Steeleye Span - Hard Times Of Old England / Cadgwith Anthem (1975) - single

"Hard, Hard Times" is a traditional Newfoundland folk song/ballad. There is an earlier version, from England, called "Rigs of the Times". The later version was written in 1936 at the time of the Great Depression by William Emberley of Bay de Verde and performed by Dick Nolan.
Emberley's verses, which passed quickly into tradition, are a local application of a pattern established by an 18th-century English broadside which ridiculed certain trades and later was often adapted to describe hard times. "Rigs of the Times" has been recorded by Shirley Collins, Martin Carthy, Maddy Prior and others. English folk-rock band Steeleye Span recorded a related song from England after the Napoleonic Wars: "Hard Times of Old England".
