Title
Hard sledding
Additional title: Hard sledding, hard sledding, Mighty hard sledding! The journey of life, With its care and strife, Is mighty hard sledding. [first line of chorus]
Additional title: n the jostle of life that we see ev'ry day, Some folks struggle on always dreading, The future that hope one time pained so gay, But in colors that faded and left them to say, "This life is mighty hard sledding" [first line]
