Hard Times

Stephen Foster
Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears While we all sup sorrow with the poor There's a song that will linger forever in our ears Oh Hard times come again no more. Chorus Tis the song, the sigh of the weary, Hard times, hard times, come again no more Many days you have lingered around my cabin door Oh hard times come again no more. While we seek mirth and beauty and music bright and gay There are frail forms fainting at the door Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say Oh hard times come again no more. Chorus
