    There was a time
    A simpler time
    When a man could be sure of where he stood
    I used to work at the yard
    Working honest and hard
    The hours were long but the pay was good
    I had a family and friends
    So many friends
    We'd drive to the lake on holidays
    Back then it wasn't so dear
    For a sandwich or beer
    At night I still dream I can see their faces
    Certain things that you depend upon
    There are places that you know
    And the faces of America
    Oh, where did they go?
    Where did they go?
    I was born on a farm
    A midwestern farm
    I rode on the tractor with my dad
    And though we never had much
    It was always enough
    And we made the best of what we had
    Then came four years of drought
    And the bottom dropped out
    My father was broken like the rest
    I can still see his hands
    Signing over his lands
    And the bankers grow fat on the flesh
     of the dispossessed
    Certain things that you depend upon
    There are places I can go
    I sift the ashes of America
    For someplace I used to
    (someplace I used to)
    Someplace I used to
    (someplace I used to)
    Someplace I used to know
    There was a time
    A simpler time
    When a man could be sure of where he stood
    I used to work at the yard
    Working honest and hard
    The hours were long but the pay was oh
    So good
    Certain things that you depend upon
    I used to think were guaranteed
    Like the right of every man to work
    And feed his family
    And feed his family
    And the faces of America
    Seem so distant and estranged
    Have their eyes become too blind to see
    How much their hearts have changed?
    (how much their hearts)
    How much their hearts have changed?
    (how much their hearts)
    How much their hearts have changed?
