Farmer and the Cowman Lyrics
Andrew:
Oh, 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.

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

Farmer:
I'd like to say a word fer the farmer

Eller:
Well, say it!

Farmer:
He come out west and made a lot of changes

Man:
That's right!

Will:
He come out west and built a lot of fences,

Curly:
And built 'em right across our cattle ranges.

Cowboy:
Why don't you dirt strangers go back to Missouri where you belong?

Will:
We got just as much right here!

Farmer:
Shut up!
The farmer a good in criticism
No matter what the cowman says or thinks
You seldom see 'im drinkin' in a bar room

Curly:
Unless someboy else's buyin' drinks

Andrew:
Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be friends,
Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be friends.
The cowman ropes a cow with ease,
The farmer steals her butter and cheese,
That's no reason why they cain't be friends

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

Eller:
I'd to say a word for the cowboy--

Curly:
You would!

Eller:
The road he treads is difficult and stoney
He rides fer days on end
With just a poney fer a friend

Annie:
I sure feelin' sorry fer the poney!

Eller:
The farmer should be sociable with the cowboy
If he rides by an' ask fer food an' water
Don't treat 'im like a louse
Make 'im welcome in your house

Ike:
But be sure that you locked up yo' wife an' daughters

Girls:
Oh, 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.

Eller:
Ain't nobody gonna slug out anythin'. This here is a party!
Break it up ya' two ol' fools. Alright Andrew sing it!
Dum-dah-dee-um-dum-dum!

Andrew:
Oh, the farmer and the cowman should be friends,

All:
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.

Curly:
And when this territory is a state
An' joins the Union jus' like all the others
The farmer, and cowman and the merchant
Mus' all behave theirselves and act like brothers

Eller:
I'd like to teach you all a little sayin'
And learn the words by heart the way you should
I don't say I'm no better than anybody else,
But I'll be damned if I ain't jist as good!

All:
I don't say I'm no better than anybody else,
But I'll be damned if I ain't jist as good!

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