lyrics

Work Hard Rest Easy

Well, baby, this old house ain’t getting anywhere alone
It’s been sitting years by the wayside, but hey it’s worth a try
Let’s take these bones and make it home
got a love for the left out and cast aside
We’ll live the simple life, but it sure ain’t easy
let’s make some time to pour some whiskey for me and you

These calloused hands may not fit the trend
but will take what we got and will make do and mend
we’ll rebuild this world in the shell of the old days
we’ll work hard and rest easy, that’s our way
oh, we’ll work hard and rest easy, that’s our way

We ain’t looking out for just our own
send ploughmen to the fields of common good
This earth belongs to the tiller
For our work and for our rest, for our dreams and for our health

These calloused hands may not fit the trend
but will take what we got and will make do and mend
we’ll rebuild this world in the shell of the old days
we’ll work hard and rest easy, that’s our way
oh, we’ll work hard and rest easy, that’s our way

we’ve worked our fingers to the bone
we’ll build a foundation from these old stones
we’ll raise these beams and make a home
No need to live or die alone
No need to walk alone

These calloused hands may not fit the trend
but will take what we got and will make do and mend
we’ll rebuild this world in the shell of the old days
we’ll work hard and rest easy, that’s our way
oh, we’ll work hard and rest easy, that’s our way

about

Dylan Rooke Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Singer-songwriter Dylan Rooke experiments with the intersection of folk, rock, and some punk grit. Joining with some old friends who formed the accompanying band Red Coal, together they have overlaid vocal harmonies, modern electric and traditional acoustic instruments, to orchestrate a balance between the dynamics of their songs, bringing with them many anthems to be sung arm in arm. ... more
