Tom T. Hall – Too Many Do-Goods lyrics

We got too many do goods and not enough hard working men
We got too many hands out and not enough lendin' a hand
We got too many thinkers looking for the answer in the wind
Hey we got too many do goods and not enough hard working men

We got poets and prophets and some folks are readin' the stars
If we'd look a little closer to home we might find who we are
We got all kinds of sermons in booklets and pamphlets on sin
Hey we got too many do goods and not enough hard working men
We got too many do goods...

We got clubs and committees who know all about wrong and right
Oh but I've seen some children who starved plumb to death on advice
I appreciate your sympathy and I believe in missionary work
But a little bit of bendin' down and pickin' up your brother wouldn't hurt
We got too many do goods...
