Speedy Briggs - A Teachers Song
Misc Unsigned Bands
[Verse] D You start with an empty field, You plow it up and plant the seed, G And God provides the sunshine, Em A7 And all the rain it needs. D To grow into a tree that bears, Fruit pure and sweet, G A7 D A product of your labor and love. D In a tender little baby, God gave you and empty field to till, G And a heart and a mind, Em A7 Filled with seeds of love. D So plant the seeds and work the field, And god will take your labor, G A7 D And grow 'em into something good. [Chorus] D G A Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty, D G A Don't be afraid of the sweat on your brow. D G A 'Cause when you teach the children to live, G A D It always seems worth it somehow. [Verse] D Each day I look over, fields vast and empty, G Waiting to be plowed. Em A7 And a seed planted there. D I teach them and I love, Then I stand back and watch, G A7 D As God grows them into something good. [Chorus 2] D G A Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty, D G A Don't be afraid of the sweat on your brow. D G A 'Cause when you teach the children to lOve, G A D It always seems worth it somehow.
