The Bread Basket by James F. Higgins


                     'Tis but a short ride..,
                             oh.. the sights you'll see
                     Ay.. a show for all the ages
                             admission.. well it's free
                     Nows the time.. it's rolled around..,
                             our harvest.. it does start
                     Here in the nations mid-west..,
                             this countries good,great heart
                     The corn.. it's standing ready..,
                             so to the wheat.. and beans
                      They've grown up all the summer..,
                             now await the grand machines
                      Work begins at sun up..,
                             ay.. first light of day
                      On until dusk.. we watch them..,
                             in fields the farmers stay
                       'Tis but a short ride..,
                             and the wonders you will see
                        Ay.. this show for all the ages..,
                             and admission.. well.. it's free
