These Hands Lyrics

(Most of my people and the people I knew back home
Made their greatest accomplishments in this life
By hard work with their two bare hands
When a fella has given life a good grind and is lying on his dying bed
With his hands folded crossed his chestbone
Feeling the last pumping of his innard workings
One of his good folks ought to raise up his head a tad
And let him take one fadin' look through his eyes once again at his own two hands
And he ought to be proud in his head if he can say
Concernin' them hands that all their lying by has been laid by proper
And that's a bunch of times I have done somethin' pretty good with 'em)


(Eddie Noack)
© '55 Anne Rachel Music, ASCAP

These hands aren't the hands of a gentleman
These hands are calloused and old
These hands raised a family these hands built a home
Now these hands raised to praise the Lord
These hands won the heart of my loved one
And with hers they were never alone
And if these hands filled their task what more could you ask
For these fingers have worked to the bone
[ horns ]
Now don't try to judge me by what you'd have me be
For my life hasn't been a success
While some people have power and still they grieve
While these hands brought me happiness
Now I'm tired and I'm old ain't got much gold
Maybe things ain't been all that I've planned
But God above hear my plea when it's time to judge me
Take a look at these hard working hands
Take a look at these hard working hands
