      Lyrics for Harry Belafonte - "Pastures Of Plenty"

      It's a mighty hard row that my poor hands have hoed
      My poor feet have traveled a hot dusty road
      Out of your dust bowl and westward we rolled
      Blue deserts so hot and your mountains so cold
      I wandered all over this green growing land
      Where ever your crops are I lend you my hands
      At the edge of your cities, you'll see me and then
      I come with the dust and I'm gone with the wind
      California, arizona, I worked on your crops
      North up to oregon to gather your hops
      I got beets from your ground
      I cut grapes from your vines
      To sat on our table's that light that sparkling wine

      Green pastures of plenty from dry desert ground
      From the grand coulee dam where the water runs down
      Every state of this union us migrants have been
      Oh we come with the dust and we're gone, gone,gone with
      The wind
      It's always we rambled that river and I
      All along your green valley's I'd work till I die
      I traveled this road until death lets me be
      Cause pastures of plenty must always be free
      I's a mighty hard row that my poor hands have hoed
      My poor feet have traveled a hot dusty road
      Edge of your cities you see me and then
      I come with the dust and I'm gone, gone, gone with the
      Wind
