Intro

Em A C Bm D

Em John Svenson was a farmer He grew the A Minnesota wheat He C rode there with his daughter High Bm upon the thresher's seat D They broke down on the hillside The radiator spitting steam Went back to get the tool box So they could fix the old machine With a Em turn of the wrench, and a A twist of the screw We can C fix the tractor, we can Bm make it like new D But that day they got a letter That said the power lines would come Right across their farmland Right across the setting sun So they gathered all the family And talked late into the night We cannot let them do this We've got to put up one hell of a fight With a turn of the wrench, and a twist of the screw We'll apply a little pressure, and we'll see what that will do So they phoned one hundred farmers And drove to the Twin Cities Met there with the Governor And they sued the utility But after writing all the letters And paying all the legal costs To the power of the city Once again the farmers lost And in the C still of the D evening the Em wind is all you hear I watch the C waves on the D wheat fields a Em lone I walk the C furrows of D earth I plant Em year after year C This is our D land this is our Em home So they met there at the tavern But there wasn't much to say The power lines may come, but they will not stay With a turn of the wrench, and a twist of the screw What was once put together, we can easily undo With bandannas on their faces Careful not to make sound They loosened all the bolts That held the towers to the ground And several weeks later, with nobody around The Minnesota wind blew tower after tower after tower down With a turn of the wrench, and a twist of the screw What was once put together, we can easily undo And in the still of the evening the wind is all you hear I watch the waves on the wheat fields alone I walk the furrows of earth I plant year after year This is our land this is our home
