Hard Country

This song is by Shenandoah and appears on the album The Road Not Taken (1989).

Early to bed and early to rise
Wiping the sleep from my little one’s eyes
Hit the long road and cut ‘em down to size
Take it to market and see what it buys

Hard country, making a living by the sweat of my brow
Hard country, looking at the world from the back of a plow

An honest day’s work for and honest day’s pay
Honestly you know it ain’t a living wage
Sweating in the sun and praying for rain
Supper and sleep and do it all again

Hard country, making a living by the sweat of my brow
Hard country, looking at the world from the back of a plow

Brother took a job in the county seat
Thought he bought a ticket to easy street
Well he got laid off from the factory
Now he’s back on the rolling forty with me

Hard country, making a living by the sweat of my brow
Hard country, looking at the world from the back of a plow

So grab your partner and dosey-doe
Louisiana Hayride’s on the radio
Finally the harvest moon’s a glow
Wouldn’t take mine for any life I know

Hard country, making a living by the sweat of my brow
Hard country, looking at the world from the back of a plow
Hard country, making a living by the sweat of my brow
Hard country, looking at the world from the back of a plow
Hard country, just to make a living by the sweat of my brow
Hard country, looking at the world from the back of a plow
Hard country, hard country
Hard country, making a living by the sweat of my brow
Hard country, looking at the world from the back of a plow
