lyrics

Hard Times Come Again No More
Music and words by 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
O 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
O 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
O hard times come again no more

Tis a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave
Tis a wail that is heard upon the shore
Tis a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
O hard times come again no more
