The Farmer And The Cowman

 
Oklahoma Soundtrack Musical, 1955
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

The Farmer And The Cowman The farmer and the cowman should be friends.
Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be friends.
One man likes to push a plough, the other likes to chase a cow,
But that's no reason why they cain't be friends.

Territory folks should stick together,
Territory folks should all be pals.
Cowboys dance with farmer's daughters,
Farmers dance with the ranchers' gals. (repeat)

I'd like to say a word for the farmer,
He come out west and made a lot of changes

He come out west and built a lot of fences,

And built 'em right acrost our cattle ranges.

The farmer is a good and thrifty citizen, no matter what the cowman says of things.
You seldom see 'em drinkin' in a bar room

Unless somebody else is buyin drinks.

But the farmer and the cowman should be friends.
Oh, the famer and the cowman should be friends.
The cowman ropes a cow with ease, the farmer steals her butter and cheese, but that's no reason why they can't be friends.

Territory folks should stick together,
Territory folks should all be pals.
Cowboys dance with farmer's daughters,
Farmers dance with the ranchers' gals.

I'd like to say a word for the cowboy, the road he treads is difficult and stoney.
He rides for days on end with jist a pony for a friend.

I sure am feelin' sorry for the pony!

The farmer should be sociable with the cowboy if he rides by and asks for food and water.
Don't treat him like a louse make him welcome in your house.

But be sure that you lock up your wife and daughters!

Territory folks should stick together,
Territory folks should all be pals.
Cowboys dance with farmer's daughters,
Farmers dance with the ranchers' gals.
