    "Hard Tack, Come Again No More" is an American Civil War-era parody of the song "Hard Times, Come Again No More."

The authors of the many verses of the parody are unknown, although the first version is often attributed to Josiah Fowler of.   The origin of Hardtack’s name itself is a source of some disagreement. Many argue that it stems from the texture of the item combined with British sailor slang for food, or “tack.” Others say the term originated during the American Civil War. Some maintain that the name derives from the biscuit being “ hard as tacks ” – somewhat.
