Capo 3.

32000X  G (hammer-on 3X2013)
xx0232  D (hammer-on then pull-off 3rd string)
X3201X  C (hammer-on 5th then 4th string)
022000  Em

                G             D                  C
They're growing houses in the fields between the towns
        Em                 D               C    G
And the Starlight drive-in movie's closing down
    G                   D          C
The road is gone to the way it was before
        Em              D         C    G
And the spaces won't be spaces anymore

Well two more farms were broken by the drought
First the Wagners now the Fullers are pulling out
Developers pay better than the corn
But this was not the place where they were born

CHORUS:
C                       D
  There's houses in the fields no prayers for steady rain this year
C               D                            C
  Houses in the fields there's houses in the fields
      D                  C              G
  The last few farms are growing out of here

Well at first he wouldn't sell but then he would
Now there'll be children playing where the silo stood
The words came from the marrow of his bones
It was the last sure way to pay off all the loans

And the new streets will be named for kings and queens
And a ransom will paid for castle's dream
The model's sign is crested with a lion
And the farmer's they will have enough to die on

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO ( = 2 lines of the verse)

Well I guess no one should be afraid of change
But tell me why is there a fence for every open range
Well it's a sign I'm getting on in years
When nothing new is welcome to these eyes and ears

REPEAT CHORUS

They're growing houses in the fields between the towns
And the Starlight drive-in movie is all closed down
The road is gone to the way it was before
And the spaces won't be spaces anymore
No the spaces won't be spaces anymore
