Hard time's is here
Times are harder

Um, hm-hm-hm
You know that people
But they can't find no heaven

Um, hm-hm-hm

Lord, I'll never get down

Hm, um-hm

Well, you hear me singin'
People, you know these hard times

Hmm, hmm
Hm, hm-hm, oh Lord
You know, you'll say you had money
But these hard times gon' kill you

Umm, hmm
Hm, hm-hm-hm
Hmm, hm-hm-hm
