We are the People

The world is changing, and we are too
Throw away the old, bring on the new
It’s a real man’s job, to work this land
You’ve got sweat on your brow and dirt on your hands

We are the people, and we’re satisfied tonight
You can take anything, you can change everything
But you can’t take me you can’t change anyone, like me

Fields and fields for miles, as far as you can see
We used to feed the world our hard golden wheat
Tonight the forecast calls for a good hard rain
Tomorrow’s sun will shine and bring a brand new day


There’s a ghost out on the tractor, my granddad use to ride
I feel him sad tonight from the other side
Oh we’re going to be all right, I have faith in us tonight
