Hard To Make A Crust

From the CD Talkin' 'Bout Love by Graham Ord and Dane Stevens


Hard to make a Crust

Rise up early
Beat the sun to the sky
Working late because I must
Joints are aching, back is breaking
It’s so hard to make a crust

Workin’ 3 or 4 jobs
To raise a family
Working poor is so unjust
Hard to get ahead
Debt keeps you in the red
It’s so hard to make a crust

All my dreams are an unresolved fable
Not enough to put food on the table
Though the road be dust
Give it all or bust
It’s so hard to make a crust

The roof needs mending
kids shoes are leaking
Losing sight of faith and trust
No money in the bank
No gas left in the tank
It's so hard to make a crust

I'll keep pressing on
Gotta keep looking up
I won't let my song be crushed
Like every working man
I’m doing the best I can
It's just hard to make a crust.
