First time he saw the ground get busted
His daddy worked hard from sunup to sundown

And the house he lived in grew up room by room
So he slipped away one night 'neath the harvest moon
His neck was red as Alabama clay
He's got a factory job and runs a big machine

His job is just a routine he can't stand
Fresh dirt between his toes and on his hands
Then one day a picture came inside a letter
And the words she wrote would change his life forever

Now he's goin' home this time to stay
And the tractor rolls through the fields of green
His neck is red as Alabama clay
Where the roots run deep on the family tree
