Grayson Hugh – Hard Life lyrics

Well my daddy
He went down
Down to the mine
At the edge of town
Down to the mountain
In the dark all day
Just to bring home
His meager pay
He's been working all his life
To make the best of it
Sometimes I'd look into his eyes
And see the lightning of the years

Hard life, there must be something to it
Hard life, keep living it
Hard life, are we ever going to see it
That light, before the end of it

Well my mama
You know she taught me
Lessons of life and love
How could she have known
What it would cost her
All those years
She gave to us
So many dreams I know she had
By the wayside
Sometimes I'd look into her eyes
And see the rainbow of her tears

Hard life, must be something to it
Hard life, keep living it
Hard life, are we ever going to see it
That light now

In a land so beautiful
You just can't ever leave
Like a lover, she's so wonderful
But she only makes you grieve

Lonely people never speaking
What they're feeling
It's a tragedy when
Life has lost it's meaning
I want to shake you by the shoulders
Til you're screaming

Hard life, hard life...
