Chris Ledoux - Hard Times guitar chord

Hard Times

By Chris Ledoux

Transcriped by Matt Shanley

D C G D 2x

D C

The ole man stand’s by the loading chute,

G D

he sold his calves today.

D C

He spits in the dust between his boots,

G D

As the semi pulls away.

D C

The slick blue check in his grimy hands,

G D

Shoves down in his coat.

D C

It won't make the payment on the land,

G D

Or pay the interest on the note.

Chorus

C G D

Oh...it's hard, hard times...

Same chords as first verse

He's a young man with a loving wife,

2 children and a home.

Plans to build a better life,

and put a mortgage on his own.

He lost his job when the boom went bust,

Still got bills to pay.

Now he's pickin' up cans in the roadside dust,

She's at the Feed-Rack cafe.

Chorus

C G D

Oh....it's hard, hard times...

Same chords as 2 verse

Now the ole grey banker sits behind his desk,

Beneath a worried frown.

He shuffles through the tangled mess

Of some good folk’s going down

He's known some of 'em for 30 years, and some point the finger of blame.

An' no one sees his tears,

the one who shares his name.

Chorus

C G D

Oh...it's hard, hard times...

C G D

Hm...it's hard, hard times...

D C G D 2x
