The Midwest Fall (Kid Rock)

Listen to the wind Lonesome is the sound Blowing in changes and breaking through this town Listen to the heartbeat, heartland's barely breathing Hope and faith are still alive But jobs are steady leaving It chills me to the bone Brings a tear to my eye Like the last days of summer gone It's hard to watch a good thing die In the days of my youth there was dancing in the streets Ford was building motorcars and folks were building dreams 'Round the clock, day and night Working hard's a way of life As I recall It chills me to the bone Brings a tear to my eye Like the last days of summer gone It's hard to watch a good thing die It's the midwest fall Blue collar life Staring at December Dreaming about July The midwest fall Dreams get blown away It's hard to take the midwest fall My grandpa was a union man My daddy watched it burn We never had a lot We lived off what we earned We built the cars and tanks that helped to keep our nation free And now I can't afford to feed my family It chills me to the bone Brings a tear to my eye Like the last days of summer gone It's hard to watch a good thing die It's the midwest fall Blue collar life Staring at December Dreaming about July The midwest fall Dreams get blown away It's hard to take the midwest fall Oh, yeah Oh I can't pay my taxes, Lord I can't afford to feed my kids I guess I'll stay and ride it out Because you are so beautiful The midwest fall Blue collar life Staring at December Dreaming about July The midwest fall Dreams get blown away It's hard to take The midwest fall Uh, don't go away The midwest fall Dreamin', dreamin' The midwest fall Ah, don't go away It's hard to take Please, don't go away You are so beautiful The midwest fall The midwest fall The midwest fall The midwest fall
