*** THIS BOX HAS BEEN PULLED, THE BUSH IT WAS IN WAS CUT DOWN, BUT THEY DID LEAVE THE BOX! WILL BE REPLANTED LATER **
Although about Texas, this song reminds me of all my Farmer Friends here in Illinois who survived the last few years on faith.
That hail storm back in '83,
Sure did take a toll on his family.
But he stayed strong and carried on,
Just like his Dad and Granddad did before him.
On his knees every night,
He prays: Please let my crops and children grow,
'Cause that's all he's ever known.
He just takes the tractor another round,
An' pulls the plow across the ground,
And sends up another prayer.
He says: Lord, I never complain, I never ask: 'Why?'
Please don't let my dreams run dry,
Underneath, underneath this Amarillo Sky.
From I-74 take IL Hwy 78 North approx 20 miles until you see a sign for Ham Rd/Twp Rd 125. Turn West onto Twp Rd 125. Drive approx 1 mile until you come to the intersection of 200 E & 600 N. There is a tree on the right. It’s the only tree around. Behind this tree under a stone is what this area stands for. Please hide as well or better. When I planted it there was snow on the ground and no leaves on the bushes, we will have to see what it looks like come spring. This field is farmed by my farmer friends the Wilsons, who helped me plant the box. Please help our Farmer Friends, buy ethanol.
