Sodbuster

You came out west in 1883
just to stake your claim to this ground
You got a little shack and your family
and that’s the only thing for miles around

You watch the sky as the clouds roll in
and you put your hands back to that plow
one more time down and back again
with that mud and sweat drippin off your brow
(slap that mule)

Sodbuster
you gotta get that dirt on your hands
Sodbuster
Someday you’ll make your livin’
off this land

(inst)

you gotta work that ground
till the sun goes down
and you hope and pray
you’re gonna get ahead someday

(breakdown)

Sodbuster
you gotta get that dirt on your hands
Sodbuster
Someday you’ll make your livin’
off this land
