Hard Times Come Again No More  Stephen C. Foster, 1826-1864

"Hard Times" was first published in 1854
Let us [F]pause in life's pleasures and [C]count its many [Dm]tears,
[Bb]While we [F]all sup [C]sorrow with the [F]poor.
There's a [F]song that will linger for-[Bb]ever [C] in our [Dm]ears,
[Bb]Oh, [F]hard times [C]come again no [F]more.
'Tis the [F]song, the sigh of the [Bb]wea--[F]ry,
[F]Hard[Dm7/E]times, [Dm]hard [Am/C]times, [G/B]come again no [C]more.
Many [F]days you have lingered a-[Bb]round my [C]cabin [Dm]door,
[Bb]Oh, [F]hard times, [C]come again no [F]more.
[Bb] [F] [C] [F]
While we [F]seek mirth and beauty and [C]music light and [Dm]gay,
[Bb]There are [F]frail forms fainting [C]at the [F]door.
Though their [F]voices are silent, their [Bb]pleading [C]eyes will [Dm]say,
[Bb]Oh, [F]hard times come a-[C]gain no [F]more.  
Chorus. . . .
There's a [F]pale drooping maiden who [C]toils her life a-[Dm]way,
[Bb]with a [F]worn heart whose better [C]days are [F]o'er.
Though her [F]voice would be merry, 'tis [Bb]sighing [C]all the [Dm]day,
[Bb]oh, [F]hard times come a-[C]gain no [F]more.  
Chorus. . . .
'Tis a [F]sigh that is wafted a-[C]cross the troubled [Dm]wave,
[Bb]'tis a [F]wail that is heard u-[C]pon the [F]shore.
'Tis a [F]dirge that is murmured a-[Bb]round the [C]lowly [Dm]grave,
[Bb]Oh, [F]hard times come a-[C]gain no [F]more.  
Chorus. . . .
