Hard times is here And everywhere you go Times is harder Than they ever been before And the people are driftin’ From door to door Can't find no heaven And don't care where they go Let me tell you people Just before I go These hard times will kill you Just dry long so And if you hear me singin’ My true lonesome song These hard times can last us So very long, long, long If I ever get off This killin' floor I will never, never, never, never get down So low no more Yeah you say you had money You’d better be sure ‘Cause these hard times Will drive you from door to door Hard times Everywhere you go Times is gettin’ harder Than they ever been before, yeah, yeah, yeah Hard times Everywhere you go Hard, hard, hard, hard, hard, hard, hard times These hard times Everywhere, everywhere you go
