My father's name was Hannibal
My mother was Hanna Maria
Everything we owned got all burned up
In the great depression fire.

Strip mines and one crop farming
Drained the green earth dry
We lost it all, only love is left
And that's the one thing money can't buy.

[Chorus]
We're all Dust Bowl children
Singing a Dust Bowl song
And the crops won't grow
And the dust just blows
When the green fields are gone
When the green grass growing
Fields are gone.
When the green fields are gone
When the green grass growing
Fields are gone.

They said in California
There was work of every kind
Well the only job I got out there
Was waiting in a welfare line.

Once I had a dollar
Once I had a dream
But now all the work gets done
by a big ol' machine.

[Chorus]
We're all Dust Bowl children
Singing a Dust Bowl song
And the crops won't grow
And the dust just blows
When the green fields are gone
When the green grass growing
Fields are gone.
When the green fields are gone
When the green grass growing
Fields are gone.
