Lady In The Fields

Brought up in a small town, with a school and a country store
A little church on down the road, she didn't need much more
She'll be going away someday, she'll be going the way of the Lord
She'l lbe going away, she'll be going the way of the Lord

Chopping straw and broom corn was the means of their lives
Petty things don't mean too much, when you're trying to survive
She'll be taking the right road home, she'll be taking the way of the Lord
She'll be taking the way, she'll be taken away by the Lord

There's a lady in the fields boy, you'd better watch your mouth
Keep your mind on your row and your hands on the plow
You can tell by the way she walks, she shows her pedigree
There's a lady in the fields boy...she knows here destiny

Those corn rows were a mile long with no water 'til the end
Side by side with black folks, they were just the same as kin
There was no room for hatred, no thinking she was better than the rest
She was living each day, she was living each day at her best

There's a lady in the fields boy, you'd better watch your mouth
Keep your mind on your row and your hands on the plow
You can tell by the way she walks, she shows her pedigree
There's a lady in the fields boy...she knows here destiny

In the end run she was faithful, she gave away her life
Living by the good book, never swayed by ebbing tides
Of this life as we know it, she was never afraid of the world
She was never afraid, she was living each day by the word

There's a lady in the fields boy, you'd better watch your mouth
Keep your mind on your row and your hands on the plow
You can tell by the way she walks, she shows her pedigree
There's a lady in the fields boy...she knows here destiny
