If You're Tryin' You Ain't

Album: American Ride (2009)
  • Yeah You can try to love your woman
    Try to love your friends
    Try to love your neighbor
    You can try it again
    Try to go to church
    Try to live your life
    Probably still be tryin' on the day that you die.

    Well, if you're tryin' you ain't
    (tryin')
    There's work to do son
    You can't get up early
    Baby, you can't get it done
    Roll up your sleeves
    Don't tell me that you can't
    Make something something
    If you're tryin' you ain't

    Try something old
    Try something new
    Try it when no one else is even watchin'
    But you (watchin' but you)
    Try just a little
    Try it too much
    Try an over do it and it still ain't enough

    And, if you're tryin' you ain't
    (tryin' you ain't)
    There's work to do son
    You can't get up early
    Baby, you can't get it done
    Roll up your sleeves
    Don't tell me that you can't
    Make something something
    If you're tryin' you ain't

    Tryin'
    Tryin' you ain't
    Tryin'
    Tryin'

    Well if you're tryin' you ain't
    (tryin' you ain't)
    There's work to do son
    You can't get up early
    Baby, you can't get it done
    Roll up your sleeves
    Don't tell me that you can't
    Make something something
    If you're tryin' you ain't
    And,if you're tryin' you ain't
    (tryin' you ain't)
    There's work to do son
    You can't get up early
    Baby, you can't get it done
    Roll up your sleeves
    Don't tell me that you can't
    Make something something
    If you're tryin' you ain't

    Tryin
    Tryin
    Tryin you ain't
    Tryin
    Still tryin Writer/s: Toby Keith
