Tracy & Ginny,

Isn't it on an old N.L.C.R. Folkways LP?? :-)

All the best to you two.

From Motoya Kitagawa's Bluegrass Songbook

Thirty two acres

I saw the timber for the cabin floor
I build a plank fence out of locust boards
I work the corn rows in the early morn
And raise a family on a poor man's farm

Thirty two acres of bottom land
Bought and paid for with my own hands
Worth a fortune to a working man
Thirty two acres of bottom land

I planted a peach tree now the leaves are dying
I watered a grape vine, it's no longer mine
The country's taking everything I own
Cause it's on the right of way for a four lane road

Jeri, Queen of Alta Vista
"If it's anywhere on the web, I might be able to find it!"

Thirty two acres

I sawed the timber for the cabin floor.
I built a plank fence out of locust boards.
I worked the corn rows in the early morn,
And raised a family on a poor man's farm.

Thirty-two acres of bottom land
Bought and paid for with my own hands
Worth a fortune to a working man
Thirty-two acres of bottom land

My son was born on a feather bed.
He had my blue eyes and my hair of red,
But he lies sleeping 'neath the willow tree.
Down by the creek bed lies a part of me.

Thirty-two acres of bottom land
Bought and paid for with my own hands
Worth a fortune to a working man
Thirty-two acres of bottom land

I planted a peach tree. Now the leaves are dying.
I watered a grape vine. It's no longer mine.
The county's taken everything I own
'Cause it's on the right-of-way for a four-lane road.

Thirty-two acres of bottom land
Bought and paid for with my own hands
Worth a fortune to a working man
Thirty-two acres of bottom land
