  • The king may rule over land and sea,

  • The lord may live right royally,

  • The soldier ride in pomp and pride,

  • The sailor roam over ocean wide;

  • But this or that, whatever befall,

  • The farmer he must feed them all.

  • The writer thinks, the poet sings,

  • The craftsmen fashion wondrous things,

  • The doctor heals, the lawyer pleads,

  • The miner follows the precious leads;

  • But this or that, whatever befall,

  • The farmer he must feed them all.

  • The merchant he may buy and sell,

  • The teacher do his duty well,

  • But men may toil through busy days,

  • Or men may stroll through pleasant ways;

  • From king to beggar, whatever befall,

  • The farmer he must feed them all.

  • The farmer's trade is one of worth,

  • He's partner with the sky and earth,

  • He's partner with the sun and rain,

  • And no man loses for his gain;

  • And men may rise, or men may fall,

  • But the farmer he must feed them all.

  • God bless the man who sows the wheat,

  • Who finds us milk and fruit and meat,

  • May his purse be heavy, his heart be light,

  • His cattle and corn and all go right;

  • God bless the seeds his hands let fall,

  • For the farmer he must feed us all.

The king may rule over land and sea,
