Thanksgiving 2017

 

As we work tirelessly to get the crop put to bed this fall, all of us here at All American Co-op want to give thanks to our patrons, our employees, our families, and our communities for your business, your commitment, your faith, and your support. During the season of thanks, we are reminded of  a story; told by Jimmy Dean, about a farmer, resting along the side of the road, having a conversation....here is how it goes. Please have a Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at All American Co-op and Progressive Ag Center.

 

Farmer And The Lord by Jimmy Dean

While resting the other evening by the side of the road
I saw an old farmer in the field that he just hold
His face was all brown and wrinkled by the sun and the wind
And he was talking to the Lord just like he'd be talking to a friend

Well he said with his voice calm and quiet
Them corn tassels need sucking I got no strength to tie it
Had no rain in so long that the fields are mighty dusty
And it's been so unbearable hot that the kids were even gettin' fussy

Now that grass down and the pasture it should be knee high
If we could just have a little shower Lord it might keep the cow from going dry
Oh but listen to me talking you'd think I wasn't grateful
Why if you didn't know me so well Lord you'd think I was down right hateful

You'd think I forgot about that new calf that you sent
And the money in the mail that took care of the rent
Mama's cough's better and Johnny's home from the navy
And that good Sunday dinner of hot chicken and dumplings and gravy

And that new preacher you sent us Lord he's sure a fine young man
Why he's just convertin' them sinners to beat the man
Well I guess I'll mosey on home now Lord I won't take no more your time
I guess there's plenty folks here about waitin' to ring your line

Evening to you Lord and watch us over tonight
Don't you worry about us none Lord cause everything is gonna be all right
