I’m Just a Farmer, Plain & Simple

I’m just a farmer, plain and simple.

Not of royal birth, but rather a worker of the earth.

I know not of riches, but rather of patches on my britches.

I’m just a farmer, plain and simple.

I know of drought and rain, of pleasure and pain.

I know the good, the bad, the happy and the sad.

I’m a man of emotions,

A man who loves this land and the beauty of its sand.

I’m just a farmer, plain and simple.

I know the spring’s fresh flow and autumn’s golden glow.

Of a new born calf’s hesitation and an eagle’s destination.

I’m just a farmer plain and simple.

I know of tall pines and long waiting lines.

I know the warmth of campfires and the agony of flat tires.

I’m just a farmer, plain and simple.

I’m a man who loves his job

And the life that I live.

I’m Just a farmer, plain and simple.

And I’m a reaper of harvest.

I’m the sower of seeds and I’m the tender of stock.

I’m just a farmer, plain and simple.

I know of planting corn and bailing hay and animals

going astray.

I live in a complex world, but my faith guides me.

I’m just a farmer, plain and simple.

George wished to be cremated and scattered

on the land.

Will be so very Dearly missed by all

Families and Friends
