Let us [C]pause in life's pleasures  
And
[F]count its many [C]
tears  
[F]While we [C]all sup [G]sorrow [G7]with the [C]
poor  
There's a
[C]
song that will linger  
For
[F]ever [G]in our [Am]
ears;  
[F]Oh, [C]hard times, [G]come a[G7]gain no [C]more  

Chorus:


'Tis the
[C]song, the sigh of the [F]wea[C]ry  
[C]Hard times, [F]hard [C]
times,  
[D9]Come a[D7]gain no [G]
more  
[G7]Many [C]days you have [C7]ling[Gm]
ered  
[F]around my [G]cabin [Am]
door  
[F]Oh, [C]hard times, [G]come [G7]again no [C]more

While we [C]seek mirth and beauty


And
[F]music light and [C]gay,  
[F]There are [C]frail forms [G]fainting [G7]at the [C]
door  
Though their
[C]
voices are silent,  
Their
[F]pleading [G]looks will [Am]
say  
[F]Oh, [C]hard times, [G]come a[G7]gain no [C]more  

Chorus  

There's [C]pale drooping maiden  
Who
[F]toils her life [C]
away,  
[F]With a [C]worn heart, whose [G]better [G7]days are [C]
o'er  
Though her
[C]
voice would be merry,  
'tis
[F]sighing [G]all the [Am]
day,  
[F]Oh, [C]hard times, [G]come a[G7]gain no [C]more  

Chorus  

'Tis a [C]sigh that is wafted  
A
[F]cross the troubled [C]
wave  
[F]Tis a [C]wail that is [G]heard up[G7]on the [C]
shore  
Tis a
[C]
dirge that is murmured  
A
[F]round the [G]lowly [Am]
grave  
[F]Oh, [C]hard times, [G]come [G7]again no [C]more  

Chorus  

Ending:  
'Tis the
[C]song, the sigh of the [F]wea[C]
ry  
[C]Hard times, [F]hard [C]
times,  
[D9]Come a[D7]gain no [G]
more  
[G7]Many [C]days you have [C7]ling[Gm]
ered  
[F]around my [G]cabin [Am]
door  
[F]Oh, [C]hard times, [G]come [G7]again no [F]more [C]

Not much of a guitar sound here, the video is by Mary Black, Kate & Anna McGarrigle Emmylou Harris, Karen Matheson, Rod Paterson and Rufus Wainwright. The music is mostly a botton accordion and chello but this one is really all about the voice harmonies.
