  • I guess the Lord made me hard to handle
    I guess the Lord made me hard to handle

    These old boots still got a lot of ground
    They ain't covered yet
    There's at least another million miles
    Under these old bus treads
    So if you think I'm gonnna' settle down
    I've got news for you
    I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

    And as long as there's a song
    Left in this old guitar
    This life I'm bound to lead
    Ain't for the faint of heart
    So you won't fall for me
    If you know what's good for you
    'Cause I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

    [Chorus]
    I guess the Lord made me hard to handle
    So lovin' me might be a long shot gamble
    So before you go and turn me on
    Be sure that you can turn me loose
    'Cause I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

    Girl, you look like you might be an angel
    So I won't lie
    I could love you like the devil
    If you wanted me to tonight
    And we could talk about forever for a day or two
    But I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

    [Chorus]

    Yeah, I still got a leavin' left to do Writer/s: BRETT BEAVERS, DERIC RUTTAN, DERIC JAMES RUTTAN, DIERKS BENTLEY
