I hear they're hiring men in Oklahoma
And I've been blessed with two hard working hands
I'll take that job till the mill goes back to working
And we'll make it through the hard times again
Like the preacher said in church last Sunday morning
Oh the Lord does things we may not understand
We both know that he'll take care of his children
If we live every day the best we can
And these hard times will be the closest times we've known
Let's laugh and dream of better days to come
These will be the good old days a little later on
And these hard times will be the closest times we've known

You know that heaven smiles on us and gives us all we need
We've got so much we should be thankful for
Dry your eyes turn out the light let me hold you close
That makes these hard times the closest times we've known
And these hard times will be...
Yes these hard times will be the closest times we've known
