(Lee Thomas Miller/Bob Regan)

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
Kepted his mind sharp as a tack
The family bible and the farmer's almanac

When to plant
When to havest
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 early frost
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 christmastime
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 havest
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 early frost
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
