Song Rating: 9.81/10

Song lyrics:

Thinking back, when I was a kid
Doin all the things my granddad did
Never thought itd be this hard to fill his shoes
All that wisdom under granddads hat
Wishing like hell Id remember all that
Learned everything I know from that old man
Before he died he gave me the keys and said
Son, this is how youll remember me

When you fire up the tractor and roll in the hay
Light up a bonfire at the end of the day
Take another sip from mamas mason jar
I aint scared to work, thats how I was raised
Live by the Bible and taught how to pray
Sow my crops where the river meets the sky
Im a F.A.R.M.B.O.Y.

That old road is now black top
It cuts right through where we sow our crops
That rusted windmill stopped turning the other day
And that farmhouse granddad built with his hands
Still stands strong on this old farm land


Its roots run deep, theyre forever here to stay
Still got the barn and its got the plow
Granddad always said thats what his life is all about

When I fire up the tractor and roll in the hay
Light up a bonfire at the end of the day
Taking a sip from mamas mason jar
I aint scared to work, thats how I was raised
Live by the Bible and taught how to pray
Sow my crops where the river meets the sky
Im a F.A.R.M.B.O.Y.

I still fire up the tractor and roll in the hay
Light up the bonfire at the end of the day
I take a sip from my mamas mason jar
Yeah, I aint scared of the world, thats how I was raised
Live by the Bible and taught how to pray
Sow my crops where the river meets the sky
Im a F.A.R.M.B.O.Y.

Yeah, Im a farmboy till the day that I die
