Mary Celestia Parler;
Mrs. Jim Crymes
DeVall's Bluff, Ark.
Reel 202, Item 3
Hard, Hard, But True
Some of these mornings bright and early,
You're going to call my name,
And I'll be gone with some other woman
On that morning train.
Chorus: Hard, hard, but true,
Hard, hard, but true,
Hard, hard in this wide world
To love one who don't love you.
Hand me down my telescope
And the rest of my broadcloth clothes,
And if anyone should come and inquire of me,
Just tell them I just stepped out of doors.
Nine big coaches and and engine,
Running down the line,
Send a telegram just ahead
To bring back that babe of mine.
Rocks in the mountains may divide us,
Many a miles apart,
Some other man may have your company,
But, babe, I will have your heart.
When I am dead and in my coffin,
My friends all standing round,
Someone have a little sympathy,
Let a teardrop fall on the ground.
One more question I have to ask you,
I can hardly see
Why you'll take another man on your knee
And tell him what you won't tell me.
