Hard Time Blues

Scott Anderson

Am††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††† Am††††††††††††††† C††††††††† F

Times are hard all around; I canít get my feet on solid ground

††† D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††† ††C

I picked up that shovel and I moved that old steam powered train

Am†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

All of the years that I worked on the line, lord

††††††††††† Am†††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††† F

Youíd think by now Iíd have a dollar or a dime

D††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††F†††††††††††††††††† G††††† C

Iím just as poor as when I started at the A W T

††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††† F††† Em†† Am

††††††††† Iíve got the hard time blues

††††††††† †††††††††††††††††F††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††† F††††† †††††††††††D

††††††††† From the empty in my pockets to the holes in my shoes

††††††††† F††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† C†††††† (Am††† F†††††††††† G††††††††††††† C†† )

††††††††† Iíve got the hard time blues††††† (Iíve got the hard time blues)

 

<BREAK> verse

 

Am††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††C

High lonesome sound of the boxcars at night

Am††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††† F

Cutting through the pines on the Georgia countryside

D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††† G††††† C

Iíll ride the flagman until the day they bury me

Am†††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††† C††††††††† F

Times are hard all around; I canít get my feet on solid ground

†† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† ††††C

I picked up that shovel and I moved that old steam powered train
