think my city days are done gone And it ain't been three weeks since I came And Mama, do remember what you said Say your prayers before you go to bed child And remember city girls ain't the same On like a John Deere Tractor In a half acre field Tryin' to plow a furrow Where the soil is mighty still How I wish I was home mom Where the blue grass is growin' And the sweet country girls don't complain And mama, so much perfume I thought I drank And the lord didn't seem to be nowhere around Hey, I felt just like a flower from the vine On like a John Deere Tractor In a half acre field Tryin' to plow a furrow Where the soil is mighty still How I'd like to be home mom Where the blue grass is growin' And the light shimmers and it shines On like a John Deere Tractor In a half acre field Tryin' to plow a furrow Where the soil is mighty still
