Yes, indedy sho-nuff needy I got the feeling to stretch on out My children are cryin' my elders are dying. & me I'm relying on a check for rent If I gotta be broke then ain't no joke I'm moving to the country and buying some land And I'll be alright if I can rest at night Knowing my children got land to stand on. Ache'n 4 acres plenty of acres Money spent in rent ain't earning me cent. Ain't gettin no caddy, no Benz, no jeep. Until I got some $ for some land to keep No more children crying instead they'll be running Running free and wild in the heat of the sun. 'cause once I'm gone I wanna feel strong That my children will go on, family land and all sayin'
I got some land to stand on no more ache'n 4 acres No beggin for leftovers got some space of my own I got grounds to raise on no more ache'n 4 acres No more giving to takers got some land to leave on!
No more elders passin' without my kids askin' Papa who's tombstones are those in the yard Family gotta stay close all of us gotta stay close Ache'n 4 acres 4 buildin' a nation. Ain't about depending on government spendin' Especially when the government's got a plan of their own Separate from me-separate from U Separate from most-in sync with a few. Ache'n 4 acres plenty of acres My grandpappa had em all but he lost em & he sold em The cities were a growin' and grandpa's getting older Little did he know that his land was valuable Got land to stand on then U can stand up! Stand up for your rights as a woman, as a man Man O' man my choices expand Ain't got me no money but I got me some land
