Give Me the Good Earth

This song is by Manfred Mann's Earth Band and appears on the album The Good Earth (1974).

This song is a cover of "Give Me the Good Earth" by Gary Wright.
Give me the good earth that I was born on
Give me the sunshine, the grass and the trees
Give me open skies that I can dream on
Give me the flowers, the birds and the bees

Give me the good earth to lay my head on
Give me the mountains, the cool summer breeze
Give me the forests, the deep river valleys
Give me the oceans, the fish and the seas

I don't need to know about the things that lay beyond my life
I don't need to know about the things that I don't need

Give me the good earth to rest my mind on
Give me the rainfall that fills empty streams
Give me the life in the hills and the meadows
Give me the seasons, all the changes they bring

I don't need to know about the things that lay beyond my life
I don't need to hear about the things that I don't need

Give me the good earth that I was born on
Give me my sunshine
Give me open skies that I can dream on
Give me the rainfall that fills empty streams
Give me the good earth
Give me the good earth

Give me the good earth that I was born on
Give me the sunshine, the grass and the trees
Give me open skies that I can dream on
Give me the flowers, the birds and the bees
Give me the good earth to lay my head on
Give me the mountains, the cool summer breeze
Give me the forests, the deep river valleys
Give me the oceans, the fish and the seas
