Song Description

Women working on farms are ready to raise some hell when their work is done. They shine up their boots and head out to the Smokin' Moose where they kick it on the dance floor and order doubles. Even pulling into the place they get excited because it is filled with 4X4 trucks. These women are proud of what they do, and the bridge is the telling line - "Our roots run deep like the crops we grow. Yeah, we feed America, row by row by row."

Story Behind the Song

Composer works in agriculture and realizes what fun people she's working with, and she loves to see a parking lot full of 4X4s! She's also tired of country guy songs about women as objects. The women in this song are working hard and partying hard!

Lyrics

FARM TOWN
Words and music by Carlene Thissen & Danni Ri Johnson, 2016

VERSE 1:

When that rooster crows we're up at dawn
Busting our butts 'til the work is done
Shine up the boots, we're gonna' cut loose
And head on down to the Smokin' Moose

Gonna strut our stuff through that swinging door
And kick it on the dance floor

A-and it goes like step, step, turn, shuffle
Bar-tender pour us a double, come on!
We turn on when the night rolls around

CHORUS

In a farm town it's time to get down when the sun drops low behind the hay bales
In a farm town you can hear the sound of the country girls revving up to raise some hell
We're coming from the east, we're coming from the west
Rolling 'cross the fields like a thunderstorm
Just on an old dirt road where the good times roll
Yeah, that's where we can be found
In a Farm Town

VERSE 2:

You can drive a Cadillac or a John Deere tractor
Whatever your ride, baby it don't matter
But nothing else gets me excited more
Than a parking lot full of 4x4's

I said step, step, turn, shuffle
Hey bartender, pour us a double, come on!
We turn on when the night rolls around

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Our roots run deep like the crops we grow
Yeah we feed America row by row by row, woa hoo hoo hoah

FINAL CHORUS:

In a farm town it's time to get down when the sun drops low behind the hay bales
In a farm town you can hear the sound of the country girls revving up to raise some hell
We're coming from the east, we're coming from the west
Rolling 'cross the fields like a thunderstorm
Just on an old dirt road where the good times roll
Yeah, that's where we can be found
In a Farm Town
in a farm town (those city folks don't know)
in a farm town (yeah, that's how we roll)
hey, in a farm town
