mclaughlin murray - "the farmer song"


by Murray McLachlin

A A6 A A6
Dusty old farmer out working your fields
A A6 E E/F#
Hanging down over your tractor wheels
E E/F# E E/F#
The sun beatin' down turns the red pain to orange
E E/F# A A6
And rusty old patches of steel
A A6 A A6
There's no farmer songs on that car radio
A A6 D
Just cowboys, truck drivers and pain
Bm A F#m
Well this is my way to say thanks for the meal
A E A A6
And I hope there's no shortage of rain

A A6 A A6
Chorus Straw hats and old dirty hankies
======= A A6 E E/F#
Mopin' a face like a shoe
E E/F# E E/F#
Thanks for the meal here's a song that is real
E E/F# A A6
From a kid from the city to you

Repeat chorus

The combines gang up, take most of the bread
Things just ain't like they used to be
Though your kids are out after the American dream
And they're workin in big factories
Now If I come on by, when you're out in the sun
Can I wave at you just like a friend
These days when everyone's taking so much
There's somebody giving back in

Repeat chorus
