Could that be a missing or locally known verse to PRECIOUS LORD in the DigiTrad? It fits.

Doc Watson has that on an album, but I don't recall that verse.

Anyway it can be pasted into that tune till you find more of this one. Lots of hymns seem to work that way, amen?

I believe that's from a Hank Snow recording that begins, These hands ain't the hands of a gentleman... I don't find it in the DT.

you all have been batting 1000 for me till this one, surely somebody knows it. its country and western, about a guy, probably a farmer, who hasn't had much time for church and such, but his hads are gnarled and scarred and torn, and he's hoping the lord will appeciate that he's done his best. its mostly about his hands. help? thanks doug

Oh, we haven't failed you yet, just haven't got it done yet! These Hands was written by Eddie Noack, and recorded by Hank Snow on December 13, 1955. The recording is located on Bear Family 15476, disc 2. There have been other recordings as well. Check out these lyrics on Manfred Helfert's pages. I think they are what you are looking for. While you are there, have a look around, he has much of interest on his site.

These Hands (Hank Snow( (I think)

My group "The Muleskinners" won the USAF-wide "Tops in Blue" competition in 1958 with "Company's comin'" and this one.

1st integrated country-western group ever to record for a major label.

These hands aren't the hands of a gentleman
These hands are calloused and old
These hands raised a family, these hands built a home
Now these hands raise, to Praise The Lord.

These hands won the heart of my darling
And with hers they were never alone
If these hands filled their task, then what more could one ask
For these fingers have worked to the bone.

Now don't try to judge me by what you'd like to be
For my life hasn't been a success
Some people have power but still they grieve
While these hands brought me happiness

Now I'm tired nd I'm old and I haven't much gold
Maybe things aint worked out like I planned.
Lord Above, hear my plea
When it's time to judge me,
Take a look at these hard workin' hands


comp-masters take notice:
If I knew how to send singing over these wires I could send you the melody.Perhaps someone out there in The Muddy world could insruct me.

Cranky, I don't think your 'first integrated' claim holds up. Taylor's Kentucky Boys, an ensemble that included Jim Booker on fiddle, recorded for Gennett in 1927. The Georgia Yellow Hammers recorded with Andrew Baxter for Victor also in 1927. Jimmie Davis recorded in 1930 for Victor with a band that included Oscar Woods and Ed Schaffer.
