A New Year wish…

…for all y'all, from Stephen Foster and Upper Left.

Let us pause in life's pleasures and count its many tears,
While we all sup sorrow with the poor;
There's a song that will linger forever in our ears;
Oh hard times come again no more.
Tis the song, the sigh of the weary,
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;
Oh hard times come again no more.
While we seek mirth and beauty and music light and gay,
There are frail forms fainting at the door;
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say
Oh hard times come again no more.
Tis the song, the sigh of the weary,
Hard times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;
Oh hard times come again no more.
No matter how good this year has or hasn't been, I hope you find the next one better.

Happy new year, Shaun. Thank you for keep on plugging along on your blog, which I read daily. I do appreciate your hard work and take on things. This is my current favorite version of this beautiful, timeless song.
