The Mission
Grapes of Wrath from the album Carved in Sand (1990)


Verse 1:
G                               C
The sweat upon his brow and the dirt worked into his hands
    G                   C 
The dignity of labour upon a man's own land
    G                   D
The soil of his fathers passed on down through blood to hand
  Am                      C                D          G   
A man's right of birth to reap the harvest   from his land

Verse 2:
                            C
The breaking of his back to keep his dream alive
   G                             C
To work the change of season his instinct to survive
    G                           D
The planting of his seed and to see his harvest grow
        Am                C                D         G
Gives a pride to a man to reap the harvest   that he sows

Chorus:
    Em
       The land of the free, home of the brave
    C                          G        D              C
The heartland of pioneers, the heritage   of flesh and blood
    Em 
And along come the winds that blow through the land
       C                                 G               D                  
With a price to pay for the working man, money talks and changes hands
    C                               D                    G
And money reaps the harvest money demands, the grapes of wrath

Verse 3:
                                         C
They can take away his freedom, they can beat him into the dust
         G                                         C
They can burn his home, run him from his land, and leave him out to gather rust
         G                                 D
But they can't take away his faith and his honesty and pride and the
Am                                              C                D               G
knowledge that he holds inside  One day they'll reap the harvest,  the grapes of wrath

Verse 4:
        There's hope in a man that nothing can destroy
        A man will endure anything for the dream that he holds dear
        And there's pride in the earth he toils for
        His honesty for the air he breathes
        The truth of the harvest they will reap

Ending:
              G       D                G          
The grapes of wrath,     the grapes of wrath,    
D                 C       B    A    G
    the grapes of wrath
