Chris Knight Lyrics – 90 Acres

House And 90 Acres

I’ve got a house and 90 acres some cattle in the barn
Two kids with no mama, she left in a saleman’s arms
A sign by the mailbox says there’s an auction in the yard
Born and raised has been damn easy but lately living’s hard

The children miss their mama but there ain’t nothing I can do
If she was all I had to worry about well I’d guess I’d miss her too
But I’ve watched my tools and tractor leave in someone else’s hands
I grit my teeth, I’m let ’em go but I won’t give up my land

This house and 90 acres, the only place I’ve left to stand
My roots are anchored solid, I ain’t machinery I’m a man
I’ll be here in the morning come pouring rain or sun
This house and 90 acres what’s said is good as done

There’s jobs up in the city I could probably drive a truck
Or I could move 300 miles from home but that would be giving up
Well you know that I ain’t leaving if it’s just my pride I save
I might be on the front porch or I might be in a hillside grave

This house and 90 acres, the only place I’ve left to stand
My roots are anchored solid, I ain’t machinery I’m a man
I’ll be here in the morning come pouring rain or sun
This house and 90 acres what’s said is good as done
This house and 90 acres what’s said is good as done
