Lyrics

For Sale
c. Glen King

1st. Verse:
Daddy kicked at the ground
And the dust clouds flew
He said, son it's looking like
Our farming days are through
You know, we can't grow cotton
In a desert like this
And, the weaatherman's predicting
Another drought is gonna hit, this year
It's becoming real clear
We gotta quit this place:

Chorus:
So. he painted For Sale
On the side of the barn
In big whitewash letters
You could see from a thousand yards
But, nobody made an offer
And another year went by
And that For Sale sign faded
Like the days of daddy's life:

2nd. Verse:
Somebody from the bank
Said they'd help us make it through
Give us more time on the mortgage
Though, it was way overdue
Daddy tried to sell the tractor
But, it wasn't worth a dime
With great sadness in his voice he said
I guess it's time to put this farm to rest
Son, we did our best
We gotta sell this place:

Chorus:
So. he painted For Sale
On the side of the barn
In big whitewash letters
You could see from a thousand yards
But, nobody made an offer
And another year went by
And that For Sale sign faded
Like the days of daddy's life:

Bridge:
Now, that farm is just a memory
Standing here by daddy's grave
And. while I read his eulogy
The rain is coming down in waves,
And I still recall,

Chorus:
When. he painted For Sale
On the side of the barn
In big whitewash letters
You could see from a thousand yards
But, nobody made an offer
And another year went by
And that For Sale sign faded
Like the days of daddy's life:
