By Brett Beavers and Deryl Dodd

1st v

He was born on the land that he's still standin’ on
Plowin’ fields and long hard days is all he's ever known
The backbone of this country, a good and honest man
Fallen prey to a modern world that he don't understand

2nd v

Passed down from generations, a way of life that's in his blood
He still believes in the family and the good Lord up above
But now there's a great big highway where his cattle used to feed
And every inch of land he loses just brings him to his knees

Chorus

He's losin’ ground, just hangin’ on
So he fights a little harder each day
Look around, before it's all gone
No they’re never gonna break the man down
But, in his heart he knows that he's losin’ ground

3rd v

Well, he stares out of his window, at all the changes takin’ place
And he wonders if this way of life will someday be erased
And he knows it's more than the beauty of this land that will be lost
It's the values to this nation the American farmer brought

Chorus

But he's losin’ ground, just hangin on
So he fights a little harder each day
You better look around, before it's all gone
No they’re never gonna break the man down
But in his heart he knows that he's losin ground
And if he does, we'll all be losin’ ground
