Hard times, come again no more

 

Verse 1

Let us pass in life's pleasures
While we are, since sorrow's with the poor;
'Tis a song that will linger for ever in our ears -
'Oh, hard times, come again no more.'

Chorus

'Tis the song, the sigh of the many -
'Oh, hard times, come again no more.'


Verse 2

There's a pale drooping maiden who toiled her life away
With her warm heart, whose better days are o'er,
Though her voice is silent her pleading lips will say -
'Oh, hard times, come again no more.'

Chorus

Verse 3

'Tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave,
'Tis a wail that is heard upon the shore,
'Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lonely grave -
'Oh, hard times, come again no more.'

Chorus
