Hard, Ain't It Hard (Woody Guthrie) First time I seen my true Iove He was walkin' by my door The last time l seen his false hearted smile He was dead on the barroom floor cho: 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 gamblin', Don't go there your sorrows to drown. This hard-liquor place is a low-down disgrace, The meanest damn place in this town.
