Oats and Wheat and Barley Grow

chorus:
Oats and wheat and barley grow,
Oats and wheat and barley grow,
But not you nor I nor anyone know
How oats and wheat and barley grow.

Verse 1
First the farmer sows his seed,
Then he stands and takes his ease,
And he stamps his feet and clasps his hands,
While the sun shines on the land.
chorus:
Oats and wheat and barley grow,…..etc

verse 2
The seeds sprout up so green and tall,
The ears of corn grow ripe and gold,
And the farmer laughs and he rubs his hands,
And takes his harvester to the land.

chorus:
Oats and wheat and barley grow,…..etc

verse 3
The corn is cut and threshed to grain,
Put in sacks and sent by train,
And the miller grinds them all into fl our,
Sing a song with a mighty roar.
chorus: Oats and wheat and barley grow,…..etc

Adapted from the traditional song “Oats and Beans and Barley Grow” for a programme about the process of bread-making, from the planting of the grain, through the production of fl our, to the baking of the bread itself.
