Harvest Day

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Road Kill


The chord progressions to this song are:

        G, D, C, D

        G, Em, C, D

        G, D, C, D*


*Note: This D is done by doing an open C chord and then moving it up two frets which is sort of a D chord with open G and open high-E string notes. I guess this would make the chord technically a Dsus4add9 (the sus4 is the G note and the add9 is the E note).

I donít like no 'lectrics guitar

††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

I like the way that my acoustic sound

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††† D

I donít charge six bucks a show the way they do uptown

I'm not here to mess with your head

I donít wear no spandex, day-glow tights

All I need's a fast, free cold beer

And Iíll play this crap all night


My music may be dribble

But I got nothin' better to do

Than to sit here as long as Iím able

And sing these stupid songs for you

I donít make much sense but I never really try

I like sittin' in the middle of my merry-go-round

Watchin' my world go by and by and by


If Iím walkin' by your front yard

I might think itís pretty neat

You got plastic covers for all your trees

And your grass is all concrete

You paint it pretty colors

But you still wake up with fear

That the pretty colors might fade away

In a hundred thousand years


Old miss Mother Nature

Sheís gonna heal her wounds so well

And I hope they don't pass through my land

As they pave their way to hell

And you can beat your mother

But you cannot kill her soul

The two of you are stuck together

She ainít never gonna let you go


In the distant future

When your time has long since past

My spirit will be laughin'

As the farmerís plow cuts across your ass

My friend the farmer

When he dies his work is done

Cuz every good old farmer

Was once a good farmer's son


Donít fear the thunder

Let the lightning light your way

And the biggest farmer in the galaxy says

ďIt's almost Harvest DayĒ


The biggest farmer in the galaxy says

ďIt's almost Harvest DayĒ
