Subject: Lyric request; LAST WALK HOME
I heard the Battlefield Band perform this on NPR a few weeks ago, and can't get it out of my head. The song is about tractors replacing horses for farm work. The only part that stuck with me was the chorus.

So, steady boys, walk on
Your work is nearly done
No more You'll till nor plow the fields
The horses day is done
And this will be your last walk home
So, steady boys, walk on

Thanks and take care,
