By The Sweat Of My Brow
Recorded by Hank Locklin
Written by Jack Rhodes

C C7 F
I’m making my living by the sweat of my brow
G7 F C
I couldn’t be crooked cause I don’t know how
C7 F
I’ve lived in a shack and I’ve lived from a can
G7 F C
Making a fortune for some other man

G7 F C
I learned early in life and I hold no regrets
G7 F C
Anything that’s worth having is worth working to get
C7 F
I’ve lived by this rule and I’ve got by till now
G7 F C
A making my living by the sweat of my brow

C7 F
I picked cotton all day till my back ached with pain
G7 F C
I’ve drilled for oil in the cold freezing rain
C7 F
I’ve walked many miles behind another man’s plow
G7 F C
Making my living by the sweat of my brow

G7 F C
Rich kids throw big parties drive new cars while mine
G7 F C
Wear mail order clothes that I pay for on time
C7 F
I’ve worked hard and stayed honest and I’ve got by till now
G7 F C
A making my living by the sweat of my brow
