lyrics

Have you ever seen a rich man giving it all away?
Ever heard a con-man say that crime don’t pay?
And have you ever seen the poor man’s tears on pay day?
I ain’t never known a cliché that isn’t true
Never heard a blues song that isn’t blue
And I’ve never known a truer love than I have with you

Living through hard times, it’s true
And though there’s good times for the few
Well at least I’m living through these hard times with you

When it’s heating and eating that you can’t afford
And you’re spending your days keeping the wolf from the door
And you wonder exactly what it is that your living for
You got bills on the table that you choose to ignore
You’re putting in the hours for very little reward
You’ll soon be stealing from the plate while you’re praising the Lord

Living through hard times, it’s true
And though there’s good times for the few
Well at least I’m living through these hard times with you

There ain’t nothing but recession showing on the news
Give the anchorman a guitar, he could be playing the blues
Singing about what we once had and what we’ve got to loose

Living through hard times, it’s true
And though there’s good times for the few
Well at least I’m living through these hard times with you
