Josh Woodward: “Home Improvement” (Acoustic Performance)


Well, you know I was a farmer when I was a
younger man Until the fields got paved with asphalt and
they took away my land And now the monument before us, it stands
so tall and proud A glorious new minimall upon the earth that
I once plowed I sold my house out in the country to rent
a trailor by the mall It’s not so bad except the kitchen’s just
a little small I got a job at the local hardware store, where
I work till five o’clock But now they built another home improvement
palace down the block What’s the sense of all this home improvement
I liked my home the way it was before If this is what our town has come to stand
for I don’t think we need improvement anymore I lost my job at the hardware store when the
owner closed it down He said the rent was just too high to keep
his family in this town He sold his house to an executive, who tore
it down to build anew A million dollar mansion with a $20 view What’s the sense of all this home improvement
I liked my home the way it was before If this is what our town has come to stand
for I don’t think we need improvement anymore One day this town will reach its goal and
everyone will have A Mercedes in the driveway of their subdivision
land Clear the way for progress by demolishing
the past 100 miles an hour and we’re going nowhere
fast What’s the sense of all this home improvement
I liked my home the way it was before If this is what our town has come to stand
for I don’t think we need improvement anymore
