Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
Bm C♯mThat's it! Here's the song. Apparently, this was inspired by Don's grandfather and his experiences farming. Think of it as a soft-rock counterpoint to "Foreclosure of a Dream" :-) GI used to work for Harvester,C GI used to use my hands, CI used to build the tractors and the combines, that Dplowed and harvested this great land... Now I Emsee my handiwork Con the block EmEverywhere I Bmturn, EmAnd I see the clouds cross the Cweathered faces, And I Bmwatched the harvest Dburn... That's essentially it, as all the verses can be played with the same basic progression
G C D Em C Em Bm Em C Bm DAt the end (after "I don't see next year's crop"), return to the second progression: And I Emsit here in my Cback porch in the twilight, And I Emhear the crickets Bmhum... Sit anEmd watch the Clightning in the distance, but the Bmshowers never Dcome... I Emsit here and Clisten to the wind blow, I Emsit here and Bmrub my hands, I Emsit here and Clisten to the clock strike, And Bmwonder when I'll see my com-Cpanion agaCin.. That's about it. Economically and politically a bit dated, I guess, but still packs a punch musically.
