"Hard, Ain't It Hard" as written by and Woody Guthrie....
And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard
To love one that never did love you?
And it's 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
And that's where my true love lays around
And he takes other women right down on his knee
And he tells them a little tale he won't tell me

And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard
To love one that never did love you?
And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard, great God
To love one that never will be true?

Well, don't you go to drinkin' or to gamblin'
Don't go there, your sorrows to drown
That hard-liquor place is a low-down disgrace
It's the meanest old place in this town

And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard
To love one that never did love you?
And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard, great God
To love one that never will be true?

Well, the first time I seen my true love
He was walkin' by my door
The next time I saw his false hearted smile
He was dead on his blue board

And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard
To love one that never did love you?
And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard, great God
To love one that never will be true?

And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard
To love one that never did love you?
And it's hard and it's hard, ain't it hard, great God
To love one that never will be true?
