It was on the album "Sunday Morning with Charley Pride" (1976) RCA Victor APL1-1359, reissued as AYL1-3740.

I found some places where the LP was being offered for sale, but no lyrics or playable recordings.

This is what Gene and I have so far. You can see that there are places where we disagree.

Thanks Joe... but I wouldnt necessarily say we disagree.

I just seem to have trouble understanding slurred lyrics.

As I mentioned, I sang the wrong words to a couple of songs for
some 20 years, then one day like a bolt out of the blue, listening
to a recording by a different artist, they came thru loud and clear.

Hi

I've been listening to this song as well for many times. I'm Swiss and I didn't understand some words. Someone from a dictionary-forum helped me and another one by e-mail.

They weren't sure either in the part "but the farmer's land kept growin' ...". Today I searched for words that sound like in the song. So one suggestion from my side is "rich with gain" because the other's don't make too much sense.

I have more suggestions to change your version:

all the crops = smaller crops kept coming ...
when all the land = when all their land was ...
farmer's fate = farmer's faith they didn't understand ...

What do you think about my options?

Thanks,
Thomas

Hello Leeneia

Do you have this song on vinyl?

Did you maybe get the passages that we are all uncertain about? Especially the one about "kept growing rich with ..." I'm still unsure because it just doesn't sound like grain or gain.

I must look to see if I have that record. Recorded on the "Sunday Morning vinyl" eh!
Just might get lucky. Curious as to how it sounds.
Always like Charlie.

Hi Charlie

Thanks for looking for that record. I have several "Sunday Morning" records. I bought them as still sealed via Ebay. Unfortunately they turned out to be quite bad in quality. There were flaws on the surface even though it was sealed. I'm not sure but I think there are a lot of bad pressings around from the earlier days. I'd really like to have a good pressing of this record for I really like all the songs on it.

Actually the pronunciation of Charlie isn't very clear on this record and the voice is too much covered by the instrumental sound.

Thomas

Next Year Finally Came

Once I knew a farmer who reaped little what he sowed
While the neighbors' crops grew prosperous all around
And every year at harvest time this farmer did no good
Smaller crops kept coming from his ground

Chorus
He'd smile and say thank you Lord
We'll do better come next year
I know you have a reason for it all
I'll try a little harder and be thankful for the day
When next year's crops are gathered in the fall

The neighbors saw the times get worse
and couldn't understand
How this humble soul could call himself a man
They would gather round the market place
and brag on their success
This farmer's Faith they didn't understand

Chorus
He'd smile and say thank you Lord
We'll do better come next year
I know you have a reason for it all
I'll try a little harder and be thankful for the day
When next year's crops are gathered in the fall

Then came the day when all their land
was bare and worn-out soil
But the farmer's land kept growing rich with fame
Everything he sowed he reaped in wealthy fertile years
Thanked the Lord that next year finally came

Chorus
He'd just smile and say thank you Lord
We'll do better come next year
I know you have a reason for it all
I'll try a little harder and be thankful for the day
When next year's crops are gathered in the fall

And Thanks the Lord that next year finally came
