"It Don't Come Easy" as written by and Richard Starkey....
One, two,
One, two, three, four!

It don't come easy,
You know it don't come easy.
It don't come easy,
You know it don't come easy.

Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
And you know it don't come easy.
You don't have to shout or leap about,
You can even play them easy.

Open up your heart, let's come together,
Use a little love
And we will make it work out better,

I don't ask for much, I only want your trust,
And you know it don't come easy.
And this love of mine keeps growing all the time,
And you know it don't come easy.

Peace, remember peace is how we make it,
Here within your reach
If you're big enough to take it.

Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
And you know it don't come easy.
You don't have to shout or leap about,
You can even play them easy.

Peace, remember peace is how we make it,
Here within your reach
If you're big enough to take it.

I don't ask for much, I only want your trust,
And you know it don't come easy.
And this love of mine keeps growing all the time,
And you know it don't come easy.

"what's my name?" ringo!
"what's my name?" ringo!

"just in case anybody forgot."

    General CommentThis is great song...is this crankable? Can you crank it in your car and get a improptu sing-a-long going with other drivers on the road? This sounds like the perfect road trip song because a lot of people who live a 'don't come easy' lifestyle have to traverse the long roads to find their fortune. Awesome tune, without a doubt.

    General CommentNot sure from where these lyrics came, but the Blast From the Past album has them as:

    It don't come easy,
    You know it don't come easy.
    It don't come easy,
    You know it don't come easy.

    Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
    And you know it don't come easy.
    You don't have to shout or leap about,
    You can even play them easy.

    Forget about the past and all your sorrows,
    The future won't last,
    It will soon be over tomorrow.

    I don't ask for much, I only want your trust,
    And you know it don't come easy.
    And this love of mine keeps growing all the time,
    And you know it just ain't easy.

    Open up your heart, let's come together,
    Use a little love
    And we will make it work out better.

    Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues,
    And you know it don't come easy.
    You don't have to shout or leap about,
    You can even play them easy.

    Peace, remember peace is hell we make it,
    Here within your reach
    If you're big enough to take it.

    I don't ask for much, I only want your trust,
    And you know it don't come easy.
    And this love of mine keeps growing all the time,
    And you know it don't come easy.

    General CommentIt's bs that Ringo gets credit for this song, he didn't even write it! It's a great song too! Ringo isn't even capable of thinking up those lyrics.
