lyrics

I've been runnin' 'round naked in these fields since the day I was born
Through the wheat, the barley, the beans, the cotton and corn
I'm the prick in your heel that you feel when your stockings are worn
I'm the cold north wind, blowin' again
Rusted rattling tin, I'm the sharecropper's sin

I was raised in the cane and the pain of the oil patch
Sweet honeysuckle, sour mash, single batch
Behind the barn, jimson weed, sulphur strike of the match
I'm the cold north wind, blowin' again
Rusted rattling tin, I'm the sharecropper's sin

Dancing with the scarecrows 'neath the September skies
Collecting souls of sparrows for the puddin' and the pies
Suffering slings and arrows and the green bottle flies
I'm the cold north wind, time and time and again
Rusted rattling tin, I'm the sharecropper's sin

I'm the power in the puff of the Red Ryder BB gun
Keeping the copperheads, cottontails and coyotes on the run
I'm a hundred and ten in the mid-day July sun
I'm the cold north wind, blowin' again
Rusted rattling tin, I'm the sharecropper's sin

Dancing with the scarecrows 'neath the October skies...

I'm the hootenanny, croup penny hanging around your neck
The hug and a kiss and a squeeze, and the bushel and peck
I'm the get drunk, stay out all night, train wreck
I'm the cold north wind, blowin' again
Rusted rattling tin, I'm the sharecropper's sin

Dancing with the scarecrows 'neath the November skies...
