Set the age filter at the top for 30 days and check a thread called "Scandal in the family" for the second song.

THE FIELDS HAVE TURNED BROWN has been mentioned several times at Mudcat, but I don't think the lyrics have ever been posted.

THE FIELDS HAVE TURNED BROWN

By The Stanley Brothers

Album: "The Complete Columbia: The Stanley Brothers"

Transcribed by Brad Kale (bkbgrass@libertybay.com)


The Fields Have Turned Brown

               D
I left my old home, to ramble this country
               G                      D
My mother and dad, said son don't go wrong.
               G                      D
Remember that God, will always watch over you.
                A                      D
And we will be waiting, for you here at home.


(Chorus)
             G                         D
Son don't go astray, was what they both told me.
                A                     D
Remember that love, for God can be found.
                      G                      D
But now they're both gone, this letter just told me.
                        A                           
D
For years they've been dead, the fields have turned
brown.


For many long years, I've travelled in sorrow.
No thought of the day, when I would return.
Now as I come home, and find no one waiting,
the price I have paid, to live and to learn.

(Chorus)

The lyrics can be found at various sites, but since the song is possibly a Stanley original (which would mean under copyright still in most countries) I won't repost them here.
