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

Houses in the Fields  --  John Gorka

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

Intro:
F G F
Dm G  F


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


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


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


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


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


(Chorus)


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


(Chorus)


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