A Stronger Prayer
Lyrics by K. Pierce
Genre: Pure Country 
 
webassets/StongerPrayer.jpg
 
 
 
This old farm weighs heavy
after twenty years comin' down.
 
The fields need tendin'
this heart needs mendin'
those green pastures long ran out.
 
Bank man said we'd better go
before it's time to close
 
 
but I say hang on, I say keep on...
'cause these troubled fields are all I know.
 
 
(Hook)
'Cause right here
it's a softer day
a warmer rain
the gentle sway
that keeps me 'round this place
 
It's all right here
I wanna stay
but all I've got to give
 
is a stronger prayer
 
.............and another day.
 
 
So many miles in these worn out boots
the horses are lookin' pretty tired too
our yields' all gone
barely enough ...........to pay for food.
 
 
But I was born right here
in these old green fields
raised by hard workin' hands
 
................and faith as strong as any steel.
 
 
 So I say hang on, I say keep on...
these troubled fields are all I know.
 
 
(Hook)
'Cause right here
it's a softer day
a warmer rain
the gentle sway
that keeps me 'round this place
 
My life is here
I wanna stay
but all I've got to give
 
is a stronger prayer
 
.............and another day. 
 
 
Bank man came today 
in a shiny fancy car
took the papers out
and handed me my heart. 
 
I said "Yes sir. It'll be real soon
just let my family have some time
to say goodbye.......
 
to the softer days
the warm rain
the gentle sway
that keeps us 'round this place
 
I've given sweat and tears
every ounce of blood
and all of fifty years

these times are hard
barely gettin' by
it takes more and more
............just to survive. 
 
 
So I'll say goodbye 
and I may be gone 
 
 
but my heart remains.....in these troubled fields that I called home."
