HARD TIMES ┬ęPat Flanakin
Words & Music by Pat Flanakin

VERSE 1 Well there's a lot of ugly rumors
Flyin' ev'ry which way around you
And I've seen you fall
With a blood stain on your back
Well there's a lot of other people
In the world who care about you
And I know one day
You're gonna look back and you'll laugh

CHORUS I know it hurt you bad
When they held your hands behind you
I know they made you eat
The dreams that you once had
Ah, but hard times won't always be around
Hard times will only make you frown
Hard times don't ever let 'em get you down

VERSE 2 Now there's a lot of ugly people
Hangin' ev'ry which way around you
And I know they'd take your place
Given half the chance
So they just kick you around
Try to hold you down and blind you
No, they cannot see
What you see at one glance
