A chord diagramC majorC
While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay,
                        A chord diagramC majorC
There are frail forms fainting at the door.
A chord diagramC majorC
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say,
                 A chord diagramC majorC
Oh, hard times, come again no more.


A chord diagramC majorC
There's the song, the sigh of the weary.
                         A chord diagramC majorC
Hard times, hard times, come again no more.
A chord diagramC majorC
Many days you have lingered on around my cabin door.
                  A chord diagramC majorC
Oh, hard times, come again no more.


[Verse 1]

A chord diagramC majorC
He was an Odessa boy with a daddy in the money
A chord diagramFF
he played for Mojo back in the boom
A chord diagramFF
drove a Corvette took what he wanted from people
                                  A chord diagramA minorAm
they learned to give him lots of room

[Chorus]
A chord diagramC majorC
Well he never learned to work
A chord diagramFF
but that never really mattered
A chord diagramG+G
because the dark crude flowed
A chord diagramA minorAm
the wild oats scattered
A chord diagramC majorC
the dark, crude, it flowed
A chord diagramG+G
He fought, he flattered
A chord diagramFF
and he got what he wanted
A chord diagramA 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.
