    Lord of the Dance Sydney Carter Intro: [F] I [F] danced in the morning when the world was young

    I [C] danced in the moon and the stars and the sun I [F] came down from heaven and I danced on the earth At [C] Bethlehem I [F] had my birth

    Chorus: [F] Dance, dance, wherever you may be I am the lord of the [C] dance, said he

    And I [F] lead you all, wherever you may be And I [C] lead you all in the [F] dance, said he

    I [F] danced for the scribes and the Pharisees They [C] wouldn't dance, they wouldn't follow me I [F] danced for the fishermen James and John

    They [C] came with me so the [F] dance went on

    I [F] danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame The [C] holy people said it was a shame They [F] ripped, they stripped, they hung me high [C] Left me there on the [F] cross to die

    I [F] danced on a Friday when the world turned black It's [C] hard to dance with the devil on your back They [F] buried my body, they thought I was gone But [C] I am the dance, and the [F] dance goes on [F] They cut me down and I leapt up high [C] I am the life that will never, never die

    I'll [F] live in you if you'll live in me

    [C] I am the Lord of the [F] dance, said he

    Hard Times Steven Foster

    Let us [C] pause in life's pleasures And [F] count its many [C] tears [F] While we [C] all sup [G] sorrow with the [C] poor

    There's a [C] song that will linger For- [F] ever [G] in our [Am] ears; [F] Oh, [C] hard times, [G] come again no [C] more

    Chorus:

    'Tis the [C] song, the sigh of the [F] wea- [C] ry Hard times, hard times,

    [D] Come again no [G] more [2, 3, 4; 1, 2] Many [C] days you have lingered [F] around my [G] cabin [Am] door [F] Oh, [C] hard times, [G] come again no [C] more

    While we [C] seek mirth and beauty And [F] music light and [C] gay,

    [F] There are [C] frail forms [G] fainting at the [C] door Though their voices are silent, Their [F] pleading [G] looks will [Am] say [F] Oh, [C] hard times, [G] come again no [C] more

    There's [C] pale drooping maiden Who [F] toils her life [C] away,

    [F] With a [C] worn heart, whose [G] better days are [C] o'er Though her voice would be merry, 'tis [F] sighing [G] all the [Am] day, [F] Oh, [C] hard times, [G] come again no [C] more

    'Tis a [C] sigh that is wafted A- [F] cross the troubled [C] wave

    [F] Tis a [C] wail that is [G] heard upon the [C] shore Tis a dirge that is murmured

    A- [F] round the [G] lowly [Am] grave [F] Oh, [C] hard times, [G] come again no [C] more
