Chris Stapleton – Scarecrow In The Garden

And I’ve been reading Revelations
[Outro]
And I’ve been thinking about that river
With my bare feet in the river
I came in late September
Where I know they’ll lay me down

Wondering how it turned to blood
So the land was left to me

The youngest one of three

The rains just seem to flood
And the fields were green as dollars
Every rock that goes around
Well the redhead’s son got older
And prayed the rain would come
Cause the dirt was black as night
[Bridge]
Searching for the free man’s ground
Well he came from Northern Ireland
[Chorus]
There’s a scarecrow in the garden
And raised a redhead son

[Verse 1]
That looks like Lucifer
And took a brown eyed wife
I know every single fencepost
With my bare feet in the river
And my sisters off and married
That looks like Lucifer
I was sitting here all night
I’ve been staring at the red oak
[Chorus]
Then they worked the land together
He built a house of timber
The fields ain’t what they once were
There’s a bible in my left hand
I’ve been sitting here all morning
There’s a scarecrow in the garden
On a West Virginia plow

And I’ve been reading Revelations
And a pistol in my right

[Verse 3]
[Verse 2]
And he came to bet his fortune
