It Ain't About Easy Lyrics

by Montgomery Gentry

He said, beer works but liquor's quicker
And he shot down that whiskey straight
He said, I ain't no one but the secret is
Son, you gotta get out of your own way

I said, my job sucks
I got a broke down truck
And I feel like I'm spinning my wheels
As the pool balls clicked
He pulled a Lucky from his lips
And said son here's the deal

This ain't about easy, it's about tough
It's about leaving the house 'fore the sun comes up
The kickin', the cussin', the fussin', the fightin'
Stayin' in love when the money gets tight

When you start in this world
With a wide eyed girl
And a twenty dollar pawn shop ring
I know one thing, it ain't about easy

He looked at me
From underneath his BFW cap
He said, you're young and green
And full of dreams
What I wouldn't give for that

I said yea, but you know I ain't thirty years old
And I feel like I've run out of breath
He said welcome to life son and you ain't alive
If you ain't breakin' a sweat

This ain't about easy, it's about tough
It's about leaving the house 'fore the sun comes up
The kickin', the cussin', the fussin', the fightin'
Stayin' in love when the money gets tight

When you start in this world
With a wide eyed girl
And a twenty dollar pawn shop ring
I know one thing, it ain't about easy

Well, I payed his tab
And told him I was going home
He said son, just remember
The highs are higher than the low, the low

This ain't about easy, it's about tough
It's about leaving the house 'fore the sun comes up
The kickin', the cussin', the fussin', the fightin'
Stayin' in love when the money gets tight

When you start in this world
With a wide eyed girl
And a twenty dollar pawn shop ring
I know one thing, it ain't about easy
It ain't about easy
