Description: Cover of Sheet Music for "A Plowing Song: 4 H Club Song for Boys," words by Fannie R. Buchanan and Music by Rena M. Parish. Song lyrics read: "A growing day, and a waking field, And a furrow straight and long, A golden sun, and a lifting breeze, And we follow with a song. Sons of the soil are we, Lads of the field and flock, Turning our sods, asking no odds, Where is a life so free? Sons of the soil are we, Men of the coming years, Facing the darn, Brain ruling brawn, Lords of our lands we'll be. A guiding tho't, and a skillful hand, And a plants young leaf unfurled, A summers sun, and a summers rain, And we harvest for the world."
