​The Parable Of Ramón

This song is by Richie Havens.

Ramón, he drives a four wheeled cart
His plow cracks the hardened sod
A fourth of which he grows for God
In a land that God's forgotten
In a land that God's forgotten

Serene, they say she bore his child
Like some creature running wild,
Because old Ramón had been beguiled
By someone much younger and fairer then she
By someone much younger and fairer then she

Ramón they say he took his life
And killed both the older and the younger wife
Because in the midst of earthly strife
His stars had turned against him
His stars had turned against him

Ramón, he drives a four wheeled cart
His plow it cracks the hardened sod
A fourth of which he grows for God
In a land that God's forgotten
A land that God's forgotten
