Po' Farmer cho: Po' farmer, po' farmer, po' farmer, Dey git all de farmer make. I saw a humble farmer, His back was bended low, He came from pickin' cotton, From off de bottom boll. Up steps de merchant Wid a high-top derby on: "Pay me, pay me, Mister Farmer, For you to me belong." Up sailed another merchant With horses an' buggies fine: "Pay me, pay me, Mister Farmer, For your corn is shorely mine." From Our Singing Country, Lomax RG
