These Hands

Contributor: crozierfam Created : 4 years ago Updated : 4 years ago

When I was growing up Uncle Bert would go to what seemed every funeral in the county, it didn't matter if it was some one in the family who had passed away or if it were some one else. Uncle Bert would get out his guitar and sing "These Hands" He had the most awesome voice. I thought it would be appropriate to include the words to the song here, I bet that if you were ever lucky enough to hear Uncle Bert sing the song that as you read the words you will be able to remember him singing. These Hands These hands ain'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 raised to praise the Lord These hands won the heart of my loved one 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 me to be For my life ain't been much success While some people have power but still they grieve While these hands brought me happiness Now I'm tired and I'm old and I ain't got much gold Maybe things ain't been all that I planned God above hear my plea when it's time to judge me Take a look at these hard working hands (God above hear my plea when it's time to judge me) Take a look at these hard working hands Read more: Hank Snow - These Hands Lyrics | MetroLyrics

Jonas Edward Salk was an American medical researcher and virologist. He discovered and developed one of the first successful polio vaccines.

Bert Dallas Ames was 19 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
