Farmer Ferdinand Hudson

 Now it is dawn and a new day is born
 But with a trail of despair
 The new day was shining but many had gone
 Farmer Ferdinand Hudson had lost much more than he'd won
 He sat by a table and cried in his rum
 The cobwebs hung heavy and dreary beside
 All that looked at him could barely decide
 He passed for one day so to sleep in that night
 And early that morning he died

 All that looked at him could barely decide
