THE HARD WAY (Frankie Laine / L.G. Sullivan) Frankie Laine - 1962 (The hard way, the hard way) The hard way to get here, the hard way to stay The hard way to work and the hard way to play The hard way, the long way, the rough way, the slow The hard way to get here and the old hard way to go They tell me that I first saw light in 1844 In a wagon in the hills of Tennessee And my mother soon lay dead with an arrow through her head So it started out the old hard way for me The hard way to get here, the hard way to stay The hard way to work and the hard way to play The hard way, the long way, the rough way, the slow The old hard way to get here and the old hard way to go I hunted possum and raccoon to get my share of grub I fought the bear to rob the honey bee When I was only five, that is how I stayed alive Everything's been the old hard way for me I never settled anywhere, ain't never earned no pay A bottle's words is steady company I never learned to ride, all I learned to do was fight Everything has been the old hard way for me The hard way to get here, the hard way to stay The hard way to work and the hard way to play The hard way, the long way, the rough way, the slow The hard way to get here and the old hard way to go That bugle started blowin' back in 1861 I pulled up stakes and volunteered with Lee I marched with old Stonewall, till I met a cannon ball Everything's been the old hard way for me The hard way to get here, the hard way to stay The hard way to work and the hard way to play The hard way, the long way, the rough way, the slow The hard way to get here and the old hard way to go So all good folk who come this way and then look upon this stone Please say a prayer and set my spirit free Won't you help me reach my goal 'cause I'm down here shovelin' coal Everything is still the old hard way for me Everything is still the old hard way for me Everything is still the old hard way for me (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - April 2004)
