"Hard, Ain't It Hard" as written by and Woody Guthrie....
Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard? (oh, yes)
To love one who never did love you
Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard, great God?
To love one who never will be true?

Well, there is a house in this old town
And that's where my true love lays around
And she sits down upon another's knee (do tell)
And tells him what she never will tell me

Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard? (oh, yes)
To love one who never did love you
Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard, great God?
To love one who never will be true?

Oh, well, the first time I seen my true love
She was a-standin' by my door
And the last time I seen her false-hearted smile
She was dead on that bar-room floor (Poor girl)

Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard? (oh, yeah)
To love one who never did love you
Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard, great God?
To love one who never will be true?

Well, who's gonna kiss your ruby lips?
Who's gonna hold your little hand?
And who's gonna do, well, you know what!
When I'm down in that promised land? (hey)

Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard? (oh, yeah)
To love one who never did love you
Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard, great God?
To love one who never will be true? (pick it, do it!)

Oh, well, don't go drinkin' and gamblin'
Don't go there your sorrows for to drown
Oh, well, this hard liquor place is a low-down disgrace
It's the meanest damn place in this town

Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard? (oh, yes)
To love one who never did love you
Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard, great God?
To love one who never will be true? (here we go!)

Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard? (oh, yes)
To love one who never did love you
Oh, well, it's hard, ain't it hard, ain't it hard, great God?
To love one who never will be true?
