My Father said thus work I've done tis you my sons I want instead,
I tilled this land I made it green; for my legacy is in these fields,
The Friesian cow a lacting sow,
an extra furrow for the kverneland plough,
a tonne of barley; an acre of wheat,
you grew potatoes, you harvested beet,
the brown pound was earned sound, thus pay a bill, make it go round,
a toss for a Sherwood was hard found at the stack of barley in our town,
No coat or cab na're a silage grab,
you had a job to earn your next few bob.
In seventy seven the flash an steel your new found love a combine appeared
A fork of lightning a flash of frightening took seven of your cattle like an ace or a club,
in sporting love became the hub your famous race horse ran in a three mile trob.
He worked his land in winter and sun,
through many decades;the hard slog ones
changing times days are done the men in vocabulary are written in stone
this fine spring morning with out a warning
Its so lonesome now your gone
