Out on these Texas plains
You can see for a million miles
There are a thousand exits between the interstate line,
Bout the last time that I saw you
Call me Pandora, call me a fool
I'm thinking to you that it would do you some good
Drop these scales and take a look

[Chorus]
This forty acres,
There's redemption to be found
Just along down the way
There is a place where no plow
Laid has turned the ground,
And you will turn it over hay,
