    A farmer travelling with his load
    Picked up a horseshoe on the road,
    And nailed if fast to his barn door,
    That luck might down upon him pour;
    That every blessing known in life
    Might crown his homestead and his wife,
    And never any kind of harm
    Descend upon his growing farm.
