Do rural Iowa wield an inordinate amount of power in the Presidential nomination process?

    Oh, there's nothing halfway
    About the Iowa way to treat you,
    When we treat you
    Which we may not do at all.
    There's an Iowa kind of special
    Chip-on-the-shoulder attitude.
    We've never been without.
    That we recall.
    We can be cold
    As our falling thermometers in December
    If you ask about our weather in July.
    And we're so by God stubborn
    We could stand touchin' noses
    For a week at a time
    And never see eye-to-eye.
    But what the heck, you're welcome,
    Join us at the picnic.
    You can eat your fill
    Of all the food you bring yourself.
    You really ought to give Iowa a try.
    Provided you are contrary,
    We can be cold
    As our falling thermometer in December
    If you ask about our weather in July.
    And we're so by God stubborn
    We can stand touchin' noses
    For a week at a time
    And never see eye-to-eye.
    But we'll give you our shirt
    And a back to go with it
    If your crops should happen to die.
