The Lyrics

We are putting a farmer's market in Downtown Tulsa - this is purely for fun.
When you're alone and life is making you hungry
You can always go - downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know - downtown
Just listen to the farmer when he talks about his maters
He'll tell ya how he grew them and it ain't like his potaters
How can you lose?

The fruits are much better there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, food'll be great when you're
Downtown - no finer place, for sure
Downtown �" farmer's are waiting for you

Come hang around and let our flowers surround you
There are sunflowers too - downtown
Maybe you need a little pint of blackberries
And a recipe or two - downtown
Just listen to farmer as she tells you how to cook it
You'll be eating like a king and there's nothing really to it
Happy again

The foods are much better there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the foods are great
Downtown - waiting for you today
Downtown �" now you're eating ok

[Instrumental break]

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and has a gentle hand to
Help you along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, food'll be great when you're
Downtown - don't wait a minute for
Downtown - farmers's waiting for you

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown ...
Now I need just the instrumentals - this would be fun to have the farmer's sing this - hand out the lyrics. Site name
