Lyrics

Momma worked on the farmhard as any man I know

She could plow and sow the fields,and when she had to shoot the crows

She had faith in the land and sky, faith in the good books verse

She pulled us through like a string of a shoewith her wise and simple words

 

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

          When the grass is tall and dry 

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

          Stack that barn rafter high

          There’s a time for summer, a time for snow

          A time to let things go

          From the break of daylight

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

 

So when I lay staring at the ceiling, my heart like a ton of lead

There’s momma’s voice in the back of my head with those healing words she said

Even if it rains like hell and we have to start from scratch

There’s a brighter spell ahead; thank God for what we have

 

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

          When the grass is tall and dry 

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

          Stack that barn rafter high

          There’s a time for summer, a time for snow

          A time to let things go

          From the break of daylight

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

 

There’s a change on the horizon now, from midnight blue to gold

I’m puttin' on my boots, there’s coffee on the stove

 

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

          When the grass is tall and dry 

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

          Stack that barn rafter high

          There’s a time for summer, a time for snow

          A time to let things go

          From the break of daylight

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines

 

          There’s a time for summer, a time for snow

          A time to let things go

          From the break of daylight

          Make Hay When The Sun Shines
