The Farmer Is The Man
American folk song from the 19th century (but still so relevant today!) that was beautifully interpreted by Pete Seeger (rest in peace). The chords displayed here might not be exactly what Seeger plays, this is just the way i've picked it up, and it sounds grand to me! Pete plays in A (capo 2nd fret), the rest is up to you G When the farmer comes to town with his wagon broken down C D G The farmer is the man that feeds 'em all G If you'll only look an' see, I think you will agree C D G That the farmer is the man that feeds 'em all G The farmer is the man The farmer is the man D Lives on credit 'til the fall G Then they take him by the hand And they lead him from the land D C G And the middle man's the one that gets it all G When the lawyer hangs around, and the butcher cuts a pound C D G The farmer is the man that feeds 'em all G And the preacher and the cook, they go strollin' by the brook C D G But the farmer is the man that feeds 'em all G The farmer is the man The farmer is the man D Lives on credit 'til the fall G With the interest rates so high It's a wonder he don't die C D G For the mortgage man's the one that gets it all G When the banker says he's broke, and the merchant's up in smoke C D G They forget that it's the farmer who feeds 'em all G It would put them to the test, if the farmer took a rest C D G Then they'd know that he's the man who feeds 'em all G Well the farmer is the man The farmer is the man D Lives on credit 'til the fall G And his pants are wearin' thin His condition it's a sin C D G He's forgot that he's the man that feeds 'em all
