Twenty-five years on the farm
Will drain the strength out of
Every loud, shrill false alarm
Now tuned to gentle love.
Through years of hot, dry winds, and through
Years of steady rain,
Fortune has been good to you
In what of worth remains.
For you have kept your first love true
Through much hard work and pain,
Here still to choose again.
