The Farmer Is The Man Lyrics

[Intro]
Oh the farmer is the man who feeds them all
If you'll only look and see, then I think you will agree
That the farmer is the man who feeds them all

[Chorus]
The farmer is the man, the farmer is the man
Lives on credit 'til the fall
Then they take him by the hand
And they lead him through the land
And the middle man's the man who gets it all

[Verse 1]
When the lawyer hangs around and the butcher cuts a pound
Oh the farmer is the man who feeds them all
And the preacher and the cook go a-strolling by the brook
But the farmer is the man who feeds them all.

[Chorus]
Oh the farmer is the man, the farmer is the man
Lives on credit 'til the fall
But the interest rate's so high
It's a wonder he don't die
For the mortgage man's the one who gets it all

[Verse 2]
When the banker says he's broke, and the merchant's up in smoke
They forget that it's the farmer feeds them all
It would put them to the test if the farmer took a rest
Then they'd know that it's the farmer feeds them all

[Chorus]
Oh the farmer is the man, the farmer is the man
Lives on credit 'til the fall
And his pants are wearing thin
His condition, it's a sin
He's forgot that he's the man who feed 'em all
