LYRICS

Oh the farmer needs the rain
And the farmer needs the heat
Needs it in the proper order
To grow a field of wheat
But when the wind keeps a blowin’
Blowin’ everything away
You can bet your boots the farmer’s gonna pay

Ah, the government is helpful
They tell you what to plant
You take it into town
They turn around and say, “No thanks.”
And then the cops pull you over
Right in front of the bank
Just wanna see if you’ve got
Purple gas in your tank

Well it’s another dry sundown
Navy blue and red
Linda’s out sellin’ Tupperware
And the kids are tuckеd in bed
Ah the radio is cracklin’
And the tractor’s in thе shed
And I’m thinkin’ ’bout some things my father said

He said the farmer needs the rain
And the farmer needs the heat
Needs it in the proper order
To grow a field of wheat
But when the wind keeps a blowin’
Blowin’ everything away
You can bet your boots the farmer’s gonna pay

And then the credit man comes to see you
At the break of day
He might have to take the truck
Cos you can’t pay right away

And you look towards the sky
All your praying in vain
We got a lotta bills to pay
When do we get a break
The farmer needs, the farmer needs the rain
