Hard Times Come Again No More

During the Civil War, a favorite song of Confederate and Union soldiers was Stephen Foster’s “Hard Times Come Again No More.”

The Lyrics for Hard Times Come Again No More:

Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count it’s many tears
While we all sup sorrow with the poor
There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears
Oh hard times come again no more.

This the song the sigh of the weary
Hard times. hard times come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door
Oh hard times come again no more.

While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay
There are frail forms fainting at the door
Though the voices are silent their pleading looks will say
Oh hard times come again no more.

This a sigh that is wafted across the troubled wave
This a wail that is heard upon the shore
This a dirge that is murmured around the lowly grave
Oh hard times come again no more.
