Marty Stuart — Easy To Love (Hard To Hold) lyrics

Written by Marty Stuart and Paul Kennerley

There's a train a comin' and I need a ride
Somewhere to run and somewhere to hide
I'd love to stay here by your side
But honey I'm hard to hold

I was born running wild and free
If you try to put a chain on me
A trail of dust is all you'll see
'Cause honey I'm hard to hold

It's hard to hold a ramblin' man
I'll slip through your fingers like a handful of sand
My intentions are as good as gold
Well, I'm easy to love but I'm hard to hold
Easy to love but I'm hard to hold

I've gotta get me back to Alabam
There's something baby you must understand
You can't slip a ring around a travelin' man
Honey I'm hard to hold

It's hard to hold a ramblin' man
I'll slip through your fingers like a handful of sand
My intentions are as good as gold
Well I'm easy to love but I'm hard to hold
Easy to love but I'm hard to hold

I'm a travelin' man, by desire
Tear it up and raise hell-fire
I live my life up against the wire
Honey I'm hard to hold

There's a time for lovin' and time to leave
I'll be back, I do believe
I've got a wild card up my sleeve
Honey I'm hard to hold

It's hard to hold a ramblin' man
I'll slip through your fingers like a handful of sand
My intentions are as good as gold
Well I'm easy to love but I'm hard to hold
Easy to love but I'm hard to hold
Easy to love but I'm hard to hold
Easy to love but I'm hard to hold
