Hard Times

This song is by Emmylou Harris and The Nash Ramblers and appears on the live album At The Ryman (1992) and on the box set Portraits (1996) by Emmylou Harris.

Let us pause in life's pleasures and count her many tears
While we all sup sorrow with the poor
There's a song that will linger forever in our ears
Oh hard times come again no more.

It's a song the sigh of the weary hard times
Hard times come again no more
Many days you have lingered all around my door
Oh, hard times come again no more.

Though we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay
There are frail forms fainting at the door
Though their voices are silent their pleading looks will say
Oh hard times come again no more.

It's a song the sigh of the weary hard times
Hard times come again no more
Many days you have lingered all around my door
Oh, hard times come again no more.

There's a pale young maiden who foils her life away
With a worn out heart whose better days are o'er
Though her voice it would be singing it's sighing all the day
Oh hard times come again no more.

It's a song the sigh of the weary hard times
Hard times come again no more
Many days you have lingered all around my door
Oh, hard times come again no more.

Oh, hard times come again no more...
