Hi Mary,
    I thought I posted these last night, but must have hit "preview reply" instead of posting it, so please excuse if I have duplicated.  I did get the words at church last night as I said. I do want u to know that they did not come from an official church songbook, but rather a binder with a lot of hand-written copied songs, so I am not sure every word is exactly right, but it is what has been handed down over the years and is a beautiful song...This is what I have. Sorry if i have posted 2 copies. hope this helps..God Bless, debbie....and you're right, it does have an awesome message!
   Ole Plowboy

V1  I'm just an ole plow boy
     Working hard in the field
     My crop is salvation
     And the wealth that it yields
     I work for the Master, the King of the skies
     And someday I'm gonna see Him
     When the crops are laid by

Chorus   When the crops are laid by
         And our work here is done
         I wanna see Jesus,
         Hear His voice say, "Well done."
         Then this ole plowboy
         is gonna head for the sky
         You can look for me in glory
         When the crops are laid by

V2    I'll sit down with Jesus
      My Lord and my King
      And we'll talk it all over
      We won't miss one thing
      He'll tell me all about
      The things I dont understand
      When the crops are laid by
      And I'm in Canaan's fair land

Thank you so very much.  I have searched and searched   through song books, and searched the web to no avail.    But" when the time is fully come," it was sent unto me .   This song means so much to me.   THANK YOU AGAIN!
