No Way But The Hard Way

Album: No Guts. No Glory (2010)
  • I had a good job
    And a good lovin' woman
    But the world fell apart
    And then I lost her
    I can't bear to lose
    I'll be over to fight
    Can't drink enough whiskey
    To make it all right
    To make it all right

    But the tide will turn
    Cause I have learned

    There ain't no way but the hard way
    Get used to it
    I said there ain't no way but the hard way
    So get used to it

    You say I drink too much
    And that is a problem
    But that's how it goes
    When you hit rock bottom
    Don't need your advice
    Or your helping hand
    Cause I'm living on the road
    In a rock and roll band

    The time will turn
    And you will learn

    There ain't no way but the hard way
    Get used to it
    I said there ain't no way but the hard way
    So get used to it

    The tide will turn (Yes it will) (Hey, hey)
    I'm gonna roll on (Hey, hey)
    I'm gonna stand strong (Hey, hey)
    For the long haul (Hey, hey)
    Its rock and roll

    When the chips are down
    You gotta make your play
    'Cause there ain't no way (But the hard way)
    There ain't no way (But the hard way)
    I said there ain't no way (But the hard way)
    Oh no there ain't no way
    But the hard way

    There ain't no way but the hard way
    Get used to it (Rock and roll)
    I said there ain't no way but the hard way
    So get used to it

    There ain't no way but the hard way
    No way but the hard way
    No way but the hard way
    So get used to it
    The tide will turn Writer/s: JOEL FRANCIS O'KEEFFE, RYAN O'KEEFFE
