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.
