Straw Hat And Dirty Old Hank  Barenaked Ladies




















[Em]     [G]    [Em]     [G]    [Em]     [G]     [Em]      [G]   
[Em]I tend the [G]wheat field tha[Em]t makes your bread        [G]
[Em]I bind the sw[G]eet veal, pluck the hens that [D]make your bed.
[Em]Mother Natu[G]re & Moth[Em]er Earth         [G]
[Em]Are two of three[G] women who dictate what [D]I'm worth.

Chorus:
[Em]I'm the f[G]armer, [D]I work in the fi[C]elds all day
[Em]Don't mean to al[G]arm her, but I k[D]now it was meant to be t[C]his way.

[Em]      [G]     [Em]      [G]                    
You cried a tear, I wiped it dry.
I put you up upon a pedestal so high.
If you should waver, if you should sway,
I'll catch you, spread my tiny wings and fly away
[Em]You signed your pictur[G]e with an O and X[Em]          [C]
[Em]I bet you don't w[G]rite "love" each time y[D]ou sign your checks.

REPEAT CHORUS

[C]All of this [D]corn I grow, I gr[G]ow [G/F#]it all for you[Em]
[C]I took a hatchet to the radio, I [D]did it[G] al[G/F#]l for you [Em]
[C]But you could have written ba[D]ck and you could have said "thank you".         [CM7]
[C]I guess you got [D]better things, [C]I guess you got better [D]things
[C]I guess you got be[D]tter things , better things to[Em] do
[G]Better things to do,[Em]      [G]         better things [Em]to do, [G]                        [D]
better things to do, oh.

You say you love me, is that the truth?
Although they've heard the songs, my friends need living proof.
I know your address, I ring the bell,
I bring you flowers and a .22 with shells.

REPEAT CHORUS

Outtro:
[Em]    [G]   [Em]    [G]   [Em]    [G]   [Em]    [G]           [Em]
