Dust Bowl Dance

Lyrics

The young man stands on the edge of his porch
The days were short and the father was gone
There was no one in the town and no one in the field
This dusty barren land had given all it could yield

The young man stands on the edge of his porch
The days were short and the father was gone
There was no one in the town and no one in the field

This song is so amazing. "Your oppression reeks of your greed and disgrace!" The lyrics are so deep, and contain un inexpressibl e fury
Probably the best track on Sigh No More.
"I went out back and I got my gun, I said you haven't met me, I am
The only son."
I love listening to this song if I'm sad or pissed off. It helps
Love this song. Always have. It speaks the truth. Someone did break my pride. -_-
"Your oppression reeks of your greed and disgrace!" Holy crap, Marcus can write!
I love this song it sounds really cool.
Omg this is about the great depression
This is the song that made me realize how much I love Mumford and Sons. Seeing him on the drums... That's passion for music!
And I went out back and I got my gun, I said you haven't met me, I am the only son!! Oh man I am in love with this song!!
This dusty barren land gave them all they could yield!! I love that part. I just love the banjo riffs, too. I want a banjo so bad!!
I love the depth of many of Mumford & Son's songs & lyrics, but this one has a very specific magical musical quality to it... Maybe it's anger, but it's very therapeutic!
I think it has an evil feel to it. I love it!!! :)
This is one of my new favorite songs by Mumford.
Great song
Such a awesome song!!
Luv their songs!

Everyone watch Mumford and Sons' performance of this song at Glastonbury 2010. It will blow your mind.
