Joel Plaskett - Hard Times lyrics

rate me

Let us pause in life's pleasures & count its many tears

While we all sup sorrow with the poor;

There's a song that will linger foreva in our ears

Oh Hard times come again no more

This the song, the sigh of the weary

Hard Times, hard times, come again no more

Many days you have lingered around my cabin door

Oh hard times come again no more

While we seek mirth & beauty & music light & gay

There are frail forms faintin' at the door;

Though their voices are silent, their pleadin' looks will say

Oh hard times come again no more

There's a pale droopin' maiden who toils her life away

With a worn heart whose better days are over

Though her voice would be merry, this sighin' all the day

Oh hard times come again no more

This a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave,

This a wail that is heard upon the shore,

This a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave

Oh! Hard Times, come again no more
