Not the same song... Dylan, Springsteen and a bunch of others did that one, but I do believe the JJ one has different lyrics.

I've been trying to find one with the lyrics I'm hearing on the MOFRO version, but so far have struck out. So maybe it's something JJ was working on at one time, played it live a few times and has back burnered? I do hear some of either All or Hottest Spot in the guitar. Can't decide which one though...

If you search the Archive for Mofro Hard Times, there's a couple of other recordings of it. The one from the Fox Theater in Colorado, JJ says "We're gonna play a song y'all ain't never heard before. It's called Hard Times". I'm thinking it's an original...

Would LOVE to hear this live again, and maybe on the next record? Follower - thanks for turning me on to this tune. It's definitely a keeper!

The only voice that speaks for me speaks from this clay
Lil boy you ain't never take a dime from the man...

All that is
All that will be
All we have is each other
