Out At Little Hill Side Farm

You have to plant and water if you want your crops to grow;
But I’m not saying anything you don’t already know

One has to get up early if one wants to beat the sun;
And one must work a long, long day to get all of it done

No matter where you are, no matter what your job or station,
It takes a lot of labor and a life of dedication

For there are hungry mouths to feed, and it’s your work to feed them,
And all must walk the trail where their endeavor haps to lead them

We have to sweat and strain and bleed — it always has been so —
But I’m not saying anything
You don’t already
