Ode to an Old Farm Girl

Oh the brand new is spanky and starts up real quick

Supposedly rarely in need of a fix

But the old’s not so bad, it feels good to drive

She might not be perfect but she does alright


I like my things real like the Velveteen rabbit

The old girl’s the one until she says she’s had it.

The husband, he dreams of snow blowing machines

But me, I’m in love with this tractor

    Ours was a FarmAll, and was a real workhorse. Good to see you have a roll bar on it. That’s the only disadvantage to those tractors. It made my day to see the wonderful picture – and the snow! :-)
