[Intro]
E  A  B7  E    E  A  B7  E

[Verse 1]
EWell the farmer prayed for a better year
AAnd the crops were good like the Lord did hear
B7But his barn burnt down with winter near
E AThe answer came in white and black
B7 EIn the farmer's almanac, it says
A B7 EIf a man could have half his wishes, he could double his trouble
EA sweet old lady was eighty four
AWhen her kinfolks came for a month or more
B7Now from overworked she's on the other shore
E AMuch too late with ya'll come back
B7 EAnd it says in the farmer's almanac, it says
A B7 EVisitors and fish smell after 3 days
[Verse 2]
EOur leader was a silver-tongued man
AHe deceived the people of the land
B7And when he got caught he couldn't stand
E AIt's a little off-beat and a little off-track
B7 EBut it says in the farmer's almanac, it says
A B7 EIn rivers and bad government, the lightest things float to the top
E A B7 E E A B7 E [Verse 3]
ERod said I don't believe in God
ARod died and lies beneath the sod
B7Well God did not believe in Rod
E ALife is a troubled and a wearied track
B7 EBut it says in the farmer's almanac, it says
A B7 EFeed your faith and your doubts will starve to death
[Verse 4]
EThe little boy followed the honey bee
AAnd it flew straight to the honey tree
B7He got stung but got the honey free
E AConsolation for the things you lack
B7 EIs in the farmer's almanac, it says
A B7 EGod gives us the darkness so we can see the stars
[Verse 5]
EHe came home 3 hours late from work
ASaid "I had a flat and fell in the dirt"
B7She said "and got lipstick on your shirt"
E AWell it turned out like Jill and Jack
B7 EAnd it says in the farmer's almanac, it says
A B7 ELies have to be covered up, truth can run around naked
E A B7 E E A B7 E [Verse 6]
EHe said honey you know I'm true
AI just look at other women that's all I do
B7Then she caught him with her best friend Peggy Sue
E ASometimes some women will look back
B7 EAnd it says in the farmer's almanac, it says
A B7 EThere is a lot of difference in window-shoppin' and shop-liftin'
[Verse 7]
EI sat down at a shoe-shine stand
AI had a real slow shoe-shine man
B7I said you don't pop that rag like some of 'em can
E AHe looked at me and then he said right back
B7 E"It says in the farmer's almanac, it says
A B7 EThe trouble with the world today is there's too much poppin' and not enough shinin'"
[Outro] E A B7 E E A B7 E
