Winter passed without a glaze, took our only boy at last
You cried God's arms were a blind an' bleeding ocean
Blooming spring brought all I need
Warmth and rain for me to seed my earth, good earth for our boy to lie in
In the summer I worked the land
She walked like she still held his hand
And I swear to God I saw her once of trace a'smiling.
In the autumn, my gold wheat swaying,
I cut her down from where she was swinging
She said: Goddamn you, Jim, up there I could hear him laughing

    Lyric CorrectionWinter passed without a glance
    Took our only boy last
    She cried and Gods arms were a blind and breathing ocean

    Blooming spring brought all I need
    Warmth and rain for me to seed
    My earth, good earth for our boy to lie in

    In the summer I work my land
    She walks like she still held his hand
    And I swear to god I caught her once or twice a'smiling

    In the autumn, gold wheat swang
    I cut her down from where she was swinging
    She said
    'Goddamn you, Jim. Up there I could hear him laughing'
