Capo 2

Intro: D  A  G  A  G  Asus4 G  D

              A                  Bm      A
First time he saw the ground get busted
       G                 D   Asus4 A
He was ten and it was 1952
    D                      A           Bm    A
His daddy worked hard from sunup to sundown
        G                                     D      A
And the goin' got tough behind them  ol' grey mules


    D            A         Bm     A
The farm grew to be a moneymaker
        G                                 D    A
And the house he lived in grew up room by room
    D                   A                  Bm     A
The boy worked hard but soon got tired of farmin'
      E7               A                        D    A-D
So he slipped away one night 'neath the harvest moon

             G              D    A-D
His neck was red as Alabama Clay
               G    D/F#         A    Asus A
But the cities callll pulled him away
                   G                  D
He's got a factory job and runs a big machine
                  A                     D     
He don't miss the farm or the fields of green

Intro: D  A  G  A  G  Asus4 G  D


Now the cities just a prison without fences
His job is just a routine he can't stand
And at night he dreams of wide-open spaces
Fresh dirt between his toes and on his hands


Then one day a picture came inside a letter
Of a young girl with a baby in her arms
And the words she wrote would change his life forever
So he went to raises his family on the farm
His neck is red as Alabama Clay
Now he's goin' home this time to stay
Where the roots run deep on the family tree
And the tractor rolls through the fields of green
Repeat second Chorus

His neck is red as Alabama Clay
