  • Hard times is here and everywhere you go
    Times are harder than ever been before
    You know that people, they are are driftin' from door to door
    But you can't find no heaven, I don't care where they go

    People, if I ever can get up off of this old hard killin' floor
    Lord, I'll never get down this low no more
    When you hear me singin' this old lonesome song
    People, you know these hard times can last us so long

    You know, you say you had money, you better be sure
    Lord, these hard times gon' kill you, just drag on slow Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
