"Just a Farmer", you said
And I laughed 'cause I knew
All the things that farmers
Are able to do.

They must study the land,
Then watch the sky
And figure just when
Is the right time and why -

To sow and to plant
To buy and to sell
To go to the market
With their canola and well -

You know the books
That farmers must keep
To pay all the expenses
And be able to sleep.

And you know the fixin'
That farmers must do
When machines like mad monsters
Blow a gasket or two.

And farmers work hard,
Far into the night
To get the crop off
When the time is just right

Farmers are actually
Smart and well learned
One of the best of professions
They shouldn’t be spurned.
