Hard Times, Good Times

words/music: Mark Melloan

Chorus 1:

Hard times come along in a
life and then they're gone,
so bang the drum, and sing a song
for the hard times

Verse 1:

We sing Auld Lang Syne when the apple falls,
and we raise a cheer, raise a cheer,
We sing Auld Lang Syne when the apple falls,
and we raise a cheer to us,
That's one more revolution through the stars,
Let's make our resolutions from the heart,
We sing Auld Lang Syne when the apple falls,
and we raise a cheer to us

Verse 2:

Some have gone and some have just begun,
but we're all riding time, riding time,
Some have gone and some have just begun,
We're all riding time as one,
Life is both a blessing and a curse,
Things will all get better and get worse,
Some have gone and some have just begun,
We're all riding time as one

Bridge:

Time's a'reaching out,
taking boys and making men,
Time's a lonely girl,
a loveless maker of broken hearts,
She holds a pale green lamp, She's a
hurried rusher of your worried mind,
She drags a long black train of
silent memories, and she's marching on,
She's marching on and on and on, singing

Chorus 2:

Hard times come along in a
life and then they're gone,
so bang the drum, and sing a song
for the hard times, for the hard times

Verse 3:

Hold on tight and do the best you can,
All you need to know, need to know,
Hold on tight and do the best you can,
All you need to know, you already know,
It's not so hard to give when you've got enough,
There's no good way to live
when you're out of love,
Hold on tight and do the best you can,
All you need to know, you already know

Refrain:

She's marching on and on and on and on to
The hard times, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
The good times, oh,
The hard times, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
The good times, oh,
The hard times, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
The good times, oh,
The hard times, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
The good times, oh

Chorus 3:

Good times come along in a
life and then they're gone,
so bang the drum, and sing a song
for the hard times and the good times
