lyrics

Early mornin’ sunrise
Rooster crows sayin’ it’s time
To get a move-on
Catch my early morning
Rider with my cousin
I hear the birds start to sing
About the weather
‘Wonder what this day will bring

Work in the field I said work in the field
Nothin’ like growin’ your very next meal
Work in the field I said work in the field
Life may be hard but at least it’s real

And the clouds roll by
Past the daylight moon
And the air is sweet
And I know that soon
I’ll be pushin’ the earth with my plow

We pull up in the rig
A moment to survey the land
Of many colors
Amber and a shade of green
Is comin’ up now
Lookit how mother nature
Seems to work a magic
Not a one can explain

Work in the field I said work in the field
One is born as the other’s killed
Work in the field I said work in the field
An empty heart is sure to be filled

And the sun beats down
And the wind starts blowin’
And the sun climbs higher
And the crows start crowin’
And I wipe the sweat from my brow

Evenin’s gettin’ close
It’s time to bring in the horses
With my cousin
Sit together sharin’ some bread
And some water
Talkin’ ‘bout life and today and time
And wonder what’s to come down the line

Work in the field I said work in the field
Time a keeps a movin’ as it’s standin’ still
Work in the field I said work in the field
An empty heart is sure to be filled

And the sun sinks low
And the wind dies down
And the stars fade in
As we head back home
And I thank God for right now

about

Cutleri Brooklyn, New York

An eclectic, avant-garde approach to traditional folk, combining three-part harmony with unconventional instrumentation accented by otherworldly, abrasive violin licks and slippery, psychedelic clarinet lines, all underpinned by a banjo sound that can be melodious and soothing one moment and percussive and arrhythmic the next.

Fork: Jessie Shaffer
Knife: Heidi Harris
Spoon: Christen Napier
