There's Nothing Soft About Hard Times

This song is by Jimmy Buffett and appears on the album Down To Earth (1970) and on the compilation Before The Beach (1993).

Everyday held a new surprise
I watched the hunger burnin' in my sister's eyes
The pasteboard shack we called a home would haunt me in my dreams
'Cause there's nothing soft about hard times
There's nothing soft about hard times

We never knew anything groovy
A dime meant bread and not a movie
The muscles that control my smile were rarely ever used
'Cause there's nothing soft about hard times
There's nothing soft about hard times

I had to go 'cause I could see
I wasn't meant for poverty
The family ties were broken soon
I went off to find the moon

So I sit on a bench in Jackson Square
I drink my wine and I breathe the midnight air
Tomorrow I'll just hit the streets and bum another dime
'Cause there's nothing soft about hard times
There's nothing soft about hard times

I had to go 'cause I could see
I wasn't meant for poverty
The family ties were broken soon
I went off to find the moon

So I sit on a bench in Jackson Square
I drink my wine and I breathe the midnight air
Tomorrow I'll just hit the streets and bum another dime
'Cause there's nothing soft about hard times
There's nothing soft about hard times

There's nothing soft about, no-no-no-no those hard times
There's nothing soft about hard times
No-no-no those hard times
There's nothing soft about hard times
I'm gonna tell ya about the hard times
There's nothing soft about hard times
