The farmer song  

Murray McLauchlin


[A]Dusty old f[A6]armer out w[A]orking your f[A6]ields
Hanging [A]down over y[A6]our tractor wh[E]eels
The [E]sun beatin' d[E/F#]own turns the [E]red pain to o[E/F#]range
And [E]rusty old [E/F#]patches of s[A]teel
There's [A]no farmer songs o[A6]n that car r[A]adio
Just c[A]owboys, truck dr[A6]ivers and p[D]ain
Well this is my [Bm]way to say th[A]anks for the m[F#m]eal
And I h[A]ope there's no sh[E]ortage of r[A]ain
Chorus          [A]Straw hats and [A6]old dirty h[A]ankies
======= A A6 E E/F#
Mopin' a face like a shoe
                Th[E]anks for the [E/F#]meal here's a s[E]ong that is r[E/F#]eal
                From a [E]kid from the [E/F#]city to y[A]ou
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
