  1. Hard Man to Love

Lyrics

hard man to love
The sound of pecans
falling on the tin
Branches swayin
Leaves rustle in the wind
Rockin on that back porch
watching clouds roll in
Feelin the gentle
pat of her soft skin
wrinkles on her eyes
told more than she said
The pain of her past
between the lines I read
She stared out at that treetraveling
through time
Her green eyes glazed over
as she relived in her mind
Chorus:
He was a hard man to love
but somehow I did
Don't know how I got through it
but somehow I lived
He used to do things
I can't talk bout
Things I can't mention
Page 2
or say out-loud
he was a hard man to love
When he drank his whiskey
he was mean as a snake
Not a kind word did he utter
nor care did he take
He'd bust through that door
looking to fight
It didn't matter what it was
wether wrong or right
He was a hard man to love
but somehow I did
Don't know how I got through it
but somehow I lived
He used to do things
I can't talk about
Things I can't mention
or say out-loud
He made me miscarry some babies and others I had
Were mistreated uncared for
and beaten real bad
Somehow I don't know
but they lived through
They learned to sing real purdy
and harmonize too

Those kids stuck together like
peas in a pod
They found humor in pain
you might think that's odd
The stories they told
made em laugh till they'd cry
Till one day their old man
took sick near died
He was a hard man to love
but somehow we did
We cried out to Jesus
and somehow he lived
Don't know why Jesus saved
such a mean man
But He chose to rescue
like only God can
He was a hard man to love
she leaned over in her chair (strum through)
squeezed my hand real tight
With tears in her eyes she said
I'm glad you chose right
To leave that fool
that hurt you so bad
I know you get lonely
and sometimes you're sad

He was a hard man to love
and somehow you did
But now that it's over
you can really live
You can raise your son
without any fear
You did the right thing now- ya hear
