D C G D 2x
[D]The ole man standÔ??s by the load[C]ing chute,
[G]he sold his calves toda[D]y.
[D]He spits in the dust between [C]his boots,
[G]As the semi pulls away[D].
[D]The slick blue check in his [C]grimy hands,
[G]Shoves down in his coa[D]t.
[D]It won't make the payment [C]on the land,
[G] Or pay the interest on the note[D].
[C]Oh...it's hard[G], hard times.[D]..
Same chords as first verse
He's a young man with a loving wife,
2 children and a home.
Plans to build a better life,
and put a mortgage on his own.
He lost his job when the boom went bust,
Still got bills to pay.
Now he's pickin' up cans in the roadside dust,
She's at the Feed-Rack cafe.
[C]Oh....it's har[G]d, hard tim[D]es...
Same chords as 2 verse
Now the ole grey banker sits behind his desk,
Beneath a worried frown.
He shuffles through the tangled mess
Of some good folkÔ??s going down
He's known some of 'em for 30 years, and some point the finger of blame.
An' no one sees his tears,
the one who shares his name.
[C]Oh...it's hard,[G] hard times.[D]..
[C]Hm...it's hard[G], hard times[D]...
