Top 10 Tractor Songs

Songs about tractors are the newest staple in country music

By

Jason Aldean's "Big Green Tractor" isn't the only tractor song to have hit it big. Indeed, country songs about the sluggish, but rather useful, piece of farming gear have proliferated over the years. With tunes like these, it's no surprise why.

How do you know when your love is true? A sure-fire sign is when the girl does a wheelie on a tractor.

Make a list of things that make you nostalgic for home. You're sure to find mom, dad, grandma. Now cross them all out. What's left? Tractors.

Tractor Song Lyrics:
"People always ask me after every show, of all the places that you've ever been, what's your favorite place to go. It's that last half mile of dirt road, and that oak tree on the hill, to those dogs out barkin' in the yard... and that tractor in the field."

From the album Get Right with the Man

There's no better way to express your love than by writing it in the long-lasting color of your favorite brand of tractor. But you already knew that.

John Deere isn't the only name in the tractor game. Craig Morgan gives International Harvester a namecheck in this song that extols the virtues of off-brand country living.

"This big-wheeled wide load ain't goin' any faster. So just smile and wave and tip your hat, to the man up on the tractor."

Tractor love isn't solely a male affair. Lianna Rose proves it with this upbeat song about a woman who takes her ex-husband's dearest possession, his tractor. By song's end, the rascal swipes it back.

Tractor Song Lyrics:
"You can take the chooks. You can take the fat cat. You can take the dog. I don't give a rat's -- I want my tractor back!"

4. "Friends with Tractors" - Rodney Atkins

Who needs the bright lights of Hollywood -- or the pleasures of fine dining -- when you have down-to-earth friends who don't mind driving through life at under 20 mph? Not Rodney Atkins.

"They’ll grow your groceries, haul a load. Pull you out then fix the road."

Ditch that Jaguar, get a John Deere. As Kenny Chesney affirms, women like a man who knows how to plow.

Tractor Song Lyrics:
"She likes the way it's pullin' while we're tillin' up the land. She's even kind of crazy 'bout my farmer's tan. She's the only one who really understands what gets me: she thinks my tractor's sexy!"

2. "A Man on a Tractor" - Rodney Atkins

The truest way into a woman's heart is through farm machinery, as Jason Aldean tells it. Next time you want to impress someone, ask them if they'd like to see your tractor. Surprisingly effective.

Tractor Song Lyrics:
"And I can take you for a ride on my big green tractor. We can go slow or make it go faster. Down through the woods and out to the pasture. 'Long as I'm with you it really don't matter."

From the album Wide Open
