Hard Times Song Lyrics

I bought a house at the mouth of the holler

A ring at the pawn shop and a crib for the kid

I heard some word, there was work up in Hindman

I’m going tomorrow and hope that there is..

*****

My sweat and my wages they don’t seem to weight out

I’m gettin’ more aches than I’m gainin’ in gold

Whoever said you could raise you a family

Just workin’ your ass off knee deep in coal?

*****

Well, the sign at the church says “I’ll reap what I’m sowin'”

But I ain’t lost sleep, it’ll come in due time

And if the Lord wants to take me, I’m here for the taking

Cause Hell’s probably better than tryin’ to get by…

******

You can see me on the front page

It’ll be out tomorrow

A boy in his 20s, shot down in his prime…

*****

For trying to hold up the Texaco station

They’ll say I was desperate

They’re probably right…
