Pete Seeger, has a way of presenting songs in their true form. The Smithsonian Folkways created a set of songs about the American industrialization of the 19th century and The Farmer is the Man is included. It is royalty free for anyone who wants to include it in a concert.

Think about those hard working farmers on your next drive through the countryside as the harvest begins. The Farmer is the Man!
