Hard Times Come No More  Emmylou Harris

[D]Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears
[G]While we [D]all sup [G]sorrow [A]with the [D]poor:
There's a song that will linger forever in our ears;
[G]Oh! [D]Hard Times, [G]come a[A]gain no [D]more.

[D]'Tis the song, the sigh of the [G]wea___[D]ry;
Hard Times, [G]Hard [D]times, [G]come a[A]gain no [E]more:
[E7]Many [D]days you have lingered around my cabin door;
[G]Oh! [D]Hard Times, [G]come a[A]gain no [D]more.

[D]While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay
[G]There are [D]frail forms [G]fainting [A]by the [D]door:
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say
[G]Oh! [D]Hard Times [G]come a[A]gain no [D]more.

[D]There's a pale drooping maiden who toils her life away
[G]With a [D]worn heart whose [G]better [A]days are [D]o'er:

Though her voice would be merry, 'tis sighing all the day
[G]Oh! [D]Hard Times [G]come a[A]gain no [D]more.

[D]'Tis a sign that is wafted across the troubled wave,
[G]'Tis a [D]wail that is [G]heard up[A]on the [D]shore,

'Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
[G]Oh! [D]Hard Times, [G]come a[A]gain no [D]more.
