Lyrics

Good bye, hard life
Don’t cry would you let it ride?
Good bye, hard life
Don’t cry would you let it ride?
You can’t see the mornin’, but I can see the light
Try, try, try let it ride
While you’ve been out runnin’ I’ve been waitin’ half the night
Try, try, try let it ride
And would you cry if I told you that I lied and would you say goodbye or
Would you let it ride?
And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye or would you let it ride?
Seems my life is not complete I never see you smile
Try, try, try let it ride
Baby you want the forgivin’ kind and that’s just not my style
Try, try, try let it ride
And would you cry if I told you that I lied and would you say goodbye or
Would you let it ride?
And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye or would 
 you let it ride? 
I’ve been doin’ things worthwhile, you’ve been bookin’ time
Try, try, try let it ride
And would you cry if I told you that I lied and would you say goodbye or
Would you let it ride?
And would you cry if I told you that I lied
And would you say goodbye or would you let it ride?
Would you let it ride
Would you let it ride
Would you let it ride
Would you let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Try, try, try let it ride
Would you let it ride?
Would you let it ride?
Would you let it ride?
Would you let it ride?
