Farmer’s Daughter – Crystal Bowersox

Another original song from Crystal Bowersox.  This is the second installment for “those who have ears to hear”, and I believe that this song is the most worthy of the two.  Love her voice, reminds me of Eva Cassidy.  I cannot wait until she releases a CD when her Idol run is over.

Farmer’s Daughter

Halfway to crazy, not far from sane
%$#@’*^’ sick and tired of all your games
All I ever wanted was you to take care of me

Honor thy mother and father too
But I know there ain’t no way in hell that God mentioned you
All I ever wanted was you to care for me

Now I’m stuck in this hotel room, your grandson and me
Tomorrow we’re gonna find out our destiny
All I ever wanted was you to be there for me
All I ever needed was you to be here for me

This time is the last time you’re gonna see us around
This was your last chance to prove you wouldn’t let me down
So go on, get going and get away from here
All alone is how you’re gonna spend the rest of your years
No farmer’s daughter anymore, mommy dear.

Remember back in high school, my brothers and me
Well he put his head through the door to find clarity
You’d come home with bourbon breath, Jack in the air
And when you broke my bones I told the school I fell down the stairs
All I ever wanted was for you to be there for me
All I ever needed was for you to be here for me

This time is the last time you’re gonna see us around
This was your last chance to prove you wouldn’t let me down
So go one home, get going and get away from here
All alone is how you’re gonna spend the rest of your years

No farmer’s daughter anymore
I ain’t no farmer’s daughter anymore
No farmer’s daughter anymore, mommy dear
