The Farm Auction
Garnet Rogers
This song was written by Enoch Kent who gave it to Garnet Rogers after hearing Garnet and Doug MacArthur perform
a song called 'Break the Law' which protested the increasing practise of bank foreclosures of small, family 
farms.  
'The Farm Auction' is available on Garnet's album 'The Outside Track'.
I learned this from the album, back in the day, and can't swear as to whether or not my interpretation is in 
the same key as the original.  I've heard a more recent version done by Mr. Kent and it is essentially the same 
although the ordering of the lyrics differs slightly.

THE FARM AUCTION

VERSE 1.
D                  A7               G                   D    
A rusting tractor, on the hill, the fence post with the posted bill
     G                 D        A7
That said the sale was on until everything was sold.
D               A7            G                    D  
Bone and silver napkin rings, elastic bands 'round spoons and things,
G            D                        A7
Tiny fingers held the strings of that fiddle in the case.

CHORUS:
    G                D           G          D
The auctioneer comes here today, privacy is on display,
    G              D               A7
The highest bidder takes away, but they can't take it all.

VERSE 2.
D              A7          G               D
Coffee pots we never used, silver frames a little bruised
G                    D                     A7
Around the portraits that amused us in the parlor and the hall.
D             A7                  G                D
Fireglow with favorite songs, and laughter are the things among
G                  D            A7
The memories, that still belong in those empty rooms.

CHORUS:
    G                D           G          D
The auctioneer comes here today, privacy is on display,
    G              D               A7
The highest bidder takes away, but they can't take it all.

VERSE 3.
D                 A7                G                  D
A jar of nails, a box of tacks, the dining chairs with wicker backs,
    G              D                      A7
Are in the garden, piled in stacks, being spotted by the rain,
  D               A7                      G                   D
Remember when the lights were low, we had pies, balloons, and mistletoe.
    G                D                A7
The morning sunlight on the snow, who will buy a broken sleigh?

CHORUS:
    G                D           G          D
The auctioneer comes here today, privacy is on display,
    G              D               A7
The highest bidder takes away, but they can't take it all.
         
VERSE 4.
D                    A7               G                D
The auctioneer comes here today, cars line the street, black and grey,
      G                  D                A7
While children watch the odd display, and others touch the lots
         D                 A7             G                  D
That are numbered with the coloured tags, books and clothing sold in bags,
G                    D                    A7
Bought for learning, bought for rags, and everything must go.

CHORUS:
    G                D           G          D
The auctioneer comes here today, privacy is on display,
    G              D               A7
The highest bidder takes away, but they can't take it all.
