Exit 81 – Thirty-Two Acres lyrics

[Verse]
I cut the timber for the cabin floor
I built a plank fence out of locust board
And I worked the corn fields in the early morn
And I raised my family on a poor man’s farm

[Chorus]
Thirty two acres of bottom land
Bought and paid for with my own hand
T’ worth a fortune to a working man
Thirty two acres of bottom land

[Verse]
My son was born on an old feathered bed
Well he had my blue eyes and mama’s hair of red
Now he lies a sleeping neath a willow tree
Down by the creek bank lies a part of me

[Chorus]
Thirty two acres of bottom land
Bought and paid for with my own hand
T’ worth a fortune to a working man
Thirty two acres of bottom land

[Verse]
I planted a peach tree, it’s know longer mine
I watered a grapevine; now the leaves are dying
The county’s taken everything I own
‘Cause I’m on the right of way for a four lane road

[Chorus]
Thirty two acres of bottom land
Bought and paid for with my own hand
T’ worth a fortune to a working man
Thirty two acres of bottom land
