Pain in the Fields

Pain in the Fields

Her family lived in a farm house
On the outskirts of town
They came to church every Sunday
But they didn’t hang around
I met her in Sunday school
They tried to teach us wrong from right
I said I’d trade a hundred years in heaven
To be with her for just one night

Chorus:
Now there’s pain in the fields
And lightning in the sky
Thunder in her daddy’s voice
And rain in my baby’s eyes

Well I guess we were foolish
But we were just a couple of kids
We didn’t consider the consequences
It was just something that we did
I said I’d do right by her
But her daddy just wouldn’t hear
He said leave and take that tramp with you
She is no longer welcome here

Chorus:
Now there’s pain in the fields
And lightning in the sky
Thunder in her daddy’s voice
And rain in my baby’s eyes

So we both quit high school
She took a job at the 5 and dime
We rented a place at the trailer park
And bought some furniture on time
I’ve spent the last ten years at the mill
Running a heat set machine
Seven days a week, fifty weeks a year
From 7:00 am until 3:00

Bridge:
But I remember driving down that old dirt road
With my lights turned out so her father wouldn’t know
And how her kisses tasted so sweet
But remembering is a slippery slope
It takes you to places you never should go
Like that cornfield where we used to meet

Chorus:
Cause there’s pain in the fields
And lightning in the sky
Thunder in her daddy’s voice
And rain in my baby’s eyes

Pain in the fields
Lightning in the sky
Thunder all around us
And rain in my baby’s eyes
