Weeds in the Field

  • Mark Bainbridge
  • Weeds In The Field


You (We) are the good seeds in the crop,

You (We) are the harvest

You’re (We’re) not the weeds which cause the rot,

You (We) are the Harvest

VS 1

No matter how good the soil can be

No matter how good the seed or its quality

Some weeds will be planted by the wind

Some weeds will grow,…BUT,…   CH.

VS 2

The weeds will be strong and as they grow

They’ll try to rob the good seeds soil

Together they’ll follow the sun’s rays

Some weeds will grow,..BUT,…    CH.

VS 3

The weeds we know, only so well

Hate and greed and selfish deed.

They grow inside you if you let them,

So don’t you let them,…FOR,…     CH.
