[Verse 1]

Dm                                        Bb
Tell you a little story and it won't take long
C                                        Dm
'Bout a lazy farmer who wouldn't hoe his corn
Dm                           Bb
The reason why I never could tell
C                         Dm
That young man was always well

[Verse 2]

He planted his corn in the month of June
By July it was up to his eyes
Come September there came a big frost
And all the young man's corn was lost

[Verse 3]

His courtship had just begun
Said young man, "Have you hauled some corn?"
"Well I tried and I tried and I tried in vain,
But I don't believe I raised one grain."

[Verse 4]
Well he went down town to his neighbor's door
Where he had often been before
Sayin "Pretty little miss will you marry me,
Little miss what do you say?"

[Verse 5]

"Why do you come for me to wed?
You can't even make your own cornbread
Single I am and will remain.
A lazy man I won't maintain."

[Verse 6]

He turned his back and walked away
Sayin "Little miss you'll rue the day.
You'll rue the day that you were born
Givin me the devil cause I wouldn't hoe corn."
