(During the verse the guitar is changing between E and A)

Verse:
One man does his work
Hes not satisfied not at all
Feels like that hes being used
His self respect starts to fall
His frustration
Runnin very very high he takes it out
On the ones he loves, because its safe
And who they gonna tell

       A               B
And he hates that cold-bloodedness
E
That runs inside


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


Verse:
Sister (sister),
Shes got a lot of pride
You can see it when she walks into the room
But shes young (shes young)
And shes unaware      
Of what a brutal world can do to you
So she loves a man
He lies like a dog
Tears her little world all apart
So the walls go up
For the rest of her days
       A               B
And there aint no man can touch this
E
Girls heart


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


Verse:
So we walk
From the front porch to the back yard
Just to laugh and say hello and
Say goodbye
But some days are hard, like a
Soldiers steel-toed boots
       A               B
And the rent we pay to stay here
E
Gets high


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