Kate Campbell

Huey was a captain with Andy Jackson
He settled in Kentucky on a soldier's pay
It was two hundred acres and for almost as many years
The land has borne my family name

You can count the generations
Like circles in a tree
On tombstones you can barely read

Will you walk with me across the blue green pastures?
I wanna see horses run one more time
You can lay me down beside the ones gone before me
Bury me in bluegrass when I die

Uncle Henry sells computers, he never learned to farm
So he sold his part to daddy when grandpa died
And Mom and Dad are old now, they say they're gonna move
Where the weather is always warm and dry

The buyers signed the note today
They're gonna build a mall
With plans to break ground before the fall

Will you walk with me through the fields of Burley?
I wanna see leaves of gold one more time
You can lay me down beside the ones gone before me
Bury me in bluegrass when I die

They nailed the sign up yesterday
And I don't understand
To me it's more than just a piece of land

Will you walk with me through the peaceful valley?
I wanna see the harvest moon one more time
You can lay me down beside the ones gone before me
Bury me in Bluegrass when I die
