Hard Time In A Terrible Land

This song is by Ezra Furman & The Harpoons and appears on the album Mysterious Power (2011).

I had a hard time in a terrible land
Waiting for the good Lord to open his hand
But the good Lord's mercy's in high demand
I had a hard time in a terrible land

Well I'm looking for a job but it's hard to find
Adam and Eve ate the fruit of the vine
Well they got theirs, and now I've got mine
And the land is hard and it's a terrible time

I had a hard time in a terrible land
Waiting for the good Lord to open his hand
But the good Lord's mercy's in high demand
I had a hard time in a terrible land

Some people are evil, some people are good
It don't make a difference in a bad neighborhood
You've got rats in the water and bugs in the wood
Listen up, son, you better do what you should

Or you'll have a hard time in a terrible land
Waiting for the good Lord to open his hand
But the good Lord's mercy's in high demand
I had a hard time in a terrible land

Evil to the east, evil to the west
Evil won't let you get a good night's rest
I've got a good heart beating deep down in my chest
I've got faith in God, but I've got to confess

I had a hard time in a terrible land
Waiting for the good Lord to open his hand
But the good Lord's mercy's in high demand
I had a hard time in a terrible land
