Farmers Tan

My skin was always Lilly white, from my toes up to my head.

When the sun shine hit upon me, I glowed like the ghostly dead.

When working in the garden, I wear a straw hat to cover my hair.

The doctor said I should wear sunscreen, to protect my skin so fair.

I toiled happily in the sun, as I hoed and planted my land.

The sun screen sweated all away, now I’m left with a Farmers Tan.
