Played by Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band in 2013.

Oh the poor old dirt farmer, he's lost lost all his corn
And now where's the money to pay off his loan
He lost all his corn, can't pay off his loan
He lost all his corn

Well the poor old dirt farmer, he only grows stones
He grows then on down till they big enough to roll
He rolls them on down to the tax man in town
He rolls them on down

Now the poor old dirt farmer, he's left all alone
His wife and his children, they've packed up and gone
Packed up and gone, he's left all alone
They've packed up and gone

Well the poor old dirt farmer, how bad he must feel
He fell off his tractor up under the wheel
And now his headis shaped like a tread
But he ain't quite dead

Well the poor old dirt farmer, he can't grow no corn
He can't grow no corn, 'cause he aint got a loan
He ain't got no loan, can't grow no corn
He ain't got no loan
