Farming is Real

I heard a new country song called "Real" by James Wesley on the radio talking about reality shows and what is actually real. Some of the lyrics did a good job of describing the reality of life as a farmer or rancher and I thought I'd share them with you.

"Real, like too much rain falling from the sky
Real, like the drought that came around here last July
It’s the damn old weevils and the market and the weeds
The prayer they prayed when they plant the seeds
And the chance they take to bring us our next meal
I call that real."

You can listen to the whole song here:
