Garth Brooks – (A Hard Way To Make An) Easy Livin


That’s what I’m talkin’
Ahh

Yeah, it all looked simple when I saw him pickin’ on TV
So I borrowed daddy’s guitar and I bought myself a used Peavey
Yeah I learned a couple chords and I called a couple friends
Got ourselves a gig down at the Dew Drop Inn
But they started throwing beer and fried our equipment
And it’s a hard way to make an easy livin’

Well we got a little better and the dates started pourin’ in
And the groupies got hotter and it bothered all of our girlfriends
Then some half-naked hottie hopped up on the stage
Followed by the lead picker’s fiance
And a few minutes later she told us he was quittin’ (uh, yeah he’s done)
And it’s a hard way to make an easy livin’

Yeah, it might look greener on the other side
Peaking at it over your fence
But once you’re in it you’ll realize
Something about it don’t make sense

So we made ourselves a video and stuck it on CMT
And our lawyer told us all we’d be haulin’ in the royalties
It made a whole hundred grand but he billed us half a million
And it’s a hard way to make an easy livin’
That’s right

Yeah, it might look greener on the other side
Peaking at it over your fence
But once you’re in it you’ll realize
Something about it don’t make sense

Now we all feel lucky ’cause we’re doing what we love to do
And we hope you’ll come and see us
When we’re playin’ at a place near you
But we might need a ride just to get to where we’re pickin’
‘Cause it’s a hard way to make an easy livin’
Yes, it’s a hard way to make an easy livin’
To make this easy livin’, hey now
