      About "Rain On The Scarecrow"

      Lyrics for John Mellencamp - "Rain On The Scarecrow"

      Scarecrow on a wooden cross blackbird in the barn
      Four hundred empty acres that used to be my farm
      I grew up like my daddy did my grandpa cleared this land
      When I was five I walked the fence while grandpa held my hand

      [Chorus]
      Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow
      This land fed a nation this land made me proud
      And son I'm just sorry theres no legacy for you now
      Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow
      Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow

      The crops we grew last summer weren't enough to pay the loans
      Couldn't buy the seed to plant this spring and the farmers bank foreclosed
      Called my old friend schepman up to auction off the land
      He said john its just my job and I hope you understand
      Hey calling it your job ol hoss sure dont make it right
      But if you want me to Ill say a prayer for your soul tonight
      And grandmas on the front porch swing with a
      Bible in her hand Sometimes I hear her singing take me to the promised land
      When you take away a mans dignity he cant work his fields and cows

      There'll be blood on the scarecrow blood on the plow
      Blood on the scarecrow blood on the plow

      Well there's ninety-seven crosses planted in the courthouse yard
      Ninety-seven families who lost ninety-seven farms
      I think about my grandpa and my neighbors and my name and some nights
      I feel like dying like that scarecrow in the rain

      [Chorus]

      Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow
      This land fed a nation this land made me so proud
      And son I'm just sorry they're just memories for you now
      Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow
      Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow
