The Wood Brothers – Tried And Tempted lyrics

Well I been thinkin' 'bout droppin' out
And lettin' this old river sweep me into the sea
Do you remember when I sold you my soul?
My God, it's gettin' kinda old won't you sell it back to me?

I been tried and tempted
Tried and tempted
Tried and tempted
Tried and tempted

I been thinkin' 'bout turnin' round
And headin' up the stream to climb a mountain of youth
Do you remember when I opened up your box and let the demons out
They're fightin' nail and tooth

I been tried and tempted
Tried and tempted
Tried and tempted
And it's hard to be strong when you're tried and tempted too long
Well it's hard to be strong when you're tried and you're tempted too long

Well I'd like to be the wind
Don't want to be the sail
I'd like to be the train not the rail
I'd like to be the train not the rail

I been tried and tempted
Tried and tempted
Tried and tempted
And it's hard to be strong when you're tried and tempted too long
Tried and tempted
Tried and tempted
And it's hard to be strong when you're tried and tempted too long
Yeah it's hard to be strong when you're tried and tempted too long
Yeah it's hard to be strong when you're tried and tempted too long
