Torn Screen Door. ( D. Francey)

Late summer day and my love and I went walking
Over hills and fields we walked, laughing and talking

Came across an old farmhouse standing broken and bare
It used to be someone’s home now no one lives there.

There’s a red barn standing held together with nails and dust
And a tired old Massey Harris all wires and rust

Weeds overgrown in a garden sown with care
It used to be someone’s home now no one lives there

And through the crack in the window pane I hear the sound of the falling rain
Another farm being left run down another family moved into town

Had a life that they tried to save but the banks took it all away
Hung a sign on a torn screen door nobody lives here no more

They worked their fingers to the bone nothing left They can call their own
Packed it in under leaden skies with just the wheat waving them goodbye

Had a life that they tried to save but the banks took it all away
Hung a sign on a torn screen door nobody lives here no more

Had a life that they tried to save but the banks took it all away
Hung a sign on a torn screen door nobody lives here no more
