  • This gettin' up early, pulling double shifts,
    Gonna make an old man of me long before I ever get rich.
    But I'm tryin'
    It's been two years since we've finalized,
    I still ain't used to puttin' ex in front of wife.
    But I'm tryin'.
    Send more money right away, is pretty much all she has to say when she
    Calls these days and don't you be late

    But all I can do, is all I can do and I keep on tryin'
    And all I can be is all I can be and I keep on tryin'
    There's always a mountain in front of me,
    Seems I'm always climbin' and fallin' and climbin'
    But I keep on tryin'

    I remember daddy sayin' keep your eye on the ball, run like hell, play to win,
    Get up when you fall
    I'm tryin'
    Don't say nothin' that you can't take back
    Never do anything you might regret
    No don't do that
    Daddy I'm tryin'
    Know the difference between heaven and hell
    Go easy on the bottle be hard on yourself
    And I know he meant well

    But all I can do, is all I can do and I keep on tryin'
    And all I can be is all I can be and I keep on tryin'
    There's always a mountain in front of me,
    Seems I'm always climbin' and fallin' and climbin'
    But I keep on tryin'

    There's always a mountain in front of me
    Seems I'm always climbin' and stumblin'
    And then fallin'
    And then climbin'
    But I keep on tryin'

    This gettin' up early pullin' double shifts
    Gonna make an old man of me
    Long before I ever get rich
    But I'm tryin' Writer/s: ANTHONY R SMITH, CHRIS ALLEN WALLIN, JEFFREY STEELE
