"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

'Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door
Oh, hard times, come again no more

While we seek mirth and beauty and music light 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

'Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door
Oh, hard times, come again no more

There's pale drooping maiden who toils her life away
With a worn out heart, whose better days are over
Though her voice it would be merry, 't is sighing all the day
Oh, hard times, come again no more

'Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door
Oh, hard times, come again no more

'Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered all around my cabin door
Oh, hard times, come again no more"

Original lyrics--Stephen Foster
-Bob Dylan from his Good as I Been to You-1992

    What Susan said... This reminds me so much of an old truck that sat on my great-grandmother's property when I was a little kid in the early 50s. My brothers and I learned to shift gears in that old derelict heap@q

    Brother can you spare a dime? This pic looks like it's taken right out of the 30s! Great shot, William!

    Bill, I immediately thought of that old Civil War ballad when I saw the title, and then . . . there it was. I have been singing that song since the late 50s and it is never far away from my thoughts. Bro, it's time to start uploading again.
