Hard Times Are Relative

  		Verse: 1 
     C         F         G                  C 
Just me and my sister, a dog and a piece of land 
   C                F                                 G 
My sister?s name is Darlene and the dog is called Cheyenne 
    F                  G                    C           F 
Our folks both passed away last fall in the fire at the mill 
   F           C              G           C 
We get by on a garden and whatever we can kill 

Verse: 2 
        C                   F             G           C 
On the land there stands a cabin that our grandfather built 
     C            F                        G 
When I?m away to hunt, I feel overrun with guilt 
      F              G                   C             F 
Cause Darlene?s all alone except for the dog and awful dreams 
      F              C               G          C 
She?s seven years my younger and I?m only seventeen

Chorus F C F C We need to fill the smokehouse, winters coming on C C/B Am F G I know it isn?t easy, since mom and dad been gone F C F Am We will keep on growing, two branches of the tree C F G C Hard times are relative when it comes to family

Verse: 3 C F G C In the morning I was off before the sun had kissed the ridge C F G Whistling new Jimmy Rogers tune as I crossed the coal train bridge F G C F Two good days of hunting and an evening all alone F C G C I?ll quarter up what I take down then pack it all back home Verse: 4 C F G C My head up in the clouds walking on uneven ground C F G My boots slipped out beneath me and I came a crashing down F G C F To the entrance of a cavern, its walls all were wet with moss F C G C My rifle up there on the ledge said hope was looking lost

F C F C We need to fill the smokehouse, winters coming on C C/B Am F G I know it isn?t easy, since mom and dad been gone F C F Am We will keep on growing, two branches of the tree C F G C Hard times are relative when it comes to family

Verse: 5 C F G C Three nights nearly frozen, my head filled up with doubt C F G No matter how hard I tried there was no climbing out F G C F I yelled for help then prayed the same and even yelled some prayers F C G C Tears fell at the thought of Darlene with no one there Verse 6 C F G C My mind began to flutter, like the wings of a dove C F C Coulda sworn that I was dreaming when Darlene appeared above F G C F She lowered down a rope then tied it to a blackjack tree F C G C Cheyenne had found my drag rack trail and brought her straight to me

Verse 7 C F G C As proud as any father of this fearless little one C F G Caring for a homestead while most kids are having fun F G C F Smiling on the way back home there were no words I could say F C G C Till we stopped to dress the 10 point buck she had shot along the way
