Tried And Tempted (The Wood Brothers)

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
