I'm thankful for this old farm,
thankful that the house is warm.
I'm thankful I have boots to wear,
'cause the snow's getting deep out there.
Thankful for shelter from the winds,
and very thankful for all my friends.
I'm thankful for all the rain,
and the crops that it will bring.
Thankful I'm able to plow the ground,
thankful for the spring time sound.
Thankful my garden flourished today,
and thankful for the fields of hay.
Thankful I live in a land that's free,
and thankful for this I'll always be.
Thankful for shade from the trees,
and for the steady blowing breeze.
Thankful that I'm still doing fine,
and able to work this land of mine.
Thankful for each coming morn,
and for a crib filled with corn.
I'm thankful for my food each day,
and blessings the Lord sends my way.
Now the end of December is very near,
and I thank the Lord for another year.
