Will we get cold and hungry
When we're needin' bread and meat

In the house on the hill

Still the fields are bare
With twenty acres to share?
I'll beg for more land
Yes I will, I'll ask the man on the hill
I ain't got no Sunday shoes
Papa reckon the boss has got

In the house on the hill

Maybe we'll get by
If we all should die
We'll leave it to the man
Yes we'll leave it to the man in the sky
