King Harvest Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Corn in the fields
Listen to the rice when the wind blows 'cross the water
King Harvest has surely come
Verse 2
I work for the union 'cause she's so good to me
And I'm bound to come out on top
That's where she said I should be
I will hear every word the boss may say
For he's the one who hands me down my pay
Looks like this time I'm gonna get to stay
I'm a union man, now, all the way
Verse 3
The smell of the leaves,
From the magnolia trees in the meadow
King Harvest has surely come
Verse 4
Dry summer, then comes fall,
Which I depend on most of all
Hey, rainmaker, can't you hear the call?
Please let these crops grow tall
Verse 5
Long enough I've been up on Skid Row
And it's plain to see, I've nothing to show
I'm glad to pay those union dues,
Just don't judge me by my shoes
Verse 6
Scarecrow and a yellow moon,
And pretty soon a carnival on the edge of town
King Harvest has surely come
Verse 7
Last year, this time, wasn't no joke,
My whole barn went up in smoke
Our horse Jethro, well he went mad
And I can't remember things bein' that bad
Verse 8
Then there comes a man with a paper and a pen
Tellin' us our hard times are about to end
And then, if they don't give us what we like
He said, "Men, that's when you gotta go on strike"
Verse 9
Corn in the fields
Listen to the rice when the wind blows 'cross the water
King Harvest has surely come
