      About "Five Generations Of Rock County Wilsons"

      Lyrics for John Anderson - "Five Generations Of Rock County Wilsons"

      It seems like overnight the town of Red River
      Was suddenly full of strange men
      Who wore suits in the summer and stood on the dirt roads
      Trying to hold their maps in the wind

      And some of them smiled
      And some of them didn't
      And none of them came back again

      After five generations of Rock Country Wilsons
      The last fifty acres, apparently didn't
      Mean a damn thing to them

      I stood on the hill overlooking Red River
      Where my momma and her momma lay
      And listened to the growling of the big diesel cat
      As they tore up the wood's where I played

      And I said, momma forgive me
      That I'm almost glad
      That you're not here today

      After five generations of Rock Country Wilsons
      See the last fifty acres in the hands of somebody
      That would actually blow it away

      You know the bus station in the town of Red River
      Used to be the general store
      But now they got a new one and you know that's okay
      If a bus is what you're looking for

      So early one morning
      When the sun cut red
      I got up with the dawn

      After five generations of Rock County Wilsons
      The last one just climbed on a big old gray dog
      And was gone
