The Farm (Howe Gelb)

somebody I know taught me without even teaching the way it was then, not like it is now it even rained more often I remember the farm now Momma’s bright dress and the look on your face When she left How did we ever survive with so much missing? Never came on back, it just stayed missing Like I’m growing radar receiving messages From out of the plains of Kansas Someone, somewhere, some place, out there In my arms now, holding my baby It’s as good as I’ve felt lately Lily I love you, don’t know how I ever got by without you never going to leave here you’re not going to change that no matter how many men you send to lay me flat Somebody I know taught me without teaching I remember the farm now
