Old Adam, the crow
Is building a home in your field
Where bitterweeds grow
All around the corn

Will you be the father
That drives the thief from your home?
Or let him run wild
As your first born?

"Well I carried the plow
And carved out a home in this world
And I carried the bow
To protect the corn

Now the summer is over
My hands are tired and slow
And I can't stop loving
My first born."

Old Adam, the crow
Is flying away from your field
And you'll never know
What makes him run

"I dreamed of my father
Who drove me out of his home
And dreamt of forgiving
My wild son."

Totally Nebraska
nice.
Based on the comments, this lovely song gets played once every few months. So {#Tongue-out} to those who say Bill plays songs too often.
Without the beavertail coat?

Yeah, it's putting me to me sleep. :sleep:
A bit corny but I love it. Short too, that has to be under 2 minutes.

First to rate and comment! Yippee. Her voice, following Neko Case, is familiar and strong enough to carry the song to a 7.

Catch this band live if you can. I've seen them three times, and tried for five. Now that I'm living abroad, I'll have to leave it up to you First Worlders.
Hem: Is there anything those kids can't do?? Love em
Is this what women are supposed to listen to when they Hem. Sorry, I had to say it.
Me thunk it was Rita Coolidge at first!
