LIFE AIN'T EASY

WELL HERE I AM IN THE WIND AGAIN
FLOATIN' WHERE IT TAKES ME
LAUGHIN' AND SPLASHIN' IN THE SUMMER SUN
UNTIL THE 'LARM CLOCK WAKES ME
THEN IT'S COFFEE AND A KISS AND TWO CIGARETTES
AND I'M BACK OUT IN THE COLD COLD WEATHER
CHASIN' MY DREAMS - BUT I JUST CAN'T SEEM
TO RUB TWO COINS TOGETHER

(SINGIN')
LIFE AIN'T EASY, LIFE AIN'T EASY
LIFE AIN'T EASY, AND NOTHIN' COMES FREE
LIFE AIN'T EASY, LIFE AIN'T EASY
LIFE AIN'T EASY AND NOTHIN'S FREE
FOR YOU AND ME

THAT WOMAN SHE DON'T UNDERSTAND
THE WAY MY MIND KEEPS DRIFTIN'
AND THE LORD DON'T ALWAYS LEND A HAND
WHEN MY POOR HEART NEEDS LIFTIN'
ARE WIFE AND KIDS REALLY ALL THERE IS
OR IS THERE SOMETHIN' BETTER
AND HOW MUCH SOUL MUST A POOR MAN SELL
TO RUB TWO COINS TOGETHER

(SINGIN')
LIFE AIN'T EASY, LIFE AIN'T EASY
LIFE AIN'T EASY. AND NOTHIN' COMES FREE
LIFE AIN'T EASY, LIFE AIN'T EASY
LIFE AIN'T EASY AND NOTHIN'S FREE
FOR YOU AND ME
