The many musings of an American Celt

Man on a Tractor

Posted by Reid on May 21, 2007

You ever feel restless, like you are never can get ahead that everyone else has better things that you do?. Sometimes a song can remind us that all is where it should be. Sometimes we need to stop and realize that where we are is an amazing gift, and we just need to change our lens a bit. When we focus to others, we will never understand joy.



Rodney Adkins is one of my favorite musicians right now… loving what his songs say… here are the lyrics to A Man On A Tractor if you want to hear his songs check out his My Space page



A Man On A Tractor

(Kent Agee / Michael Lunn)



I WOKE UP THE SAME WAY THIS MORNING

LIKE A STRANGER IN MY OWN LIFE

TIRED AND CONFUSED WITH TOO MUCH TO DO

NOTHING LEFT FOR MY KIDS AND MY WIFE

OH I CLUNG TO THAT FIRST CUP OF COFFEE

PRAYING GOD, WON’T YOU SHOW ME WHAT’S REAL

THEN OUT IN THE DISTANCE I SAW THROUGH THE WINDOW

A MAN ON A TRACTOR WITH A DOG IN A FIELD



THE DOG WALKED JUST LIKE IT WAS SMILING

THE MAN DROVE LIKE THE WORLD WAS ALL RIGHT

THE TRACTOR HUMMED ON LIKE A PART OF A SONG

THAT YOU SING TO YOUR CHILDREN AT NIGHT

HIS WORK WAS LAID OUT THERE BEFORE HIM

IN ROWS OF GREEN, HIS WHOLE LIFE WAS REVEALED

OH WHAT I WOULDN’T GIVE IF I COULD JUST LIVE

LIKE A MAN ON A TRACTOR WITH A DOG IN A FIELD



CHORUS:



LET ME DO WHAT I’M DOING

LET ME BE WHERE I AM

LET ME FIND PEACE OF MIND

ON MY OWN PIECE OF LAND

WHEN I’M LOST, HELP ME TO LET GO

AND FIND SOMEWAY TO FEEL

LIKE A MAN ON A TRACTOR WITH A DOG IN A FIELD



THERE I WAS WATCHING AND WONDERING

MY WIFE CAME DOWN AND SAT BESIDE ME

SHE SAID. “IT’S NOT ABOUT LIVING ANOTHER MAN’S LIFE

IT’S ABOUT SEEING YOUR OWN DIFFERENTLY

OH THIS HOME THAT I LOVE AND MY CHILDREN

WHAT MORE COULD ONE MAN HOPE TO YIELD

THEN SHE TOUCHED MY FACE

AND SAID, “THERE’S MORE THAN ONE WAY

TO BE A MAN ON A TRACTOR WITH A DOG IN A FIELD



(REPEAT CHORUS)
