Farmers Rights

Lyrics by: Rose DeShaw
Gaggle: Kingston
Tune: Onward Christian Soldiers

Let us give foreverThe right to save their seeds
To our nation’s farmers
Wherever they may be
Right to reuse and select
Right to sell & trade
No changes to tradition
That a farmer’s hard work made

Enshrine their rights forever
No restricting seed use
Free & plentiful

V2) Age-old farmer’s custom
Was to save their seeds
Corporate change is seeking
To criminalize the deed
Impeding innovation
Taking over all
Already farmer’s numbers
Are growing very small
