lyrics

Well, the rye's getting dry
From the sun way up high
I go, I go against the grain

And I'm losing my mind
But I sure don't know why
I go, I go against the grain

Well, the barley don't grow free
From all the Creeping Charlie
I go, I go against the grain

Don't say au revoir,
Be sure I'm very sorry
I go, I go against the grain

Well, the wheat will get eaten
If the aphid finds it sweet
I go, I go against the grain

Say all that you feel
I don’t deserve a square deal
I go, I go against the grain

Well, the oat's gonna float
So put on your boots and coat
I go, I go against the grain

You know I’m useless on my own
I just sink like a stone
I go, I go against the grain

The wind's blowing the fields my way
I go, I go against the grain
The wind's blowing the fields my way
I go, I go against the grain

Now the timber’s laying low
With my chisel, to and fro
I go, I go against the grain
Carve a little wooden train
For my baby on the way
I go, I go against the grain

“The way that guitar just slides around, it reminds me of when I was a child and we would take baths on Saturday night while my mother had AM country on the radio.”
