    A song for the political/economic fix we find ourselves in:

    Lyrics:
    TROUBLED TIMES
    J.Reams (BMI), ©2004 Mountain Redbird Music

    Dawn till dusk out with the plow
    Always pulled us through somehow
    Dad would sit at the table and say grace:
    "Lord, let us hold on to the old homeplace"

    Chorus:
    Hand-hewn beams held up the barn
    Mom and Dad's dreams held on to the farm
    'Til it slipped like dust through their hard-working hands
    Sometimes the devil has other plans

    Winter's chill went to the bone
    Mom had made our house a home
    Caressed us all with heart and hand
    But troubled times had filled the land

    Chorus:
    Hand-hewn beams held up the barn
    Mom and Dad's dreams held on to the farm
    'Til it slipped like dust through their hard-working hands
    Sometimes the devil has other plans

    Early spring brought hope and despair
    Flocks of blackbirds filled the air
    A muddy road led to our home
    The man from the bank foreclosed on the loan

    Chorus:
    Hand-hewn beams held up the barn
    Mom and Dad's dreams held on to the farm
    'Til it slipped like dust through their hard-working hands
    Sometimes the banker has other plans
