Recorded by Hank Snow Written by Eddie Noack
[3/4 time]
[C]These hands ain’t the [G7]hands of a [C]gentleman
These hands are [G7]calloused and [C]old
These hands raised a [E7]family these [F]hands built a [C]home
Now these hands raised to [D7]praise the [G7]Lord
These [C]hands won the [G7]heart of my [C]loved one
And with hers they were [G7]never a[C]lone
If these hands filled their [E7]task then what [F]more could one [C]ask
For these fingers have [G7]worked to the [C]bone
Now don’t try to judge [E7]me by what [F]you’d like me [C]be
For my life hasn’t [G7]been much [C]success[G7]
While some [C]people have [E7]power but [F]still they [C]grieve
While these hands brought me [A7]happi[G7]ness
Now I’m [C]tired and I’m [G7]old and I [C]haven'[G7]t muc[C]h gold
Maybe things ain’t been [E7]all that I [F]planned
God above hear my plea when it’s [C]time to [G7]judge [C]me
Take a look at these [G7]hard working [C]hands
God above hear my plea when it’s time to [G7]judge [C]me
Take a look at these [G7]hard working [C]hands[/chordpress]
