My father's name was Hannibal, Mama was Hanna-Mariah
Everything we owned got all burned up in the great depression fire
Strip mines and one crop farming drained the green earth dry
We lost it all till only love was left, and that was one thing money can't buy

We're all dust bowl children
Singing a dust bowl song
And the crops won't grow
And the dust just blows
When the green fields are gone
When the green grass growing fields are gone
When the green fields are gone
When the green grass growing fields are gone

They said in California, there was work of every kind
Well the only job I ever got out there was waiting on a welfare line
Once I had a dollar, once I had a dream
But now all the work is being done by a big ole machine

We're all dust bowl children
Singing a dust bowl song
And the crops won't grow
And the dust just blows
When the green fields are gone
When the green grass growing fields are gone
When the green fields are gone
When the green grass growing fields are gone
