      About "Hard Times For An Honest Man"

      Lyrics for John Mellencamp - "Hard Times For An Honest Man"

      One man does his work
      He's not satisfied not at all
      Feels like that he's being used
      His self respect starts to fall
      His frustration
      Running very very high he takes it out
      On the ones he loves, because it's safe
      And who they gonna tell
      And he hates that cold-bloodedness
      That runs inside

      Oh yes
      It's hard times, for an honest man
      Very, very hard times
      Hard times, for an honest man
      Very, very hard times

      Sister,
      She's got a lot of pride
      You can see it when she walks into the room
      But she's young
      And she's unaware
      Of what a brutal world can do to you
      So she loves a man
      He lies like a dog
      Tears her little world all apart
      So the walls go up
      For the rest of her days
      And there ain't no man can touch this
      Girls heart

      Oh yes.
      It's hard times, for an honest man
      Very, very hard times
      Hard times, for an honest man
      Very, very hard times

      So we walk
      From the front porch to the back yard
      Just to laugh and say hello and
      Say goodbye
      But some days are hard, like a
      Soldier's steel-toed boots
      And the rent we pay to stay here
      Gets high

      Oh yes.
      It's hard times, for an honest man
      Very, very hard times
      Hard times, for an honest man
      Very, very hard times
