The Farmer is the Man That Feeds Them All.

You may talk of all the nobles of the earth, - Of the
men who hold the nation in a thrall. For in this we'll all agree, if you'll
only look and see. The farmer is the man that feeds them all.
Then take him by the hand, all you people of the land stand.
him whatever trouble may befall.
For in this we'll all agree, if you'll only look and see, the
farmer is the man that feeds them all.
