I carry my father’s brand

I live in the loveless places
I’m used to the heavy hand
I have no social graces
A life with no grand plan
There are those who get the blessing
Who inherit their father’s land
There are those who get the beatings
Who carry their father’s brand

I fell in love with a girl from town
But all I had was sand
They all advised against me
I was a rootless man
There is no reason I know of
I’ll never understand
Why it had to be like this
That I carry my father’s brand

And if you see me by the river
you must know to leave me well lone
And if you see me in the valley
You know that I must live alone

One night he let me have it
With my broken heart I ran
Searching for an answer
I lived in fear of man
I lived my life in fear of him
Like a shadow across the land
With my tears of loneliness
I wear my father’s brand
