Songbob Hard Times (come again no more)versions (64* d) RE: Hard Times (come again no more)versions 28 Jan 10

Hard times, hard times, and wuss a-comin'
Hard Times through my poor old head keeps runnin'.
I'd cotch the man that wrote that song --
To shake him well would not be wrong.
I'd shake him up and shake him down --
Shake him till good times comes 'round.

That comes from a Minstrel-Show play, and I learned it a while back, but now can't find it on the internet. I downloaded some pdf files of old Minstrel Show songbooks (Hooley's Opera Songster is one), but recent searches have not located my source. Does anyone have an idea where I could/should look?
