Mike Ryan’s Blues

(May 29, 2012 at 7:13pm)

He works out on his ranch with the sun beatin’ down

Never dreamed that the day would ever come ’round

He’d ride a different tractor than he had since a kid

But Green & Yeller don’t make ’em like they once did

It’s no fun out in the sun on a broke down macine

Hours spent fixin’ her up and gettin’ her clean

Theses tractors ain’t what granpa loved way back when

He wishes John Deere would just make tractors again

They’re all high tech with Mother Boards, GPS and MP3’s

Air condition sustained cabs but the tillers ain’t free

The metal’s turned to plastic the engine block’s a POS

Fuel injected, aluminum headers, the rearend of the class

It’s no fun out in the sun on a broke down macine

Hour’s spent fixin’ her up and gettin’ her clean

Today’s tractors ain’t what granpa loved way back when

Lord he wishes John Deere would just make tractors again

No fun out in the sun workin’ on a brand new piece of junk

Every other hour’s spent just haveing to slave to fix her up

Lord these tractor’s ain’t what grandpa loved way back then

He simply wishes John Deere would just make tractors again
