  1. Hard Times

Lyrics

Hard Times Rick Demers

Penny for your thoughts, nickel for your dime
You can bet your bottom dollar these are hard times
Hard times, hard hard times….

Wolves above the timberline, howling lean and mean
Wall St. to Wyoming so many broken dreams
Some folks see the sky as falling down
Dwell upon your troubles you’ll never find
In the hard times the sun still shines

Vultures circle high above a heartbreak scene
Where good for nothing bankers came, picked it clean
Cut your losses walk away, there’s richness all around
Invest yourself in love, where you will find
In the hard times the sun still shines

Penny for your thoughts, nickel for your dime
You can bet your bottom dollar these are hard times
Hard times, hard hard times…

Snakes will shed their skins snakes they’ll always be
Lay bare a grateful heart, beat back misery
Good advice is priceless here’s mine for a song
Have twice the fun with half as much, you won’t go wrong
Make your own sunshine in the hard times

Penny for your thoughts, nickel for your dime
You can bet your bottom dollar in the hard times
In the hard times ….. the sun still shines
