Hard Times Come Again No More

Stephen C. Foster, 1826-1864

"Hard Times" was first published in 1854
 FCDm
Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears,
 BbFCF
 While we all sup sorrow with the poor.
 FBbCDm
There's a song that will linger for-ever  in our ears,
 BbFCF
 Oh, hard times come again no more.
 FBbF
'Tis the song, the sigh of the wea--ry,
 FDm7/EDmAm/CG/BC
 Hardtimes, hard times, come again no more.
 FBbCDm
Many days you have lingered a-round my cabin door,
 BbFCF
 Oh, hard times, come again no more.
 BbFCF
    
 FCDm
While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay,
 BbFCF
 There are frail forms fainting at the door.
 FBbCDm
Though their voices are silent, their pleading eyes will say,
 BbFCF
 Oh, hard times come a-gain no more.  
Chorus. . . .
 FCDm
There's a pale drooping maiden who toils her life a-way,
 BbFCF
 with a worn heart whose better days are o'er.
 FBbCDm
Though her voice would be merry, 'tis sighing all the day,
 BbFCF
 oh, hard times come a-gain no more.  
Chorus. . . .
 FCDm
'Tis a sigh that is wafted a-cross the troubled wave,
 BbFCF
 'tis a wail that is heard u-pon the shore.
 FBbCDm
'Tis a dirge that is murmured a-round the lowly grave,
 BbFCF
 Oh, hard times come a-gain no more.  
Chorus. . . .
