Travis James Humphrey: Listen

Hard TImes; Come Again, No More

(Travis James Humphrey)
Stephen Foster

Hard Times; Come Again, No More

Stephen Foster / arr: TJH

 

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.

 

CHORUS:

It’s the song, the sigh of the weary;

 hard times, hard times, come again no more.

Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;

oh, hard times, come again no more.

I said, hard times, hard times; we’ve seen enough of hard times;

hard times, come again no more.

 

While we seek truth and beauty and love to light our way,

there are frail forms falling at the door.

Though their voices are quiet, their tired eyes do say,

oh, hard times, come again no more.

 

CHORUS

 

SOLO

 

It’s a sigh that is carried across the troubled wave;

it’s a cry that is heard upon the shore.

It’s a prayer that is whispered around the lowly grave;

oh, hard times, come again no more.

 

CHORUS
