Take care of the farmer
Who raises crops of wheat,
Take care of the farmer
If you folks all want to eat.

"Take Care of the Farmer," Whitey Johns, 1933

Maybe not. I've written to the site owner and asked about lyrics. If/when, I'll post 'em here.

Bad news. The site owner--Craig--wrote back and he hasn't got the lyrics, either. So,

You can hear this recording at The Internet Archive. (Thanks to GUEST,999 for the link.)


TAKE CARE OF THE FARMER
As sung by John I. White* (Romeo 1298, 1930)

There's a man you folks all know. He is fine and true.
He works through the rain and snow to take care of you.
Take care of the farmer who raises crops of wheat.
Take care of the farmer if you folks all want to eat.

He works in the fields all day. His daughter milks the cow.
Take care of the farmer just because he needs you now.
Take care of the farmer, and this is all he begs.
Take care of the farmer or you won't get ham and eggs.

Cows are in the meadow. The pigs are in the pen.
Ev'ry day at five a.m. he starts to work again.
Take care of the farmer who wants to sell his truck.**
Take care of the farmer or we'll all be out o' luck.

Weevils eat his cotton bolls. The crows they eat his corn.
They only leave the mortgage just as sure as you are born.
Take care of the farmer. You'd better do it now.
Take care of the farmer. He's the man behind the plow.

Write down to your congressman—do it right away—
Just a little letter. This is all you have to say:
Take care of the farmer. This means from coast to coast.
Take care of the farmer 'cause he needs your help the most.


[* John I. White also recorded under the names John White, Whitey Johns, Jimmie Price, The Old Sexton, The Lone Star Ranger, and The Lonesome Cowboy.

[** As in "truck farming"]
