I have been blessed with much love and good fortune. While I've had my share of hard times, so many people today are struggling and need to be reminded that they are loved. Allowing myself to feel their pain and remember mine brings me the gift of compassion, and this song.

Lyrics

THESE HARD TIMES
by Walt Dunlop
THESE HARD TIMES, THESE HARD TIMES
GONNA GO OUT AND BUY ME A BOTTLE OF WINE
PEOPLE ON THE STREET SAY, “HOW YOU BEEN?”
I SAY, “FINE. WELL, MAYBE FOR
THESE HARD TIMES

THESE HARD TIMES, THESE HARD TIMES
NOTHING SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY THING THAT’S YOURS AND MINE
I’D FIND THAT FUNNY, BUT FOR THE CRYIN’
OH, THESE HARD TIMES
Chorus
IT’S NOT ‘BOUT THE MONEY, IT’S NOT ‘BOUT BAD LOVE,
NOT ABOUT BEING BORN UNDER A BAD SIGN,
IT’S NOT ABOUT SICKNESS, OR TWO FACED FRIENDS,
IT’S ALL ABOUT WONDERING “WHEN WILL IT END!”

INSTRUMENTAL
REPEAT ABOVE CHORUS

THESE HARD TIMES, THESE HARD TIMES
THINK I’LL SIT ON THE PORCH AND SING “BUDDY CAN YOU SPARE A DIME”
OR MAKE UP EXCUSES, OH WHAT’S THE USE IN TRYIN’
OH THESE HARD TIMES,
THESE HARD TIMES, THESE HARD TIMES
TELL ME YOU LOVE ME, SHOW ME A SIGN
PLEASE LEND ME A HAND, IF YOU’RE SO INCLINED
HELP ME THROUGH THESE HARD TIMES.
