Farmer’s Cry

You don’ know what I’m going through
You know my crops are down and my tax is due
No you don’t know you just don’t know

You’re saying help the farmers from your city streets
In your ivory towers eating grade A beef
Yeah you know me you just know me

Cause when the wind goes whipping through my wheat fields
It looks just like an ocean wave and my heart goes dead
And I bow my head
And when the sun starts climbing over those white pines
Am I the only guy who really sees it shine
Cause it’s shining yeah it’s still shining

Well the men in suits they made their way out here
I offered them a meal and a homemade beer
But they would not they just could not

They said we’re sorry man we know just how you feel
But it’s all a part of a city deal
Yeah they knew me they just knew me

Oh when the wind goes whipping through my wheat fields
It looks just like an ocean wave and my heart goes dead
And I bow my head
And when the sun starts climbing over those white pines
Am I the only guy who really sees it shine
Cause it’s shining yeah it’s still shining

Well I gave them a ride out to the southern side
I signed the contract and swallowed my pride like poison
It tasted just like poison
So I told them

When the wind goes whipping through my wheat fields
It looks just like an ocean wave and my heart goes dead
And I bow my head
And when the sun starts climbing over those white pines
Am I the only guy who really sees it shine
Cause it’s shining yeah it’s still shining
