THE FAMILY BIBLE AND THE FARMER'S ALMANAC

Randy Travis

My father's father was the wisest man I ever knew

Sixty years of education

Seven years of school

Farming kept his body strong

At night the only books he owned

Kept his mind sharp as a tack

The family bible and the farmer's almanac


When to plant

When to harvest

How you weed just what you sow

When to look for rain and who to turn to when it don't

There was a plan for defrost

Salvation for the lost

Words to live and die by front to back

The family bible and the farmer's almanac


One came from his mother

Handed down the day she died

The co-op sent the other

Every year at Christmas time

He knew the seasons to the day

Knew Paul and Peter by first name

He could answer any question he was asked

With the family bible and the farmer's almanac


When to plant

When to harvest

How you weed just what you sow

When to look for rain and who to turn to when it don't

There was a plan for defrost

Salvation for the lost

Words to live and die by front to back

The family bible and the farmer's almanac


He knew the way to get

Through this life to the next

While others spoke of faith

He found the facts

In the family bible and the farmer's almanac

The family bible and the farmer's almanac
