Hard Ain’t It Hard

print

First time I seen my true love
He was walkin’ by my door
The last time I saw his false hearted smile
Dead on his coolin’ board

It’s hard and it’s hard ain’t it hard
To love one that never did love you
Hard and it’s hard ain’t it hard great God
To love one that never will be true

There is a house in this old town
That’s where my true love lays around
Takes other women right down on his knee
Tells them a tale that he won’t tell me

Don’t go to drinkin’ and to gambling
Don’t go there your sorrows to down
This hard-liquor place is a low-down disgrace
The meanest damn place in this town
