We Sure Got Hard Times
by Barbecue Bob

Got a song to sing you, and it's no excuse
I've got a song to sing you, and it's no excuse
And it sure is the devil, I b'lieve he's got a-loose

You want a drink of liquor, you think it's awful nice
When you want a drink of liquor and you think it's awful nice
You put your hand in your pocket and you ain't got the price

You heard about a job, now you is on your way
You heard about a job, now you is on your way
Twenty mens out for the same job, all in the same old day

Hard times, hard times, we got hard times now
Hard times, hard times, we've sure got hard times now
Just think and think about it, we've got hard times now

You started in moochin', but your mooching's in vain
You started in to moochin', but your mooching's in vain
Be careful with yourself, you'll get a ball and chain

Lard and bacon goin' to a dollar a pound
Well, lard and bacon goin' to a dollar a pound
Cotton has started to sellin', but it keeps goin' down and down

Just before election, you was talkin' how you was going to vote
Just before election, you was talkin' how you was going to vote
And after election was over, your head down like a billy goat

Hard time, hard time, sure got hard time now
Hard time, hard time, we've got hard time now
Once you think and think about it, we've sure got hard times now
