  1. We Tried

From the album Pretty Good Therapy

I wrote this song right after I had just finished listening to Waylon Jennings Autobiography.

Lyrics

{D}If you could just shut up and listen
If you'd would give me half a {A}chance
there's just a few things that you're missin'
Stop judgin me based on your {D}past
It seems like all I do is {G}try
just try to keep you satis{D}fied
Well now I'm tired of wonderin {A}why
I'll just move on and say we {D}tried

This wasn't just another party
I hoped that you might be the one
but we barely just got started
you started actin' like we're done
I only wanted you to love me
I wasn't here just for the ride
but you put something else above me
I'll just move on and say we tried

{D}I'll just move on and say we {G}tried
No need to say who's right or {D}wrong
now that my eyes are open {A}wide
I can see it's time to move {D}along
And If we ever meet {G}again
there ain't no need to run and {D}hide
I hope that we can still be {A}friends
I'll just move on and say we {D}tried

My papa taught me not to cry
When I fell down and skinned my knee
and he said son you'll be alright
you just can't let them others see
and so I find that now and then
sometimes it hurts down deep inside
but I've learned to hold it in
I'll just move on and say we tried

Tag
Yeah, I'll forget my foolish pride
I'll just move on and say we tried.
