Black Land Farmer Lyrics By Frankie Miller

    giddyup here boy

    when the lord made me he made a simple man
    not much money andnotmuch land
    he didn’tmake me no banker or legalcharmer
    when the lord made me he made a blackland farmer

    well my hands ain’t smooth my face is rough
    but my heart is warm and my ways ain’t tough
    i guess i’m the luckiest man ever born
    ’cause the lord gave me health and a blackland farm

    breakin’ up the new ground early in the day
    gonna plant cotton i’m gonna plant hay
    i love the smell of sweet breeze blowin’ through the corn
    lord you sure done me right by my blackland farm

    vers 4
    i feel like i’m agettin’ closer to you god
    a plow in the ground and abreakin’ up the sod
    well my mind is at ease and i could do no harm
    lord i owe it all to you and my blackland farm
