lyrics

FIELD OF STONE

When I was ten, the highwaymen broke ground and broke the heart of my hometown
They tore down oaks to plant eight rows of asphalt, laying that blacktop down
We forgot what silence was in the rolling thunder of the nighttime trucks
And that rumble in my chest felt just like love

Ooh, you can’t raise nothing in a field of stone
Ooh you learn real quick that you can’t go home
What matters most
You feel it so close

When I was ten, my daddy left, my mama said all men are no good strays
But my child’s mind was sure if I’d done better, he’d have loved me, he’d have stayed
I wished him back with all my might
On every muted star in those highway lights
And my heart grew hard and tight

Ooh, you can’t raise nothing in a field of stone
Ooh you learn real quick that you’re on your own
What matters most
You feel it so close

I have my mother’s hands and heartache
And my father’s need to run
My history is my headstone in this grave they dug

Ooh, you can’t raise nothing in a field of stone
Ooo you learn real quick that what’s gone is gone
What matters most
You feel it so close
So close
That field of stone
