Straw Hat And Dirty Old Hank

Barenaked Ladies

 EmGEmGEmGEmG
 EmGEmG
 I tend the wheat field that makes your bread         
 EmGD
 I bind the sweet veal, pluck the hens that make your bed.
 EmGEmG
 Mother Nature & Mother Earth          
 EmGD
 Are two of three women who dictate what I'm worth.

Chorus:
 EmGDC
 I'm the farmer, I work in the fields all day
 EmGDC
 Don't mean to alarm her, but I know it was meant to be this way.

 EmGEmG
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
 EmGEmC
 You signed your picture with an O and X           
 EmGD
 I bet you don't write "love" each time you sign your checks.

REPEAT CHORUS

 CDGG/F#Em
 All of this corn I grow, I grow it all for you 
 CDGG/F#Em
 I took a hatchet to the radio, I did it all for you  
 CDCM7
 But you could have written back and you could have said "thank you".          
 CDCD
 I guess you got better things, I guess you got better things
 CDEm
 I guess you got better things , better things to do
 GEmGEmGD
 Better things to do,               better things to do,                          
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
