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…

Hard Times Song Chords

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 weigh out
I’m gettin’ more aches
Than I’m gainin’ in gold
Whoever said
You could raise you a family
Just a’workin’ your tail 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
If the Lord wants to take me
I’m here for the taking
ause hell’s probably better
Than tryin’ to get by

You can see me on front page
It’ll be out tomorrow
A boy in his twenties
Shot down in his prime
or trying to hold up
A Texaco station
They’ll say I was despereate
They’re probably right

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
