Lyrics

I’ve traveled every highway Been down every road Tried doing things my way But all I got was old Been out here a playin’ Since I turned sixteen Got nothing to show no, But these tired ol’ blue jeans But as sure as death and taxes I’ll tell you what I’ve learned There ain’t no hard times comin’ There ain’t no hard times comin’ There ain’t no hard times comin’ Lord They’re already here! They’re already here! I’ve seen hungry in the city, Poor folk workin’ in the fields Just tryin’ to make a livin’ While politicians lie and steal We used to have it good here, Work hard and die free Ain’t no jobs to find now Since they moved them over seas But as sure as death and taxes I’ll tell you what I’ve learned There ain’t no hard times comin’ There ain’t no hard times comin’ There ain’t no hard times comin’ Lord They’re already here! They’re already here! I’ve seen young men leavin’ home To fight in a foreign land While here at our borders The drugs keep pouring in I’ve seen children in the streets Playin’ with knives and guns Doing the occasional drive by, killin’ each other just for fun But as sure as death and taxes I’ll tell you what I’ve learned There ain’t no hard times comin’ There ain’t no hard times comin’ There ain’t no hard times comin’ Lord They’re already here! They’re already here! We’ve lost our way and the phrase, “In God We Trust” Then we sit and pray all day, Somebody comes to save us I’ve traveled every highway Been down every road Searching for an answer But all I hear is I don’t know But as sure as death and taxes I’ll tell you what I’ve learned There ain’t no hard times comin’ There ain’t no hard times comin’ There ain’t no hard times comin’ Lord They’re already here!
