Original song: HONEST REDNECK SWEAT

==================== HONEST REDNECK SWEAT ====================

[Verse 1] It's been another hard workin' day With my neck burned from the sun Out in these fields of the north forty And I know I must work before having fun; I plowed, I planted, and I pulled weeds Looking to the harvest that will come, And now I'm home to my dear family And embrace my wife and daughter and son!

[Chorus] Oh Lord, when it's time for my reward Look at this honest redneck sweat; I may not have been the world's big shot But I tried not to forget That my body and soul were in your hands And I listened hard to your command And I put your love in all I did Even when the world said I'd flipped my lid! And when my sweat fell off my brow I knew for certain that somehow It was going into your eternal book And it showed your love in how it looked And I am not ashamed at all to get All covered with honest redneck sweat!

[Verse 2] And now it's morning on the farm And the cows need to be milked; I saw the paper when I got up And once again someone has bilked Our taxes that came from our toil And spent it all on gambling and filth While we honest rednecks keep pushing on In our jeans to feed those souls in silk!

[Chorus]

[Optional interlude]

[Verse 3] Oh, the sweat it goes all through my clothes And really soaks my cuffs and collar At the odor some folks turn up their nose But my family never complains or hollers -- They know it's the smell of good hard work And an honest man is what it follows And though scarcely broken by those who shirk They never refuse my hard-earned dollars!

[Chorus]

Trying to write a country song that says it how it is. Attaboys or catcalls, go to it. Not been a farmer myself but my redneck cousins were farmers in Kentucky.

Maybe it’s the last one that isn’t gibberish.

Do you have a recording of the song? Hard to judge without an idea of how the tune goes. I’d say the lyrics have merit, but what do I know.

Hain’t thought one up yet. Often I let my co-writer do that.

so why start a thread on something you know but hesitate to recognize if you arent willing to just go there and would rather try to justify in inexperience and then miss one who would willingly lend the hand that you need

Why does an Infidel fan think he can say squat about a Christian song?
