In These Hard Times

We're grateful to Linda Hirschhorn for sharing her song, created in March 2020 and inspired a Bertolt Brecht quote: "In the dark times will there also be singing? Yes, there will also be singing about the dark times.”

Linda invites your feedback contact her to let her know how you used her song!

All four parts are combined onto one page of sheet music.

Part 1: "In these hard times, there will always be singing; always be singing in these hard times" (repeat)

Parts 2 and 4: "Yes there will always be singing; yes in these hard times" (repeat)

Part 3: "Yes there will always be singing; yes in these hard times; Yes there will always be singing; singing in these hard times."
