Hard times as we go, we know what times will change
I talked to Jesus, Jesus says I'm okay
Pushin' and jumpin', jumpin' the mountain range
And in a railroad, railroad from hell to Maine

While she says she's on her own
I'll be pacin' on the phone
Sneakin' on the stake of clam
Awful sick and tired of the gang

She comes from nothing
Hopin' for a taste of fame
She's got a birthmark
A birthmark the shape of Maine

While she says she's on her own
I'll be pacin' on the phone
Sneakin' on the stake of clam
Awful sick and tired of the gang

And it's cold and it's cold
And it's cold when you're near
Cold when you're near any bottle

Cold and it's cold
And it's cold when you're near
Cold when you're near any bottle

Hard times as we go, we know where times will change
I talk to Jesus, Jesus everyday
(Hard times as we go)
