New Plowed Ground
From Take the Road Less Traveled
2006, Al Dunkleman, Heartfelt Americana Music (ASCAP)

Someone said, "You can't go back home"
I wish I could prove him wrong
I'm a stranger here in my own home town
And a stranger where I'm bound

The smell in the air from the new plowed ground
That's where my roots are found
Roots that go down deep and wide
Roots I cannot hide

Above my raisin' so they say
Why judge me this-a-way
For even though I may have changed
You'll find I'm still the same (Chorus)

Six-hundred miles away from my home
In this city all alone
Missing my friends and my family
Am I where I want to be? (Chorus)
