IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS (WHEN TIMES WERE BAD) (Dolly Parton) Dolly Parton Also recorded by: Merle Haggard We'd get up before sun-up to get the work done up We'd work in the fields till the sun had gone down We've stood and we've cried as we have bristly watched A hailstorm a beatin' our crops to the ground We've gone to bed hungry many nights in the past In the good old days when times were bad Chorus: No amount of money could buy from me The memories that I have of then No amount of money could pay me To go back and live through it again I've seen daddy's hands break open and bleed And I've seen him work till he's stiff as a board An I've seen momma layin' in suffer and sickness In need of a doctor we couldn't afford Anything at all was more than we had In the good old days when times were bad We've got up before and found ice on the floor Where the wind would blow snow through the cracks in the wall And I couldn't enjoy then, havin' a boyfriend I had nothing decent to wear at all So I long for a love that I never had In the good old days when times were bad Repeat chorus Tag: In the good old days when times were bad In the good old days when times were bad (Contributed by - June 2007)
