(Song) Towns Of Ghosts Lyrics

daddy i don’t want to be like you
and i don’t want your land
all my friends have grown away
and i am a modern man
i am a modern man

boy you’ll break your old man’s heart
when they’ve boarded up this town
your grandad’s grave is spinning now
you know he’s buried in this ground
his soul is in this ground

chorus:from the dakotas to the pan handle
kansas ,new mexico
the rural heartland of america
is becoming towns of ghosts
quiet towns of ghosts

daddy i’ve watched you break your back
trying to keep this land sound
you can’t compete against the modern farm
when they own the seeds in the ground
the seeds in the ground

boy polish the callus from your hands
and go off to the city then
the family farms will dissappear
along with the honest men
along with the honest men
