Lyrics

Paddocks in the Sky

Chorus
He used to laugh, no paddocks,
Look, no paddocks way up high
He'd point to the Blue Heavens
Where no clouds were drifting by
White clouds will be the paddocks
That I'm farming in God's sky
He'd laugh again no farms up there
No reason yet to die
Verse 1
Then came the rain to break the drought
That kept his old farm dry
And in its wake the sun peeped through
Soft white clouds drifting by
Those clouds look like the paddocks
That I'll farm came with a sigh
That signed him out, and winged him to
His paddocks in the sky
Chorus
He used to laugh, no paddocks,
Look, no paddocks way up high
He'd point to the Blue Heavens
Where no clouds were drifting by
White clouds will be the paddocks
That I'm farming in God's sky
He'd laugh again: no farms up there
No reason yet to die
Verse 2
He?ll always be our farming dad
Toiled manly to provide,
So fitting that a broken drought
Would lead him to decide
Just when he took the hallowed road
To paddocks in the sky
Those clouds look like the paddocks that
I?ll farm was his last sigh.
Chorus
He used to laugh, no paddocks,
Look, no paddocks way up high
He'd point to the Blue Heavens
Where no clouds were drifting by
White clouds will be the paddocks
That I'm farming in God's sky
He'd laugh again: no farms up there
No reason yet to die
Reprise
Those clouds look like the paddocks that
I'll farm came with a sigh
Those clouds look like the paddocks that
I'll farm his last soft sigh

That signed him out, and winged him to
His paddocks in the sky

That signed him out,
And winged him to
His paddocks in the sky
