[Verse 1]
          G                                               
There's a little white note 
G
on the gate by the road 
        C  C/G  C  C/G  G
that a man put up yesterday
G                                     
And when we saw it,
G
we all ran out 
           A            D/F#
just to see what it had to say.
    G                                                   
And when we read it, 
G
our eyes filled with tears, 
         C  C/G     C  C/G      G
and they fell to the cold, hard clay
G                                                                       
Something about a mortgage, 
G
something about foreclosure, 
G               D          G
something about failing to pay.

[Chorus]
G
Oh, and on the post by the 
G
general store, 
     C  C/G   C  C/G   G
they put up a little sign
G
An auction sale 
G
day after tomorrow 
        A                D/F#  D  D/F#
at the end of the Lincoln Line
G
Thirty years of farming,
G 
thirty years of heartache,
      C  C/G   C  C/G   G
thirty years of day to day
G
Oh, my daddy stopped talking 
G
the day the farm was auctioned,
G                 D         G
there was nothing left to say.

[Verse 2]
G
Oh, my mama's tears fell 
G
freely down 
        C    C/G       C        C/G      G
as she walked amongst the flowers in the yard
G
And every number 
G
the auctioneer called 
            A                   D/F#
was like a blow to her precious heart
G
And every number 
G
the auctioneer called 
       C    C/G        C    C/G    G
meant another thing was sold that day
G
'Til everything was auctioned, 
G
and we stood there watching 
G                     D         G
as they loaded it and drove it away.

[Chorus]
G
Oh, and on the post by the 
G
general store, 
     C  C/G   C  C/G   G
they put up a little sign
G
An auction sale 
G
day after tomorrow 
        A                 D/F#
at the end of the Lincoln Line
G
Thirty years of farming,
G 
thirty years of heartache,
      C  C/G   C  C/G   G
thirty years of day to day
G
Oh, my daddy stopped talking 
G
the day the farm was auctioned,
G                 D         G
there was nothing left to say.

[Verse 3]
G
At the day's first dawning, 
G
we awoke this morning, 
          C  C/G   C  C/G   G
there was nothing for us to do,
G
Nothing in the granary, 
G
no hay in the mow, 
        A                 D/F#
no cattle, no tractor, no tools.
G
So we loaded up the car, 
G
took the clothes that we wore 
      C   C/G    C   C/G       G
and a few things we managed to save.
G
Mama read from the Book, 
G
we took one last look, 
G          D       G
and then we drove away.

[Chorus]
G
Oh, and on the post by the 
G
general store, 
     C  C/G   C  C/G   G
they put up a little sign
G
An auction sale 
G

        A                 D/F#
at the end of the Lincoln Line
G
Thirty years of farming,
G 
thirty years of heartache,
      C  C/G   C  C/G   G
thirty years of day to day
G
Oh, my daddy stopped talking 
G
the day the farm was auctioned,
G                 D         G
there was nothing left to say.

[Outro]
G
Oh, my daddy stopped talking
G
the day the farm was auctioned,
G                 D         G
there was nothing left to say.
