Fence Post Blues Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

words and music by Arlo Guthrie 

 

Sitting down on a country fence post 

Sitting down watchin' trucks roll by 

Sitting down under the light of day now 

You know that I won't tell you no lies 

 

I've been here for an hour or so 

And nothing much is going down 

I don't care much anyway 

Because you know I've been around 

 

Here on the edge of the green fields growing 

And the sunlight warming all around 

And the blowing of the early mist in the morning 

You know that I don't hear a sound 

 

Till once in a while, when a truck rolls by, 

Carrying a overload 

I don't wanna go nowhere right now 

I feel like my future sold 

 

Stand on the good land children 

You know that it won't do you in 

I must have been here one time before 

But I wonder where the hell I've been 

 

Early in the morning when the sun comes up 

And I'm walkin' all around the field 

Thinkin' to myself about the city life scenes 

And man you know they ain't for real 

 

All you got to do is stick your foot in your mouth 

And tell it where you want to go 

End up talkin' to yourself some time 

Alone along a country road 

 

Stand on the good land children 

I feel like I'm bound to stay 

And do the same this morning 

Like I went and did yesterday 

 

Stand on the good land children 

You know that it won't do you in 

I must have been here one time before 

But I wonder where the hell I've been
