Jim Reeves
The Farmer And The Lord

(Jim Wilson)

(Spoken)
While resting the other evening by the side of the road
I saw an old farmer in the field that he just sowed
His face was all brown and wrinkled from the sun and the wind
And he was talking to the Lord just like he'd be talking to a friend.

Well sir, he said with his voice calm and quiet
Them corn tassels need stackin' I got no strenght to tie it
Had no rain in so long that the fields are mighty dusty
And it's been so unbearable hot that the kids were even gettin' fussy.

Now that grass down and the pasture it should be knee high
If we could just have a little shower Lord,
It might keep the calf from going dry
Oh but listen to me talking you'd think I wasn't grateful
Why if you didn't know me so well Lord
You'd think I was down right hateful.

You'd think I frogot about that new calf that you sent
And the money in the mail that took care of the rent
Mama's cough's better and Johnny's home from the navy
And that good Sunday dinner of chicken and dumplings and gravy.

And that new preacher you sent us Lord he's sure a fine young man
Why he's just convertin' them sinners to beat the band
Well guess I'll mosey on home now Lord
I won't take no more your time.

Guess there's plenty folks here about waitin' to ring your line
Evening to you Lord and watch us over tonight
And don't you worry about us now Lord
'Cause everything is gonna be all right...


Mirror lyrics:

'Cause everything is gonna be all right...
And don't you worry about us now Lord
Evening to you Lord and watch us over tonight
Guess there's plenty folks here about waitin' to ring your line

I won't take no more your time.
Well guess I'll mosey on home now Lord
Why he's just convertin' them sinners to beat the band
And that new preacher you sent us Lord he's sure a fine young man

And that good Sunday dinner of chicken and dumplings and gravy.
Mama's cough's better and Johnny's home from the navy
And the money in the mail that took care of the rent
You'd think I frogot about that new calf that you sent

You'd think I was down right hateful.
Why if you didn't know me so well Lord
Oh but listen to me talking you'd think I wasn't grateful
It might keep the calf from going dry
If we could just have a little shower Lord,
Now that grass down and the pasture it should be knee high

And it's been so unbearable hot that the kids were even gettin' fussy.
Had no rain in so long that the fields are mighty dusty
Them corn tassels need stackin' I got no strenght to tie it
Well sir, he said with his voice calm and quiet

And he was talking to the Lord just like he'd be talking to a friend.
His face was all brown and wrinkled from the sun and the wind
I saw an old farmer in the field that he just sowed
While resting the other evening by the side of the road
