The Farmer's Song
Murray McLauchlan
Album: Murray McLauchlan (1972)

Intro: A   A6   A   A6   A   A6   A   A6

A A6 A A6Dusty old farmer out workin' your fields
A A6 E E/F#Hangin' down over your tractor wheels
E E/F# E E/F#The sun beatin' down turns the red paint to orange
E E/F# A A6 And rusty old patches of steel
A A6 A A6There's no farmer songs on that car radio
A A6 DJust cowboys, truck drivers and pain
E A F#mWell this is my way to say thanks for the meal
Bm E A A6 And I hope there's no shortage of rain
A A6 A A6 Straw hat and old dirty hankies
A A6 E E/F# Moppin' 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 If I come by, when you're out in the sun Can I wave at you just like a friend? These days when everyone's takin' so much There's somebody givin' back in Chorus (x2) A6 (002222) E/F# (022102) Thanks to the version from Dan Nicholas of old Arnprior, with minor corrections.
