Lyrics

Real Hard Times

Jesus wants to see you in a Buick
Buy here, pay here, nothing down but your soul
A '99 LeSabre for the modern day holy roller
To get across town to the pawn shop and hock your gold

Let it roll, let it ride
Its going to be a real hard time, real hard time, real hard times
Testify

A Bible in the hand might win elections
We ain't looking for a handout we just need a hand to play
Brother's serving soup at the mission house every evening
Sister's on the corner nights praying for a better way

Let it roll, let it ride
Its going to be a real hard time, real hard time, real hard times
Testify

Don't you think what's lost can't be found
'Cause some old men can't see on past their nose
We'll all be standing when the walls come tumbling down, down, down
To rise up like the prince in paupers clothes

Darlin' I swear I love you now and ever
People gather 'round cause the man's got some words to say
Through poor and poorer we'll make this little family a strong one
I've got a pistol and a plan and we're waiting on the judgement day

Let it roll, let it ride
Its going to be a real hard time, real hard time, real hard times
Testify, testify, testify, testify
