The Hardest Part Lyrics

by Ryan Adams

Pay my respect to the company store
I ain't got no money don't want no more
Pay my respects to the company boys
Now just move along

I worked hard for every little bit I got
And got lucky once on some advice
Met a dark haired girl that the Mississippi moon
Musta left by mistake one night

In a hurry, Lord
And that ain't the hardest part
The hardest part is loving
Somebody that cares for you so much

Promises don't pay cash at the bank
If they did, I'm bidding your word
They couldn't pay me for the time that it took to write a check
To buy a baby doll for my girl

And I worked hard for every little bit I got
The things I got are gonna stay
It's been flooding so hard on this company mines
That you know it's gonna flood someday

You're gonna miss someone
And that ain't the hardest part
The hardest part is loving somebody that cares for you

And that ain't the hardest part
The hardest part is working and I've worked enough
I could stretch that penny like a silver line
Rolling through the pages of my life

Underneath your name where it's underlined
I've been turned around
I've been mystified by a true love

And that ain't the hardest part
Talkin' 'bout a true love
That ain't the hardest part
And that ain't the hardest part
