Lyric for the day
Tell You a little story and it won't take long,
'Bout a lazy farmer who wouldn't hoe his corn.
The reason why I never could tell,
That young man was always well.
He planted his corn in the month of June.
By July it was up to his eyes.
Come September, came a big frost.
And all the young man's corn was lost.
He turned his back and walked away.
Sayin: "Little miss, you'll rue the day.
"You'll rue the day that you were born.
"For givin' me the devil 'cos I wouldn't hoe corn."
Alison Kraus & Union Station - The Boy Who Wouldn't Hoe Corn
Jerry Douglas plays a mean dobro on this track, unbelievable! Sung by Dan Tyminski of Soggy Bottom Boys fame. Bit partial to some Bluegrass and this track does it for me.
About a bloke who does it his way, even though it goes all wrong. Got admire him for trying but his sweetheart don't, she refuses to marry him.
