Farmer's Almanac Lyrics - Johnny Cash

Review The Song (0)



Well, the farmer prayed for a better year,
And the crops were good, for the Lord did hear...
But, his barn burned down with winter near,
the Answer came in white and black,
In the Farmers' Almanac, it says....
"If a man can have half his wishes, he can double his trouble."

A sweet old lady was 84,
When her kinfolks came for a month, or more.
Now, from overwork, she's on the other shore,
Much too late, she said, "Now you all come back."
And, it says in the Farmers' Almanac,
"Visitors, and fish, smell after 3 days."

Our leader was a silver toungued man,
he deceived the people of the land,
and when he got caught,
he couldn't stand.

It's a little of beat, and a little off track,
but, it says in the Farmers' Almanac,
"In rivers and bad government, the lightest things float to the top."

Rod said, "I don't believe in God."
Rod died, and now he lays beneath the sod,
For God did not believe in Rod.
Life is a trouble and a weary track,
but, it says in the Farmers' Almanac,
"Feed your faith, and your doubts will starve to death."

The little boy followed the honey bee,
and it went straight to the honey's tree.
He got stung, but got the honey free..
"Consolation for the things you lack.",
is in the Farmers' Almanac,
it also says,
"God gave us the darkness, so we can see the stars."

He came home, three hours late, from work,
He said, "I had a flat, and I fell in the dirt."
She said, "Well, you have lipstick on your shirt."
Well, it turned out like Jill and Jack...
And, it says in the Farmers' Almanac,
"Lies have to be covered up... Truth can run around naked."

He said, "Honey, you know I'm true. I just look at other women, that's all I do."
Then, she caught him with her best friend, Peggy Sue.
Sometimes, some women DO look back,
and it says in the Farmers' Almanac,
"There is a LOT of difference, between shopping and shoplifting."

I sat down at a shoeshine stand,
I had a very slow shoe-shine man.
I said, "You sure don't pop that rag, like some of them can..."
He looked at me, and answered right back..
"It says in the Farmers' Almanac,
"The trouble with the world today, is there is too much 'popping' and not enough 'shining'."

My father's father was the wisest man I ever knew,
Sixty years of education,
Seven years of school.
Farming kept his body strong,
At night the only books he owned
Kepted his mind sharp as a tack.
The family bible and the Farmers' almanac.

When to plant.
When to harvest.
How you weed, just what you sow.
When to look for rain, and who to turn to when it don't.
There was a plan for early frost,
Salvation for the lost.
Words to live and die by front to back.
The family bible and the Farmers' Almanac.

One came from his mother,
Handed down the day she died.
The co-op sent the other,
Every year at Christmas time.
He knew the seasons to the day.
Knew Paul and Peter by first name.
He could answer any question he was asked,
With the family bible and the Farmers' Almanac.

When to plant,
When to harvest,
How you weed, only what you sow.
When to look for rain, and who to turn to when it don't.
There was a plan for early frost.
Salvation for the lost.
Words to live and die by front to back,
The family bible and the farmers' almanac.

He knew the way to get,
through this life, and to the next.
While others spoke of faith,
He found the facts.
In the family bible and the farmers' almanac.
The family bible and the farmer's almanac.
