    Lyrics

    He climbs up on his John Deere
    Shoves a plug of Redman in his jaw
    His eyes stretch 'cross the valley
    Way down to where they're putting up a mall

    His baseball cap says Kansas
    The Washington says how much he can grow
    There's a bank note in his pocket
    That says in 30 days they'll have his home

    It's hard living in a broken heartland
    It's enough to break a man and his beliefs
    Lord give him strength to mend this broken heartland
    'Cause he's living proof of a dying breed

    His sons gone off to college
    Learning skills that'll get him off the farm
    And his wife just keeps it all inside
    Still he finds his only comfort in her arms

    And this tractors been his treasure
    Oh, how could an auction measure its true worth
    And every night he asks the Father
    That he may never lose this mother earth

    It's hard living in a broken heartland
    It's enough to break a man and his beliefs
    Lord give him strength to mend this broken heartland
    'Cause he's living proof of a dying breed

    Lord give him strength to mend this broken heartland
    'Cause he's living proof of a dying breed...
