Written In Dust

Song Length 3:24 Genre Country - Contemporary
Lead Vocal Male Vocal Language English
Era 2000 and later



These fields been plowed
far back as the family goes
A lot of hands tilled the soil
Fingers worked to the bone

A lot of history here
Battles fought and battles lost
Yeah, some bad got covered up
but some good comes with the cost

May not always be proud of the past
but it's the grave lessons that last

How deep are the scars
How far in the mud
do we bury our secrets
that flow through our blood
Pain written in dust
like a seed breaks the dirt
How the sun and rain
pull us up from the earth
This is how we grow
Love written in dust
This is how we grow
Love written in dust

May dig up some skeletons
way down in the muck
but I'm gonna live my own my damn life
whatever the ground gives up

Yeah, I got my story
A horse trail from the past
My ancestors keep sayin'
"Son, you can change that path"

Not every page is worth turning
But every chapter is there for the learning


No matter the history in the cloth
we're all from the same cut
Gotta learn how to weed the crop
what to sow and what to pull up


Ending: Love Written in Dust
