Listen to the song & complete the missing words ;

  by     , rw by rw
Gonna make this   grow
All it takes is a   and a  
And a piece of fertile ground.

Inch by inch, row by row
Someone bless these   I
Someone warm them from below
Till the   comes tumblin' down

Pullin'   and pickin'  
Man is made of  and  
Feel the need to grow my
'Cause the time is close at  

Rainful rain,   and  
Find my way in nature's  
Tune my body and my brain
To the music from the land

put the lines in the correct order :

 If you give her love and care
 Plant your rows straight and long
 Mother Earth will make you strong
Temper them with prayer and song
choose the  the correct word :

{Old / Young } crow watchin' {  angrily / hungrily}
From his perch in yonder { tree /  three}
In {  your / my} garden I'm as free
As that feathered thief up {there / their}.
