Lyrics

The Farmers Wife aka You Don't Know How It Feels

Written By: Robert Webster & Ward Tolbert

I left him standing in the pouring rain as the floods washed cross his fields.
I said I'm tired of being a farmers wife, I don't think you know how it feels.

To get up each morning at the crack of dawn.
To need a cup of coffee before the coffee's on.
To fix your breakfast and feed your dogs.
I wish you'd treat me like this land you love.

You don't know how it feels.
(Male)
I stood there crying in the pouring rain as the floods washed cross my fields.
Thinking back on all the things she said; I said you don't know how it feels.

To get up each morning early and pray for rain.
Then pass them sandbags forward just to save the grain.
This farm was my father's, father's, never thought I'd see.
The day the bank would have me on my knees

You don't know how it feels.

(Female)
I wish you'd treat me like I was as precious as the land that you toil.
I wish you'd run your fingers through my hair just like you run your hands through that soil.

You don't know how it feels. (Harmony)

I left him crying in the pouring rain as the floods washed cross his fields
You don't know how it feels.
I stood there crying in the pouring rain, as the floods washed cross my fields.
Repeat.
