Hard Livin’ – Keith Whitley lyrics

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

Well you can call upthe sheriffAnd the highway patrol‘Cause there’s a fool on the roadCareenin’ out of controlHard liquor, fast womenI just can’t let ’em beLord, I wish hard livin’ didn’t come so easy for me
Well, I keep my motor runnin’Got my beer on the iceAnd my idea of heaven is a pair of diceSeven come elevenSet this poor boy freeLord, I wish hard livin’Didn’t come so easy for me
Bright lights, Saturday nightWell, I musta had a couple, I’m-a feeling all rightMy cupcake she can shimmy and shakeSpend more money than anybody make
Well, give me some more of high-octane juiceYou know where ain’t no cure, forget your honky-tonk bluesCome up with somethin’ I’ll develop an immunityLord, I wish hard livin’ didn’t come easy for me
Out on the town just a-foolin’ aroundHey, I got my mind on the lost and foundStep up, no need to be shyAnd all right, a pretty woman’s got her ticket to ride
Well, my tires are flat and now I’m out of gasAlways promised myself I’d let the next one passLord, I wish that a promise didn’t break so easily
And I wish hard livin’ didn’t come easy for meHey, I wish hard livin’ didn’t come easy for me
