Will It Grow (Dylan Jakob)

I made a promise to not let go Our tug of war has only made me want you more Steeped in hard luck and doomed to roam My love is braver than you know My forefathers they worked this land And I was schooled in the tyranny of nature's plans Dressed in thunder a cloud came round In the shape of a lion a hand came down Damn this valley Damn this cold Take so long to let me know It's plant and reap and plow and sow But tell me will it grow Dig my ditches in the golden sun I'd be robbing these trains if I could catch me one Sunday Monday now Tuesday's gone Got me stone cold sober n a drought so long Boarded mansions and ghost filled yards There's a boy in a water tower counting cars Steel traps open and empty stalls There's a well-worn saddle but the horse is gone Damn this valley Damn this cold Take so long to let me know It's plant and reap and plow and sow But tell me will it grow Jet black starlit midnight rolls I am down in the garden where I let go Here on the surface the earth looks round But it's a godless city of cold flat ground Damn this valley Damn this cold Take so long to let me know It's plant and reap and plow and sow But tell me will it grow
