Lyrics

SONGS IN THE KEY OF TRACTOR
(c) 2002 JC Tubbs

Verse 1
I contemplate the world as I cultivate the earth
The sod break free as I cultivate my mind
I wanna write a song , I'm feeling the rhythm
And I have a head full of rhymes

Chorus 1:
I like to write SONGS IN THE KEY TRACTOR
To me, it's just a natural thing to do ahoo hoo
I like to write SONGS IN THE KEY OF TRACTOR
My tractor is always in tune
Mr. Butch Hancock says, and I must agree that 440 diesel hums in the key of G
That's why I like to write SONGS IN THE KEY OF TRACTOR
That old John Deere is music to my ears

Verse 2:
The wind blows the dust all around the hay field
It smells like rain but I can't quit
I've got just enough time to make it to the last row
And just enough to write my next hit
I like to write SONGS IN THE KEY TRACTOR
That old John Deere is music to my ears
Oh yeah, that old John Deer is music

Bridge:
I am to the tractor like the hobo to the train
And like the old man was to the sea
It is my musical vessel, and as strange as that may sound,
It takes me anywhere I want to be

Chorus 2:
I like to write SONGS IN THE KEY TRACTOR
To me, it's just a natural thing to do ahoo hoo
I like to write SONGS IN THE KEY OF TRACTOR
(unlike my guitar) My tractor's in tune
My mind is free to ramble, I see just what I see
I might just write a song about tumbleweeds
That's why I like to write SONGS IN TEH KEY OF TRACTOR
That old John Deere is music to my ears
Oh yeah, that old John Deere is music
