Dust Bowl Dance
Mumford & Sons Lyrics


The young man stands on the edge of his porch
The days were short and the father was gone
There was no one in the town and no one in the field
This dusty barren land had given all it could yield

I've been kicked off my land at the age of sixteen
And I have no idea where else my heart could have been
I placed all my trust at the foot of this hill
And now I am sure my heart can never be still
So collect your courage and collect your horse
And pray you never feel this same kind of remorse

Seal my heart and break my pride
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I've done and do my time

Well you are my accuser, now look in my face
Your oppression reeks of your greed and disgrace
So one man has and another has not
How can you love what it is you have got
When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor?
Liars and thieves you know not what is in store

There will come a time I will look in your eye
You will pray to the God that you always denied
Then I'll go out back and I'll get my gun
I'll say, "You haven't met me, I am the only son"

Seal my heart and break my pride
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I've done and do my time

Seal my heart and break my pride
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide
Align my heart, my body, my mind
To face what I've done and do my time

Well yes sir, yes sir, yes it was me
I know what I've done, 'cause I know what I've seen
I went out back and I got my gun
I said, "You haven't met me, I am the only son"

I upgraded the format so it is easier to follow,
.
The young man stands on the edge of his porch.
The days were short and the father was gone.
There was no one in the town and no one in the field.
This dusty barren land had given all it could yield.

I've been kicked off my land at the age of sixteen,
And I have no idea where else my heart could have been.
I placed all my trust at the foot of this hill,
And now I am sure my heart can never be still;
So collect your courage and collect your horse,
And pray you never feel this same kind of remorse.

Seal my heart and break my pride,
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide.
Align my heart, my body, my mind,
To face what I've done and do my time.

Well you are my accuser, now look in my face.
Your oppression reeks of your greed and disgrace,
So one man has and another has not.
How can you love what it is you have got,
When you took it all from the weak hands of the poor?
Liars and thieves you know not what is in store.
There will come a time I will look in your eye,
You will pray to the God that you always denied,
Then I'll go out back and I'll get my gun;
I'll say, "You haven't met me, I am the only son".

Seal my heart and break my pride,
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide.
Align my heart, my body, my mind,
To face what I've done and do my time.

Seal my heart and break my pride,
I've nowhere to stand and now nowhere to hide.
Align my heart, my body, my mind,
To face what I've done and do my Time!

Well yes sir, yes sir, yes it was me-
I know what I've done, 'cause I know what I've seen.
I went out back and I got my gun,
I said, "You haven't met me, I am the only son..."
