FARMER'S DAUGHTER (Rory Bourke) Billy Crash Craddock - 1974 The day was hot and it got hotter As the sun came pourin' down My ol' car up and overheated I was twenty-five miles from town I started walkin' down a country road Till I came to the nearest place And there in the yard lookin' sweet as cider Was a girl with a beautiful face She was a farmer's daughter A cool drink of water for a thirsty man Her daddy came out and I said "Sir, can I use your telephone?" He said, "Sorry, son, I'd like to help But a phone I just don't own" Then he laughed and said, "It's a-gettin' late And you'll need a place to stay My daughter here can show you the barn If you don't mind sleepin in hay", hey-hey She was a farmer's daughter A cool drink of water for a thirsty man Then we got to the barn and I heard thunder And the rain began to fall Aw, love that rain on a tin roof It rained so hard the whole night long She couldn't get back at all She was a farmer's daughter Pourin' all that water on a thirsty man Now when I think back to that time It always makes me smile 'Cause when the mornin' came All her daddy could say was, "It sure did rain a lot" And to this day I thank the Lord For the day my car broke down For the farmer's daughter and our three kids They make my world go around She was a farmer's daughter Pourin' all that water on a thirsty man, uh-uh She was a farmer's daughter Still pourin' water on a thirsty man, yeah She was a farmer's daughter Still pourin' water on a thirsty man She was a farmer's daughter .........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2012)
