Verse:
    D  G  D          G
One man does his work
    D       G             D   G          
Hes not satisfied not at all
    D  G             D          G
Feels like that hes being used
    D          G         D      G
His self respect starts to fall
    D   G   D                  G
His frustration runs very very high
    D                 G        D      G 
He takes it out on the ones he loves
        D             G              D     G      D
Because its safe (It's safe) and who they gonna tell?
       G              A                     D
And he hates that cold bloodedness that runs inside


Chorus:
D
Oh yes
         G           A              D                     
Its hard times (hard times), for an honest man (honest man)
G         A         D
Very very very hard times
      G           A              D
Hard times (hard times), for an honest man (honest man)
G         A         D
Very very very hard times

[Intro]

Verse:
D     G     D                                   G
Sister (Sister),shes got a lot of pride (lotta pride)
    D        G           D             G 
You can see it when she walks into the room
    D               G          D           G
But shes young (She's young)and shes unaware
    D       G                  D  G      
What a brutal world can do to you
    D   G   D                  G
So she loves a man, who lies like a dog
D       G        D       G 
Tears her little world all apart
   D      G                   D        G   D
So the walls go up for the rest of her days
       G               A              D
And there ain't no man can touch this girls heart


Chorus:
D
Oh yes
         G           A              D                     
Its hard times (hard times), for an honest man (honest man)
G         A         D
Very very very hard times
      G           A              D
Hard times (hard times), for an honest man (honest man)
G         A         D
Very very very hard times


Verse w/Intro

        D           G              D           G
So we walk from the front porch to the back yard
        D            G             D        G
Just to laugh and say hello and say goodbye
         D            G             D             G     D
But some days are hard, like a soldiers steel-toed boots
       G               A                  D
And the rent we pay to stay here gets higher


Chorus:
D
Oh yes
         G           A              D                     
Its hard times (hard times), for an honest man (honest man)
G         A         D
Very very very hard times
      G           A              D
Hard times (hard times), for an honest man (honest man)
G         A         D
Very very very hard times
