My daddy is a farmer
That makes me the farmer's daughter
But it's no joke we're always broke
Can't live on dirt and water
Can't live on dirt and water

We can't plant and we can't grow
We can't reap and we can't sow
Don't own the seed, can't plant our rows
All belongs to Monsanto
It all belongs to Monsanto

Dupont, Dow and Monsanto
We are what we eat
They own the pollen, own the seed
Own us from head to feet
They own the air we breathe

Sister shed her overalls
Put on heels and skirt
City bound she fled the ground
To strike her own pay dirt
To strike her own pay dirt

My brother donned a uniform
To keep us safe from harm
Terror is as terror does
The bank foreclosed our farm
Foreclosed the family farm

Jesse James he robbed the banks
They shot that boy to death
Now the banks are robbing us
We got nothing left
We got nothing left
We got nothing left
