DON’T LEAVE THE FARM, BOYS
-Clare F. Berry- (1871)

Come, boys, I have something to tell you,
Come near, I would whisper it low;
You are thinking of leaving the homestead,
Don’t be in a hurry to go
The city has many attractions,
But think of the vices and sins
When once in the vortex of fashion,
How soon the course downward begins.

[chorus] Don’t be in a hurry to go, don’t go;
Don’t be in a hurry to go, don’t go.
Better risk the old farm a while longer,
Don’t be in a hurry to go.

You talk of the mines in Australia,
They’re wealthy in gold without doubt,
But ah! there is gold in the farm, boys,
If only you’ll shovel it out.
The mercantile trade is a hazard,
The goods are first high and then low,
Better risk the old farm a while longer,
Don’t be in a hurry to go.

The great busy West has inducements,
And so has the busiest mart;
But wealth is not made in a day, boys,
Don’t be in a hurry to start.
The bankers and brokers are wealthy,
They take in their thousands or so.
Ah! think of the frauds and deceptions,
Don’t be in a hurry to go.

The farm is the safest and surest,
The orchards are loaded today;
You’re as free as the air of the mountains,
And monarch of all you survey.
Better stay on the farm a while longer,
Tho’ the profits come in rather slow.
Remember you’ve nothing to risk, boys,
Don’t be in a hurry to go.

You talk of the mines of Australia,
They’ve wealth in red gold, without doubt;
But, ah! there is gold in the farm, boys–
If only you’ll shovel it out.
