Description
It's time for a little down home gospel, brothers and sisters, only, without the gospel.

Yes, yes, yes, step on up, raise your hands in the air and feel the spirit flow though you (Bourbon is my preferred spirit).

Yes, dear brothers and sisters, Life Is Hard, but we can make it just a bit easier. and one way to make it easy is to show generosity to your fellow man. Now, in just a few minutes, my dearly beloved congregation, we'll be passing the plates around. Remember your generosity! Remember your spirit! And remember my Bourbon!

Hallelujah and amen!

Lyrics
Well I don't know where I'm going
I just don't know where I've been
If they opened up those pearly gates
I think I'd jump right in
I wish that I could stand behind
the man that holds the cards
Woah, woah woah oh oh oh
Life is hard

Well, the intellect that wrecked your mind
won't set your spirit free
When this old world falls apart
Please don't run to me
Cause you can run all your life
But you won't get very far
Woah, woah woah oh oh oh
Life is hard

Life is hard
I don't know but I've been told
Life is hard
Don't lay that down on me
So come on in and have a drink
I need the company
Woah, woah woah oh oh oh
Life is hard

Life is hard
I don't know but I've been told
Life is hard
Don't lay that down on me
So come on in and have a drink
I need the company
Woah, woah woah oh oh oh
Life is hard
Woah, woah woah oh oh oh
Life is hard
Woah, woah woah oh oh oh
Life is hard

Swing your partner...
I had a blueberry pie in competition, but it was beaten by the Widow Johnson's Apple turnovers. She always wins. I guess I'll have to take her out before the next county fair.

Thanks for listening!

Life is hard for sure
But it can be a hell of a lot of fun to when you share it with your friends and family. Just like you shared this one with all of us.

Rocks on Joseph and sounds really good. Only thing was the lead break seemed way too far back in the mix for me. Of course I am going deaf, but I could hear the rest of it just fine, and I really liked what you've done. Good lyrics, good rhythm, great bass, that's just what the barkeep ordered.

thanks Joseph, you did good.

I really enjoyed this Joseph
Humourous, uplifting and really well sung (and a bass solo to boot!). This is one of your strongest vocals yet I think - I reckon you should do this more often.
Reminiscent of Poco's "We're All Heading For a Hoedown"...... kick up yer heels :)

There's actually a story behind the bass solo. This was written when I was in college and, at the time, I was in one of the university's jazz bands. The bass players had a little competition going on to see how often we could work a few licks from "Dixie," which is the university's fight song, into whatever we were playing. So, this tune was just perfect for that.

Glad you enjoyed it. And the vocals on this one were really fun to do.

Yeahaah!
Fun, fun, fun. This is one of the most exuberant songs in all of Macjams. Although you sing about how life is hard, this has pure joy and entertainment in its core. It has real, inspirational message in the core of this uplifting song.
