Serendipity, Pandora, Bluegrass and Brewing

So, I'm listening to a Bluegrass channel I created on Pandora. Alison Krauss and Union Station comes on playing Pastures of Plenty and a wonderful thing happened. I heard something in the lyrics that floored me.
Artist: Krauss Alison
Song: Pastures of Plenty
Album: Lonely Runs Both Ways

Well, it's always we ramble, this river and I
All along your green valleys, I work till I die
My land I'll defend with my life need it be
'Cause my pastures of plenty must always be free

Green pastures of plenty from dry desert ground
From the Grand Coulee Dam where the waters run down
Every state in this union us migrants have been
Lord, we come with the dust and we go with the wind

California, Arizona, I harvest your crops
Then it's on up North to Oregon to gather your hops
Dig the beet from your ground, cut the grapes from your vine
Just to place on your table your that light, sparkling wine

Well, it's always we ramble, this river and I
All along your green valleys, I work till I die
My land I'll defend with my life need it be
'Cause my pastures of plenty must always be free
