Ringo Starr - It Don't Come Easy Lyrics




It don't come easy,
You know it don't come easy.

It don't come easy,
You know it don't come easy.

Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
And you know it don't come easy.
You don't have to shout or leap about,
You can even play them easy.

Forget about the past and all your sorrows,
The future won't last,
It will soon be over tomorrow.

I don't ask for much, i only want your trust,
And you know it don't come easy.
And this love of mine keeps growing all the time,
And you know it just ain't easy.

Open up your heart, let's come together,
Use a little love
And we will make it work out better.

(ah -)
(ah -)
(ooh-ooh)
(ah-ooh-ooh)

Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
And you know it don't come easy.
You don't have to shout or leap about,
You can even play them easy.

Peace, remember peace is how we make it,
Here within your reach
If you're big enough to take it.

I don't ask for much, i only want your trust,
And you know it don't come easy.
And this love of mine keeps growing all the time,
And you know it don't come easy.

    Ringo - the underrated Beatle!

  31. Brian Levine

    Writers: Richard Starkey - Please...this song has George all over it. Maybe it was a birthday present.

    George helped, but no way he would have given away the song if it was solely his.

    @Trespasser sure he would. He's George. Go listen to What Is Life.

  41. Anthony Briscoe

    I probably listen to this for like 10 hours

  42. Woody Schuler

    My oldest brother had this 45 and I never appreciated how great this song was until I was older. The horns are amazing and George’s guitar solo is unmistakable! Bravo Ringo and bless you George Harrison for giving this song to him! This could have been a Beatles song easily. 🙂

    Ringo is ROCK ROYALTY

  45. Ronald Hagadorn

  47. trinitylancer

    This song was played at my brothers funeral after being killed in a car accident at only 16, it was the same year the song came out.

    KJay

    @Robert allan If so , I thank you for your service to the community , which ever community that may be .......THANK YOU !!!

    Robert allan

    @KJay I was once a baker, after my apprenticeship I wanted to be a police officer, but believe it or not I was shot by someone as I was driving along the highway just outside of my town, the injury to my leg was too bad to become an officer, I am on a disability pension and have a lot of respect for the police, I live in Australia, but thank you for thinking of me.

    KJay

    @Robert allan That is horrible !!! I live in Australia too. Gee , you've been thru a lot - stay strong

    Robert allan

    @KJay Thanks, but what i have been through made me the man I am today which I am happy to be, and a big hi from Townsville.

    KJay

    @Robert allan As the old saying goes ..." what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger ".....very true ! Hi from Sydney

  61. VA H

    We are hereby for you

  62. Gerry Cooney

    This song was used by AFN radio in Europe in the early 70’s, for a commercial on the Good Conduct medal, awarded to US Army soldiers every 3 years who kept a clean record while serving.

  63. Robert Brunston

  68. Filippo Canali De Rossi

    a Beatles' tune like Ringo had never

  69. sue hollar

    I am Ringo was my favorite Beatle

  70. Gregory Mercer

    Ringo came out of the Beatles meltdown and in my opinion really showed himself as the most versatile and talented of the 4.

  71. Allen Spearing

    This is Ringo's best song

  72. Marilee Woods

    Love this lol lot of love Marilee

  73. Robert Brunston

  76. Dale Rowan

    Loved this song sure everyone did too.

  77. Andrew Patrick

    My favorite 1971 song. I remember my Dad buying the 45 for me.

  78. Gracie Walker

    Straight up beautiful obviously

  79. Ringo Starr

    seeing Ringo hold a guitar I byfar the most scariest thing ever since Yoko was screaming into my ear

  80. Osvaldo Menezes

    Gostaria de saber porque não creditar am essa canção a George Harrison?

  81. William Greeter

    He is one of the only 2 Beatles that’s still with us today Ringo and Paul McCartney

  82. Lawrence t. Mcguilicutty

    The 70’s are gone.

    Sam Tyler

    Happily I was there.

  83. kent millhaus

    Go ringo,go.with yellow submarine.

  84. maddymud

    This song has such a laurel Canyon vibe — the horns kinda throw it off, but Cinnamon Girl, Questions, Expecting to Fly all really similar in the song’s melodic feel. Instrumentation-wise, they took the rhythm more bumptious and less dreamy like the afore-mentioned songs

  85. Kevin Boyle

    truer words were never spoken

  86. Tango Bango

    One of Ringo’s best...he’s always been my fave Beatle. Ringo Forever!

  87. Jair Ferreira

    Ringo, com a melhor ajuda do amigo Harrison. Ótima canção.

  88. Edward Cricchio

    You know how a song brings you back? This song brings me back to 1974, even though it was out in 1971.

  89. Victor Gonzalez

    All this songs of ringo s, some kind of makes me travel in time in reality, unexplainable but so beautiful and relaxing. Not a song writer ??

  90. Pauline Williams

    My favourite Beatle. What a unique voice.....just love every song he ever sang.

    One, two, three, four!
    It don't come easy
    You know it don't come easy
    It don't come easy
    You know it don't come easy
    Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues
    And you know it don't come easy
    You don't have to shout or leap about
    You can even play them easy
    Open up your heart, let's come together
    Use a little love
    And we will make it work out better
    I don't ask for much, I only want your trust
    And you know it don't come easy
    And this love of mine keeps growing all the time
    And you know it don't come easy
    Peace, remember peace is how we make it
    Here within your reach
    If you're big enough to take it
    Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues
    And you know it don't come easy
    You don't have to shout or leap about
    You can even play them easy
    Peace, remember peace is how we make it
    Here within your reach
    If you're big enough to take it
    I don't ask for much, I only want your trust
    And you know it don't come easy
    And this love of mine keeps growing all the time
    And you know it don't come easy
    "What's my name?" Ringo!
    "What's my name?" Ringo!
    "Just in case anybody forgot"

    Look I always dug Ringo. Of course I always dug Stuart Sutcliffe too.

  96. Musings and More

    One of my favorites -- even trumps most of The Beatles' tunes in my book. Most Beatles' fans loved the Lennon and McCartney duo the most. Not me. My favorites were Ringo, Harrison, McCartney, and Lennon. In that order
