Well it's hard to be blind
Lord it's hard, it's hard to be blind
If i could see how happy i would be
Nobody cares about me
Nobody cares about me.

Lord i cried the day i went blind
I said ''Lord, what's happened to me?''
I lost my friends when i lost my sight
Nobody cares about me
Nobody cares about me.

Lord it's hard, it's hard to be blind
Lord it's hard, it's hard to be blind
If i could see how happy i would be
Nobody cares about me.

Lord it's hard to be blind
If i could see how happy i would be
Nobody, nobody cares about me.

I wrote my own new song to this called ''It's hard, it's hard to be poor'', i'll sing as Gary
Lord i cried the day i went blind.
I said ''Lord, what's happened to me?''
Lost my friends when i lost my sight
Nobody cares about me
An' nobody cares about me.

Lord it's hard and it's hard to be blind
And it's hard and it's hard to be blind
If i could see how happy i would be
Nobody cares about me
Nobody cares about me.

There was a time when i went blind
''Lord, what's happened to me?''
I lost my friends and i lost my sight
Nobody
Nobody
Nobody cares about me.

It's hard and hardest to be blind
Lord it's hard, it's hard to be blind
If i could see how happy i would be
Nobody cares about me
Nobody cares about me
Nobody cares about me.
