Guitar chords with lyrics
tabbed by: CYGUITARS capo on 2nd fret, standard tuning. Enjoy!
C majorC While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay, C majorC There are frail forms fainting at the door. C majorC Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say, C majorC Oh, hard times, come again no more. C majorC There's the song, the sigh of the weary. C majorC Hard times, hard times, come again no more. C majorC Many days you have lingered on around my cabin door. C majorC Oh, hard times, come again no more. [Verse 1] C majorC He was an Odessa boy with a daddy in the money FF he played for Mojo back in the boom FF drove a Corvette took what he wanted from people A minorAm they learned to give him lots of room
[Chorus] C majorC Well he never learned to work FF but that never really mattered G+G because the dark crude flowed A minorAm the wild oats scattered C majorC the dark, crude, it flowed G+G He fought, he flattered FF and he got what he wanted A minorAm it was the only thing that mattered [Verse 2] Well life was easy and the big jacks pumped pooring cash from the permian field There were cabinets full of high grade scotch garage, full of high speed steel [Chorus] [Verse 3] Then he killed a girl when he rolled the Corvette Daddy's money made the lawyers go away his mother bought vodka with all that cash she kind of knew, yeah she kind of knew Well he's an old man now lives on his dead Daddy's place never took a wife, gunna die without a trace you see he loved the girl who was pinned in the 'vette he talkes to her everyday her face face was blood and diamonds he remembers her, that way. [Chorus] [Outro](same chords as Intro) There's a pale droopy maiden who toiled her life away With a worn heart, whose better days are o'er. Though her voice it would be merry, 'tis sighin' all the day, Oh, hard times, come again no more.
