A Hard Life Makes a Good Song
Is your heart beating hard when you see the lawman
Do you feel like you’ve run your last mile
When you’re out in the cold with the blue lights flashin’
Something waits at the end of your trial
A short life of trouble
and a long time being wrong
A hard life makes a good song
A hard life makes a good song
Does she take all you give, just to call her baby
And you know she’s just playing a game
When you lay in your bed with one eye open
Something waits at the end of your pain
A short life of trouble
and a long time being wrong
A hard life makes a good song
A hard life makes a good song
When you’re singing your song and you really mean it
There’s a power in what you have said
If the words that they hear have them believin’
Everyone in the room nods their head
A short life of trouble
and a long time being wrong
A hard life makes a good song
A hard life makes a good song
You know a hard life makes a good song
