Chris Stapleton - Hard Livin' Lyrics

I used to love to look for a fight
I'd get drunk and shoot out the lights
I was known to get outta hand
A rough and rowdy honky tonk man

Never thought it would happen to me
But this hard livin' ain't easy as it used to be

I looked a lot, but I never found
A woman that could settle me down
I was known to have a good time
No, I could never walk the line

Never thought it would happen to me
But this hard livin' ain't easy as it used to be

Never thought it would happen to me
But this hard livin' ain't easy as it used to be

    Finally!!!! FREAKIN FINALLY!!! A new country song THAT’S A REAL COUNTRY SONG! Enough of this barnyard rap shit, pop shit, pansy shit! Let’s bring it back now!

  28. Scott

    I feel bad that there are so many country artists that either forgot what it's like to live in the country or never did. When I say country I mean a sold out crowd of 50. I mean playing a no stoplight town. I grew up in the country 22 miles from the nearest McDonalds. The nearest Walmart was in the same parking lot and it's the same still to this day. We don't need anymore pretty boys singin pretty songs.

  29. Ronald Miller

    Comments with just thumbs up none down...whats that say lol

  30. Canun Entertainment

    This sick song makes me wanna buy a Harley Davidson 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
