Anderson, John - It Ain't Easy Being Me Lyrics




There ought to be a town somewhere named for how I feel
Yeah I could be the mayor down there and say, "Welcome to Sorryville"
Wouldn't be on the map nowhere you might say it don't exist
But if you make enough wrong turns, it'd be hard to miss

There oughta be a bridge somewhere they could dedicate to me
I'd probably show up at the ceremony with a can of gasoline
Walk on over to the other side and there I'd light a match
Then sit and stare through the smoke and flames wonderin' how I'm gonna get back

Why I do the things I do?
Was I born this way or am I a self made fool
I shoot the lights and I curse the dark
I need your love and I break your heart
And I know the words that will bring you back
But I don't say nothing as I watch you pack
I've had to work to be the jerk I've come to be
It ain't easy being me

There oughta be a side show act for freaks like me
I could be the star of the show with my name on the marquee
In a room with a big red button that says, "Danger, do not touch"
In twice a day I'd mash it down and you can watch me self destruct

Why I do the things I do?
Was I born this way or am I a self made fool
I shoot the lights and I curse the dark
I need your love and I break your heart
And I know the words that will bring you back
But I don't say nothing as I watch you pack
I've had to work to be the jerk I've come to be
It ain't easy being me

It ain't easy being me
It ain't easy being me

  5. Adrian Miller

    I thought this was a Chris Knight tune. Dammit! Both are great with a good message

    cszollinger

    Chris wrote it. John does a great rendition though!

  6. Randy Phelps

    Love John Anderson's voice... and it is cool that he covered this song... but man, it really is Chris Knight's.

  7. Carol Sharp

    I have been getting light headed

  8. MissAmazanda

    wow is this ever my life's theme song

  9. John Douglas

    Just listened to the Chris Knight version and it was fine, but John Anderson's is my favorite. Probably because I've been a fan of his unique voice and style since " 1959 "

    Robbie Stewart

    John Douglas John Nails This Song

    Shane McKay

    John Anderson has a very unique voice but you gotta hand it to Chris knight for writing soooo many wonderful songs including this one

  10. Maureen Splitgerber

    Horrible. Chris Knight did it best. This version is just sad.

  11. R Thomas

    Chris's version is the best. I like the best Chris wrote the song I think he's got the heart and soul in it cuz it's his feelings into words

    Aj Bright

    Blake Shelton And Both Blow This Song Outta The Park Cause They Both Put They're Heart And Soul Into This Song Sorry Man

    countrygirl country musiclover

    R Thomas GO LISTEN TO THE SHITTY VERSUON THEN. THIS AND BLAKE'S VERSIONS ARE THE ONLY TWO VERSIONS WORTH LISTENING TO. CHRIS KNIGHT BLOWS

    countrygirl country musiclover

    Aj Bright Making Fun Of You When I Type This You Know The First Letter Of Every Damn Word Ain't Gotta Be Capitalized Right

    adrian tams

    @countrygirl country musiclover Theres nothing wrong with liking Blake's or John's version more. But there is no reason to go on YouTube and bash Chris Knight. He wrote a great song and he performs it well too.

  12. Robbie Stewart

    John's Version Beats Blake's Version & I Luv Blake's Music But John's Version Rock's

    Tony Hayes

    It still belongs to Chris.
    At least Jon didn't completely butcher it like Blake did.
    Only Cash could get by with taking someone else's song and making it his.

    Robbie Stewart

    Tony Hayes I Can't Pick Just One Version I Like John And Blake's Versions

    Big League Wrestling and Lucha Libre - Official

    @Robbie Stewart I didn't hear this or the Blake version until years after I heard Chris Knight do it. I love the Chris Knight version more than either of the others.

    Robbie Stewart

    @Big League Wrestling and Lucha Libre - Official I Luv John's Version Of This Song Best

    Listen to Tyler Childers version and have your mind blown.
