Early to sleep and early to rise
Wiping the sleep from my little ones eyes
Hit the long rows and cut em down to size
Take it to market and see what it buys

In the 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 days work for an honest days pay
Honestly you know it aint a living wage
Sweating in the sun and praying for rain
Supper and sleep and do it all again

In the 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 hed bought a ticket to easy street
Well he got laid off from the factory
Now hes back on the lower forty with me

In the 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 do-se-do
Louisiana hayrides on the radio
Finally the harvest moons aglow
Wouldnt trade mine for any life I know

In the hard country
Making a living by the sweat of my brow
Hard country
Looking at the world from the back of a plow
