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
