Thirty Years of Farming 
Recorded by James King
Written by Fred Eaglesmith

G
There's a little white note on a gate by the road
C G
That a man put up yesterday

And when we saw it we all ran out
A7 D7
Just to see what it had to say

G
And when we read it our eyes filled with tears
C G
And they fell to the cold hard clay

Something 'bout a mortgage

Something 'bout foreclosure
D7 G
Something 'bout failing to pay


Oh and on the post by the general store
C G
They've put up a little sign

An auction sale day after tomorrow
A7 D7
At the end of the Lincoln Line

G
Thirty years of farming thirty years of heartache
C G
Thirty years of day to day

Oh my daddy stopped talking

The day the farm was auctioned
D7 G
There was nothing left to say


Oh my momma's tears fell freely down
C G
As she walked amongst the flowers in the yard

And every number the auctioneer called
A7 D7
Was like a blow to her precious heart

G
And every number the auctioneer called
C G
Meant another thing was sold that day

While everything was auctioned

And we stood there watching
D7 G
As they loaded it and drove it away

Repeat #3,4


At the day's first dawning we awoke this morning
C G
There was nothing for us to do

Nothing in the granary No hay in the meadow
A7 D7
No cattle no tractor no tools

G
So we loaded up the car

With the clothes that we wore
C G
And the few things we managed to save

Momma read from the Book

We took one last look
D7 G
And then we drove away

Repeat #3,4
