Peggy Seeger - Sing About These Hard Times

NB Very similar chords and tune to "Down In The River"
...but NOT identical.

No idea if this is the exact key Peggy uses, as I
don't have a recording to work from; I worked it
out from memory soon after hearing her play it
at a gig. But it happens to be an easy key both
for playing on ukulele and also for singing.

Chorus:
F
Sing about these hard times,
C7                   F
Sing all about these hard old times,
F
Sing about these hard times
C7                       C
When will the good times roll?

C7               F
I worked hard, I played my part
Bb                      F
That's what I did right from the start
    C7                         F
But these hard times are gonna break my heart
C7                       C
When will the good times roll?

Chorus

Life gets harder every year
Those with the least have the most to fear
Those with the most just don't care
When will the good times roll?

Chorus

The big corporations got no home
And the men on the Hill got hearts of stone
They worry my life like a dog with a bone
When will the good times roll?

Chorus

They moved my job to Mexico
Where the children slave and the pay is low
How I'm gonna live I just don't know
When will the good times roll? 

Chorus

O, the world is ill divided
Those who work most are the least provided
And when they got a war they want US to fight it
When will the good times roll?

Chorus
