Keni Thomas — 7 Days lyrics

With Michael McDonald

Sunflowers shine forever as far as I can see
I'm heading home to Kansas now on 7 days of leave
There'll be 14 hour work days on vacation
Keeping this ole farm alive ain't no part time occupation

Chorus:
Oh, it must be your prayers that lead me
Back here where you need me
To the farm where I was born
Just like your Daddy's dad before
Well, it seems like it's been forever
You've been hanging on through
The wind and the weather,
And you're counting on the only son you ever raised
So I'll do all I can to save this place
One man, two hands, and 7 days

Well, it's all you've ever known, so it's hard to understand
The sacrifice it takes just to pull something from the land
So I'll keep turning over acres to get 'em ready for the corn
And I will mend the crumbling fences, that I repaired the year before

Chorus:
Oh, it must be your prayers that lead me
Back here where you need me
To the farm where I was born
Just like your Daddy's dad before
Well, it seems like it's been forever
You've been hanging on through
The wind and the weather,
And you're counting on the only son you ever raised
So I'll do all I can to save this place
One man, two hands, and 7 days

Bridge:
When I doubt what difference I can make in 7 days of leave
I remember what the lord did with one day less me

Chorus:
Oh, it must be your prayers that lead me
Back here where you need me
To the farm where I was born
Just like your Daddy's dad before
Well, it seems like it's been forever
You've been hanging on through
The wind and the weather,
And you're counting on the only son you ever raised
So I'll do all I can to save this place
One man, two hands, and 7 days
