Paul Revere & The Raiders - Don't Take It So Hard Lyrics




I've tried to let you down so easy
I'd like to still be just a friend
We shared such memories together
But all good things come to an end

And you shouldn't take it so hard
You shouldn't take it so hard
Oh, you shouldn't take it so hard

You shouldn't take it so hard
You shouldn't take it so hard
No, you shouldn't take it so hard

So hard, so hard, hard

You wonder when you're gonna see me
I might just pass this way again
Until then don't you wait up for me
'Cause now I'm getting in the wind

You shouldn't take it so hard
Oh, you shouldn't take it so hard
Oh, you shouldn't take it so hard

You shouldn't take it so hard
Oh, you shouldn't take it so hard
You know, you shouldn't take it so hard

So hard, so hard

Don't you remember what I told you from the start
When people fall in love too much it can cause a broken heart
That won't mend easy but if you just wait sometime
I may come walking to you in the sunshine

You shouldn't take it so hard
You shouldn't take it so hard
No, you shouldn't take it so hard
[?] a-flowin' and I gotta be a-goin'

You shouldn't take it so hard
You shouldn't take it so hard
You shouldn't take it so hard

Paul Revere & The Raiders Don't Take It So Hard Comments
  1. Daniel Golus

    This is way too fast. But I do like the mono.

  2. Curt Brennan

    One of their BEST!! The speed is WAY too fast on this and one of your photos at .20 was of the "new" raiders, most of whom had nothing to do with this song.
    Just saying......

    skh1825

    Go to: Settings ==> Playback speed ==> 0.75 ...and that will slow it down.

  3. jacoba atlas

    The song runs too fast.

  4. FA Barragan

    This was released during their "It's Happening show" takes right back!

  5. Dewayne Jimison

    Always one of my favorites. Remember watching all of the It's Happening and Happening '68 shows

  6. MrLeglamp

    More like Paul Revere & The Speed Demons.

  7. donnie gerrin

    My single does not play this fast.

  8. Nesta Abbott

    Wish I could jump up and dance!!!! But had double surgery on left hip two months ago!!! I fear I will never dance again!!

  9. Nesta Abbott

    On this who was in the band besides Paul and Mark?? Love the beat!

  10. Nesta Abbott

    On this who was in the band besides Paul and Mark?? Love the beat!

  11. Rick Ulsh

    the speed is correct its a single and not an album cut

  12. MikeBlitzMag

    As someone else noted, this is playing a bit faster than the original record did, like at 48 RPM or so. And by the way, it's from 1968 (May-June, to be exact), not 1969. Great, great, great record, though.

  13. rory gallagher

    joe jr later drummed for al jarreau

  14. aterseraph

    The speed on this recording is too fast; it sounds like Mark is a little kid..

  15. 5jonesville

    Mark Lindsey was an artist really. Just in his own way.

  16. roughtake

    too speeded up

  17. FA Barragan

    @borderking59 I am a few years older but I remember in my 6th grade class my teacher asked the kids who our favorite rock groups were and we answered: The Beatles,The Raiders and the Monkees.

    Kevin Larkin

    I was around the sixth grade then ...
    Or eighth in 1968 ...

  18. borderking59

    great song, the raiders did replace several members through the latter part of the 60's. drake was my favorite guitarist of the bunch, but harpo and especially freddy weller were super talented. freddy was a studio guitarist and belonged to billy joe royals band for a while. he knew his way around the fretboard..keith allison who took over for charlie coe was also very talented. just a wonderful group all together. as a 6 yr old in 65. my favorite band!!

  19. Lenmac4

    Never saw a band replace their lineup as much as this one did.

  20. shmuli9

    It sounds a LITTLE fast, but not by much. (In fact, I wouldn't even have notcied it if other people hadn't commented. I had this 45 and it sounded more or less like this. Perhaps it was slower on the album...) I never really thought about it, but Mark Lindsay IS quite attractive...

  21. SurdinMusicUnlimited

    Slow it down, indeed!

  22. Helen Kelly

    Whoa! This is a bit too fast...slow it down to it's original speed.

  23. gomerijos

    The song is from 1968.

  24. Gordon Weigleb

    This song was running thru my head the other day, but I couldn't remember the words ! Love this song.

  25. sharon cockrum

    I just loved this group....Mark was just so adorable....I would race home from school just to watch him on Where The Action Is. Love all the pictures...thanks!

    Krista Orman

    Agree! He's still playing, and I think he's on tour with the Cowsills.
