There's a rusty old windmill
Out standing on the plain
The only salvation to the land
Where there was little rain.
Pumping up life-saving water
From a fan ruggedly finned
With gears and rods working
They faced the blowing winds.
They had names like Eclipses
Dempsters and Aermoters
Some were wood, most were steel
But all had wind-driven rotors.
No, it wasn't the six-shooter
That tamed the wild west
But the lonely old windmill
That served the farmer-rancher best.
