The world is turned upside down, it surely must be true
The way that things are running now proves that to me and you
We're up against it now
There's no use to raise a row
But of all the times I've ever seen
We're sure up against it now
Since the highway's come, they've taxed the farmer down
The road's so slick his team can't travel and he has to walk to town
Since the auto's come, mules and horses won't sell
The farmer's land is mortgaged down and the country's gone to (strum)
A farmer bought him a tractor, he raised quite an alarm
He only broke one little piece and he had to sell his farm
We're up against it now
There's no use to raise a row
But the safest rig I've ever seen
Is a mule and a bull-tongue plough
He once was happy as a lark, but now he's down and out
The auto is the thing they say, that brought this all about
The farmer who's the one we know, on whom we must depend
Is up against it with the rest, with troubles to amend
