  • Some people say he's a wealthy man
    But he built his house with his own two hands
    On a piece of land that's as far as you can see

    They call him lucky, but they don't know
    He's up and running when the rooster crows
    And he's still in the fields with his supper cold
    But if you ask me,

    It's a hard hard way to make your way
    In a world that don't care what you pay,
    What you earn or what you take,
    Or how much you're not giving
    Life's a tough old row to hoe,
    Trust in God with the seeds you sow,
    And always know it's a hard hard way of making easy living

    His flatbed it was shiny and new back in 1992
    It's been a few since he had 'im a year like that
    He ain't got time to complain,
    Hay on the ground and it looks like rain and,
    Pray it ain't like the twister that came back in '88 and laid everything flat

    It's a hard hard way to make your way
    In a world that don't care what you pay,
    What you earn or what you take,
    Or how much you're not giving
    Life's a tough old row to hoe,
    Trust in God with the seeds you sow,
    And always know it's a hard hard way of making easy living

    They take for granted for what he's planted in that stubborn ground,
    But the cattle and the cotton know that they don't know in town

    It's a hard hard way to make your way
    In a world that don't care what you pay,
    What you earn or what you take,
    Or how much you're not giving
    Life's a tough old row to hoe,
    Trust in God with the seeds you sow,
    And always know it's a hard hard way of making easy living

    Makin' easy living,
    Making easy living. Writer/s: BOBBY OLEN PINSON, TOBY KEITH COVEL
