This is a truly amazing song.
Have fun with it!

Standard Tuning, Capo 2
[Whole Step Up]

The [D] in the intro (and after chorus) is strummed very quickly.
Listen to the song, and you'll figure it out.



Intro:
A,E,A,D,A


Stuart:
                A
Who'll buy my wheat, who'll buy my corn?
             D                   A
To feed my babies when they are born
                                             E
Seeds and dirt, a prayer for rain that I can use.
A
I work the land, I watch the sky
           D              A
I talk to God and wonder why
             F#m          E                     A                 
But it's the only life I know, these farmer's blues.

(chorus)
             E                 
I see the seasons come and go
          D               A
Sending rain, fire, and snow.
                                          E
I'm at the mercy of it all, this life I choose.
              A                  
Sometimes I hang my head and cry
              D                A  
When that evening train comes by.
                 F#m         E                     
I wish it could take me far away
                 A    
These farmer's blues. 

A,E,A,D,A

Haggard:
   A                                 
The tractor's old, the fence is down
           D                  
Put on my suit and go to town.
              A                               E    
I ask for a loan and I know well they might refuse
          A                   
Back at home, still by my side
             D                 A 
The one I love, with worried eyes
         F#m          E                    A     
Waits for me to love away, these farmer's blues.

(Repeat chorus)
