High climbs the summer sun 
High stands the corn 
And tonight when my work is done 
We will borrow your father's carriage 
We will drink and prepare for marriage 
Soon my darling, soon my darling 

Shilling for the fellow who brings the sheep in 
Shilling for the fellow who milks the herd 
Shilling for the fellow with a wife for keeping 
How can we feed love on a farmboy's wages? 

Deep under winter snow 
Deep lay the lambs 
And tonight by the full moon's glow 
Flask of wine on my feather bedding 
We will drink and prepare for wedding 
Soon my darling, soon my darling 

Shilling for the fellow who brings the sheep in 
Shilling for the fellow who milks the herd 
Shilling for the fellow with a wife for keeping 
How can we feed love on a farmboy's wages? 

People think that I'm no good 
Painting pictures, carving wood 
Be a rich man if I could 
But the only job I do well is here on the farm 
On the farm 
And it's breaking my back 

We will borrow your father's carriage 
We will drink and prepare for marriage 
Soon my darling, soon my darling 

Shilling for the fellow who brings the sheep in 
Shilling for the fellow who milks the herd 
Shilling for the fellow with a wife for keeping 
How can we feed 
Shilling for the fellow who brings the sheep in 
Shilling for the fellow who milks the herd 
Shilling for the fellow with a wife for keeping 
How can we feed love on a farmboy's
Love on a farmboy's
Love on a farmboy's wages
