I was born a farmer’s son, never complained about where I was from
Learned how to work till the job was done, I’ll always be a farmer’s son

I knew it all at twenty one, had me a plan to leave and run
This farmer’s life man I was done, thought I could change a farmer’s son
Them dusty fields, they gave me grit, every ten years the floods would hit
Though boom and bust we learned to live, and through it all I learned to give

Now I know where I’ll end up, back on the land that I love
The fate of my boys is all but done, they’ll always be a farmer’s son
They’ll always be a farmer’s son, they’ll always be a farmer’s son
