I go to bed, but sleep won't come,

Get up in the night, I couldn't fight my feelings.

Here comes the landlord, just a-knocking upon my door.

I've got four hundred/month rent to pay,

Time tough, (time tough),

Everything is out of sight, it's so hard, (so hard, so hard, so hard).

Time tough, (time tough),

Everything is growing higher and higher, (higher and higher).

Sister lee cannot bear it,
                         C
And brother Lincoln only stand it, now.
               F
They're crying night and day, louder and louder,
                    C
Nobody to help them make their way.
         F
I've got four hundred/month rent to pay,
                   C
And I can't find a dollar. Let me, let me tell you;

Everything is growing higher and higher, (higher and higher).

 Good times once lead into bad times,
                           C
But now the bad times take over.

When I was a little boy,
               C
I just keep on feeling it, feeling it, feeling it, feeling it...
