[1969]
Da “First Take”, debut album di Roberta Flack.
Scritta da Donny Hathaway con Leroy Hutson de The Impressions.
La canzone è presente anche in “Everything Is Everything” (1970), il bellissimo album di debutto di Hathaway, vero e proprio gigante della black music, prematuramente scomparso nel 1979, al culmine della sua carriera artistica, in circostanze mai del tutto chiarite.

Trying times is what the world is talking about
you got confusion all over the land, mmm
mother against daughter, father against son
the whole thing is getting out of hand
but we wouldn’t have to suffer
if there were more love for your brother
but these are trying times

Got the riots and the ghettos and it’s all around
and the whole lot of things that’s wrong are going down
I don’t understand it, mmmm, my point of view
someone said “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”
and then we wouldn’t have to suffer
if there were more love for your brother
but these are trying times

People always talking about man’s inhumanity to man
but what are you trying to do to make this a better land
you just pick up your paper, turn on your t.v.
see a lot of demonstrations for equality
but we wouldn’t have to suffer
if there more love for your brothers
but these are trying times
trying times

But we wouldn’t have to suffer
oh, if there more love for your brother
but these are trying times
trying times
oooh-uuuh
trying times
trying times
trying times
trying times
