Can't believe that "None of the Above"

has mentioned Murray McLauchlin's "Farmer's Song"

a great hit in Canada (# 5 in '76 ?) with pretty basic sentiments married to a workable tune.

"Straw hat and old dirty hanky ---- & face like a shoe thanks for the meal, & the times that were real from a kid from the city to you"

Was that what you were after?
