This is a truly amazing song.
Have fun with it!

Standard Tuning, Capo 2
[Whole Step Up]

The [D] in the intro (and after chorus) is strummed very quickly.
Listen to the song, and you'll figure it out.


                AWho'll (x02220@1)buy my wheat, who'll buy my corn?
             D (xx0232@1)                 ATo (x02220@1)feed my babies when they are born
                                             ESeeds (022100@1)and dirt, a prayer for rain that I can use.
AI (x02220@1)work the land, I watch the sky
           D (xx0232@1)            AI (x02220@1)talk to God and wonder why
             F#m (244222@1)        E (022100@1)                   A (x02220@1)               
But it's the only life I know, these farmer's blues.

             E (022100@1)               
I see the seasons come and go
          D (xx0232@1)             ASending (x02220@1)rain, fire, and snow.
                                          EI'm (022100@1)at the mercy of it all, this life I choose.
              A (x02220@1)                
Sometimes I hang my head and cry
              D (xx0232@1)              A (x02220@1)
When that evening train comes by.
                 F#m (244222@1)       E (022100@1)                   
I wish it could take me far away
                 A (x02220@1)  
These farmer's blues. 


   A (x02220@1)                               
The tractor's old, the fence is down
           D (xx0232@1)                
Put on my suit and go to town.
              A (x02220@1)                             E (022100@1)  
I ask for a loan and I know well they might refuse
          A (x02220@1)                 
Back at home, still by my side
             D (xx0232@1)               A (x02220@1)The one I love, with worried eyes
         F#m (244222@1)        E (022100@1)                  A (x02220@1)   
Waits for me to love away, these farmer's blues.

(Repeat chorus)
