Anthology Track 25 label.jpg

Record label does not assign authorship, nor does either Anthology booklet or www.78discography.com.


The Roud Folksong Index classifies this song as a version of Roud 6687, although a Roud number search does not return any versions which pre-date the Bentley Boys' recording.


Harry Smith's anthology notes call this song "a regionalized recasting of an earlier song 'Hard Times'."


This discussion on www.mudcat.org (post from 3.31PM, 9th September 07) gives the lyrics for a version of "Hard Times" dating from at least 1861. However, although there is a lot of similarity between the structure and lyrics of the two songs, the setting of the song is entirely different.


As the details of who wrote this version of the song, and when it was written are unknown, the copyright status of this composition is unknown.
