A Man On A Tractor  
Rodney Atkins
CD - "If Your Going Thru Hell"

Capo 3

D
I woke up the same way this morning
                           A
Like a stranger in my own life
Bm                       A
Tired and confused with too much to do
         G                       D
Nothing left for my kids and my wife
       G                          D
Oh I clung to that first cup of coffee
                                       G
Praying god, won't you show me what's real
                   D
Then out in the distance I saw through the window
   G          D            A        D
A man on a tractor with a dog in a field

D
The dog walked just like it was smiling
         G                            D
The man drove like the world was all right
     Bm                       A
The tractor hummed on like a part of a song
                  G                D
That you sing to your children at night
     G                              D
His work was laid out there before him
             G                          D
In rows of green, his whole life was revealed
    G                          D
Oh what I wouldn't give if I could just live
       G           D             A        D
Like a man on a tractor with a dog in a field

Chorus:
D       A                        G          D
Let me do what I'm doing, let me be where I am
        Bm                       G             D
Let me find peace of mind on my own piece of land
          A                                G
When I'm lost, help me to let go and find someway to feel
        D        G        A                   D
Like a man on a tractor      with a dog in a field


Instrumental: D-Bm-G-D-Bm-G-A

 D
There I was watching and wondering

My wife came down and sat beside me
                Bm         A
She said. it's not about living another man's life
             D                      A   D
It's about seeing your own differently
         G                        D
Oh this home that I love and my children
                                 
What more could one man hope to yield
G                          D
She touched my face and said, there's more than one way
         G                       A        D
To be a man on a tractor with a dog in a field
