Well I heard he needed some help on the farm Somebody with a truck and two strong arms Not scared of dirt and willin' to work Till the sun goes down So I pulled up and said I'm your man I could start right now and we shook hands He said the fence needs fixin', The peaches need pickin' And the cows need bringin' round
I was haulin' hay, I was feedin' the hogs And that summer sun had me sweatin' like a dog So I cooled off in the creek Then it was back to work in the daggum heat I was cussin' out loud, thinkin' bout quitin' Lookin' back now I'm sure glad I didn't Cause just when I thought it couldn't get no hotter I caught glimpse of the farmer's daughter
She was just gettin' home from Panama city She was all tanned up and my kinda pretty When her eyes met mine I was thinkin' that I would sure love my job As the days got shorter our talks got longer The kisses got sweeter and the feelings got stronger So we'd hop in the truck and get all tangled up Every chance we got We were down by the river all night long When the sun came up I was sneakin' her home And draggin' my butt to work With the smell of her perfume on my shirt I'd be on the tractor she'd be on my mind With that sun beatin' down on this back of mine Just when I thought it couldn't get no hotter I fell in love with the farmer's daughter We got married last spring Whoa and there ain't no better life for me
I'm still haulin' hay and feedin' the hogs And that summer sun has me sweatin' like a dog So I cool off in the creek And she brings me outta glass of sweet ice tea I'm on the tractor and shes on my mind And I can't wait till its quitin' time And just when I think it can't get no hotter I come home to the farmer's daughter Yeah, the farmer's daughter,
