Down On Penny's Farm Natalie Merchant Song Lyrics

Down On Penny's Farm Lyrics
by Natalie Merchant

Come here ladies and gentleman
listen to my song
play it to you right
but you may think it wrong
may make you mad
but I mean no harm
itís just about the renters
on Pennyís farm
itís a hard time in the country
down on Pennyís farm

go into the fields
and you work all day
deep into the night
but you get no pay
promise you some meat
or a little bucket of lard
itís hard to make a living
on Pennyís farm
itís a hard time in the country
down on Pennyís farm

hear George Penny
heíll be coming into town
with a wagon load of peaches
not a one of them sound
gotta get his money
gotta get a check
pay you for a bushel
but you never get a peck
itís a hard time in the country
down on Pennyís farm

George Pennyís renters
they be coming into town
with their hands in their pockets
and their heads hanging down
go to the merchant
and the merchant heíll say,
ďyour mortgage it is due
and Iím looking for my payĒ
itís a hard time in the country
down on Pennyís farm

deep into his pocket
with a trembling hand,
ďcanít pay you what I owe
but Iíll pay you what I canĒ
down to the merchant
and the merchant make a call
put you on the chain gang
donít pay at all
itís a hard time in the country
down on Pennyís farm
