It's Hard, Ain't It Hard
Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

G - C -
G D7 G -      (D7 repeat)
8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
It’s hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it hard,
To love one who never did love you.
It’s hard, ain’t it hard, ain’t it real real hard,
To love one who never will be true.
There is a house in this old town,
And that’s where my true love lays around.
She sits down upon another’s knee,
And tells him what she never will tell me.

Don’t go drinkin’ and gamblin’,
Don’t go there your sorrows for to drown.
This hard liquor place is a low down disgrace,
It’s the meanest darn place in this town.
Listen to Eric Weissberg play "Hard Ain't It Hard" (mp3)
