14 Cents at the Gate by Phoebe Jay

Verse

Before the morning light sleep is wiped from farmers eyes

Another day of work cries well trod paths black and white lines

Making way to a second home.

Everyday rain or shine the job is there it’s the grind

Milking three times a day flows to the homes like mine.

It’s always been so fine.

 

Chorus

Can you tell me, oh when oh when it happened we made farmers so cheap.

Can you tell me, oh when oh when did we try to make our farmers weak.

Everyone is following like sheep, money is goin  to the companies

I’ve made my choice but can it help.

We need to leave more than just 14 cents at the gate.

 

Verse

Everyone users and everyone loves it makes its way to our homes and coffe mugs,

but struggling to meet ends    with the pressure they’ve  been crushed

what awaits at the shop is not enough

Giving that poor farmer no option but decline.

They’re not even reaching the bottom line.

 

Chorus

Can you tell me, oh when oh when it happened that we made farmers so cheap.

Can you tell me, oh when oh when did we try to make our farmers weak.

Everyone is following like sheep, money is flowing to the companies

I’ve made my choice but can it help.

We need to leave more than just 14 cents at the gate.

 

 

Verse

Caring for the stock morning noon and night regardless of the cost

with more debt rollin on

Common sense should stand up first before company profit drains them all

We need to pay our way and stop the delay of our local milk otherwise it’s not here to stay

Not here to staaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay Not here to staaaaaaaaaay

Oh 14 cents at that gate Not here to staaaaaaaay

Oh 14 cents at the gate

Not here to staaaaaaaaaay

Oh 14 cents at the gate.
