released September 15, 2014
Catch the dust blowin' across the field

There are no mice 'cause there is no grain
And Grandpa's gone down to the auction block
To see what can be saved


Maybe time is past for those who stand
when nothing more is made with the hand
If the sun has set on the working man
Then may he be returned to the land
May he be returned to the land
