Subject: CRD: Houses In The Fields (John Gorka)

Houses in the Fields  --  John Gorka

(from the 1991 album, "Jack's Crows)

Intro:
G D C
Em D  C


Verse 1:
G                                             D                          C
They're growing houses in the fields between the towns
Em                                    D                       C    G
And the Starlight Drive-in movie's closing down
G                                  D              C
The road is gone to the way it was before
             Em                    D          C
And the spaces won't be spaces anymore


Verse 2:
G                                D                   C
Two more farms were broken by the drought
Em                                    D                    C    G
First the Wagners now the Fullers pulling out
G                       D                     C
Developers paid better than the corn
      Em                    D                                C
But this was not the place where they were born


Chorus:
G C                           D
There's houses in the fields, no prayers for steady rain this year
C                   D                                        C
Houses in the fields, there's houses in the fields
G Am                          D                    G        C
The last few farms are growing out of here


Verse 3:
G                          D                       C
At first he wouldn't sell and then he would
Em                               D                          C               G
Now there'll be children playing where the silos stood
G                                    D                   C
The word came from the marrow of his bones
               Em                    D                    C
It was the last sure way to pay off all the loans


Verse 4:
G                                 D                              C
The new streets will be named for kings and queens
         Em                   D                    C                    G
And a ransom will be paid for every castle's dream
G                         D                    C
The model sign is crested with a lion
             Em                     D                      C
And the farmers they will have enough to die on


(Chorus)


Verse 5:
G                                     D                C
Oh I guess no one should be afraid of change
                 Em                 D                      C
                 G
But tell me why is there a fence for every open range?
G                  D                  C
It's a sign I'm getting on in years
         Em                  D                          C
When nothing new is welcome to these eyes and ears


(Chorus)


Final Verse:
G                                             D                          C
They're growing houses in the fields between the towns
            Em                      D            C             G
And the Starlight Drive-in movie is all closed down
G                                  D              C
The road is gone to the way it was before
             Em                    D          C
And the spaces won't be spaces anymore
G Am                            D              G
No the spaces won't be spaces anymore

For me, I can sing this with a capo on the 3rd fret. Wish I could hit those low notes, but I can't!
