This is the story of a boy

Who grew up really really fast

In a village, near a town

Yeah near a town, that's where he was

He used to work all day

While the sun was shining high

High above upon his neck

Yeah it was burning on his neck

And you could hear him sing

The songs he heard once in the fields


Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh Lord let me go (Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh I can't work no more (Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh Lord let me go (Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Oh Lord, I can't work no more (Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)

One day his dad sent him in town

A place he'd never been or seen

Not used to traffic signs or lights

So you can read between the lines

He kept his head high up above

Looking right up at the sky

Nothing would bring him down today

At least that's what he used to say

He didn't see the car

That brought him right into his gra-ave

SOLO (couplet)


Eh, eh, eh [...]

Lord let me go, Lord let me go x5

Lord let me go


So no one to sing in the fields

Only workers in the dust

Burning up from dawn till dusk

Missing that poor little boy's songs

One day his dad came up around

Starting to sing like his son

All workers followed full of joy

Singing and burning in the sun

And you could hear them sing

The songs they heard once in the fields
