Description

The Hard Way (Carey Ott, Matt Warren) I was looking for my exit on the interstate sign But the wind went and blew it down I took a wrong right turn bout a half a mile back My direction’s all sun around Through the sideways rain and the love and the shame Watch the sunlight disappear Then the sun so black said you’ll never make it back Till you do some hard time out here God gave me the rain to wash away my pain Learn from bad mistakes I’ve made the hard way The rain let up as I came to a stop Right between two cotton fields I saw a coal black crow in a old dead tree Starin’ right back at me I wanted to surrender as my eyes went blind Thunderbolt split the sky I noticed I was headed down the same dirt road Robert Johnson sang about God gave me the rain to wash away my pain Learn from bad mistakes I’ve made The hard way God gave me the rain to wash away my pain Learn from bad mistakes I’ve made the hard way The hard way God gave me the rain to wash away my pain Learn from bad mistakes I’ve made the hard way
