Jennings, Shooter - It Ain't Easy Lyrics




When I was just a young boy,
my daddy came to me, said son
Out in this world theres a lotta things
that'll make you feel like your supposed
to be. You don't have to read the good book, to be a good man just the same.
And forget about the money, money ain't brought nothing to your daddy but pain.
It ain't easy.
It ain't eeaasyy...
But you'll be alright
Now it's 15 years later, and I'm out on the road, and it's been 4 years to day he died, and they won't even play us on the radio.
And I think I've found my way alright without him here to catch me now and again,
I just keep on moving along, keeping my mind on my song, and trying to figure out love.
And it ain't easy.
It ain't eeaasyy.
But I'll be alright.
Any other fool, any other fool would throw this away.
Any other fool, yeah.
I wanna take a minute to thank you, for all the things that you done,
yeah you gave me a light in the dark of night, when there was no place to hide, no where to run.
And it ain't easy.
It ain't eeaasyy...
It ain't easy, it ain't easy.
But you'll be alright.
We'll be alright.
It ain't eeeeaaaassssy...

    Your dad must have been so thrilled when you were born. I heard him say you looked just like him. I really love your mom and dad. Your mom was like a Angel when she stood by Waylon.
    Your doing great in your own career you were blessed with a great voice. I heard you sing that tiny bit in I walk the line movie and I said," I got to find out who that is and hear that song all the way through. So I did just that. I heard your dad sing it when he was young and his voice was so rich and beautiful. That song shows how beautiful both of yalls voices are.
    The best to you and don't worry about Nashville and music row. You just keep singing and fans will keep coming to see you.
    If you happen to read this give my love and best to your mom, a great singer and songwriter.

    I saw Waylon once in concert! It was a hell of a ride to get there was a big snow storm and I rode with a trucker and his wife to get there. We saw a car with 3 ladies slide under a semi truck and roll over in a ditch. We went and helpd one surviver she came flying out of that car screaming I yelled Jesus save me an he did. Her 2 friends died on impact. Waylon was playing and singing don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys an I decided to take some pictures and a security guard was trying to stop me. I wouldn't stop and your dad was singing and making all kinda poses so the guard threw up his hands an let me. It was hilarious and I still have the pictures. It was in Minnesota where this took place.

  67. Eric White
