There've been good times
There've been bad times
I had my share of hard times too
But I lost my faith in the world, honey, when I lost you
Remember the good times we've had together
Don't you want them back again?
Though these hard times are bugging me now
Honey, now it's a sin

There's got to be trust in this world
Or it won't get very far
Well, trust in someone
Or there's going to be war



I (played the acoustic on that). I was a proud owner of a 12-string at the time. Actually, I had two: a Harmony and a Guild. The Guild was very nice.

- Keith Richards, 1977
