From the Heart -- Willie Nelson & Bob Dylan


 
Willie Nelson is a life-long activist and co-founder of Farm Aid, a non-profit organization he started with Neil Young and John Mellencamp to "raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on their land." He is the founder of the Willie Nelson Peace Research Institute, and the distributor of his own blend of biodiesel fuel called "BioWillie."
 
Willie teamed up with Bob Dylan in a moving rendition of what is happening throughout this nation today -- the American Dream is falling apart at the seams...

Here are the lyrics --
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
And the bankers are taking my home and my land from me
There's a big achin' hole in my chest now where my heart was
And a hole in the sky where God used to be
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a well where the water's so bitter nobody can drink
Ain't no way to get high and my mouth is so dry that I can't speak
Don't they know that I'm dyin' why's nobody cryin' for me
My American dream fell apart at the seams
You tell me what it means you tell me what it means
There's a home place under fire tonight in a heartland
And bankers are taking the homes and the land away
There's a young boy closin' his eyes tonight in a heartland
Who will wake up a man with some land and a loan he can't pay
His American dream fell apart at the seams
You tell me what it means you tell me what it means
My American dream...
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
Watch and listen...
