Waylon Jennings Where Corn Dont Grow Lyrics

Last updated:

Verse 1:
D G D
As we sat on the front porch of that old grey house where i was born and raised
Bm G D
Stared out at the dusty fields where daddy always worked hard eveyday
Bm G D
I think it kind of hurt him when i said "Daddy there's a lot that i don't know
Bm G D
But don't you ever dream about a life where corn don't grow"


Verse 2:
D G D
He just sat there silent staring in his favorite coffee cup
Bm G D
I saw a storm of mixed emotions in his eyes when he looked up
Bm G D
He said "Son i know at your age it feels like this ol' world is turning slow
Bm G D
And you think you'll find the answer to it all,where corn don't grow"


Chorus:
D Bm G
Hard times are real,there's dusty fields
D
No matter where you go
Bm G
You may change your mind,'cause the weeds are high
D
Where corn don't grow


Verse 3:
D G D
I remember feeling guilty when daddy turned and walked back in the house
Bm G D
I was only seventeen back then but it seems like i knew more than i do now
Bm G D
I can't say he didn't tell me this city life's a hard row to hoe
Bm G D
It's funny how a dream can turn around,where corn don't grow


Chorus.

D Bm G
You may change your mind,'cause the weeds are high
D
Where corn don't grow
