C                   G
There's powder dust on the section line road
       C                            F
like flour spilled on the kitchen floor
it ain't rained since early spring
over a hundred thirty days or more
    C                     G
and a little pond at the foot of the hill
         C           F
it was dryer than a July wind
loaded up the cows and i took em to town
brought in nothin' took em home again

            F               G
and it was dry in nineteen thirty 
            C  -  -  -  F
and it was dry in thirty two
don't need a new deal handout
 G               C
a little rain will do

Well my grandpa sat beneath the shade of a post oh,
pulled out his watch and he looked at the sky
wondered out loud will it ever rain
i cant remember when it was this dry
and he looked at his wife and his dusty children
pondered the fate of a farmin' man
make a crop and it ain't worth nothin'
the next year the weather got em again


Told me once that hoover tried to starve em to death just because they were poor
held on to one another
one another's all they had before
and he finally gave in and he swallowed his pride
made a mark for credit at the general store
cost a penny a pound for cotton
the next year it cost two cents more


He told me once you better stick to your business
don't be a drinking and actin a fool
spent the best years of my life
staring at the backside of a mule
and he told me once you better get you some schoolin'
take a look at me and my calloused hands
don't forget where you were raised
keep a tie to the land

Great chords. Check your lyrics, they're a little off. First and fifth line of last verse need to be swapped. No big deal man, anyone looking up this song oughta know the words already!!
