Another day, another ray
of sunshine in the fields
Growing things, sometimes growing lean,
Fate can be a bitter pill.
Friends and family come together
To share the joy and yes the pain
And the corn, its out there growin
All it wants is sun and rain.
Today we share the fruits
of the stalk and of the vine
Celebration is as ancient
As the harvest and the tide
Let's raise a flag and a flagon
Join our hands in thanks on high
Sing the praises of the ages
Its still good to be alive.
