"The Hardest Part" as written by and J.p. Bowersock 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 babydoll for my girl
And I worked hard for every little bit I got
The things I got are gonna stay
And it's been flooding so hard on them company mines
That you know it's gonna flood someday
And 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
And that ain't the hardest part
And that ain't the hardest part
And that ain't the hardest part

    General CommentWhere are the comments? This song is pretty straight-forward to me. A song about true love and finding someone who can love you back just as much as you love them.

    This song rocks pretty hard.

    "I've been turned around
    I've been mystified by a true love."

    Nothing sounds better than when Ryan belts those lines out.

    This song's got soul.

    General Comment"the hardest part is loving somebody that cares for you so much"

    a fine expression of perhaps life's biggest paradox. the one that makes this world go round and the reason so many people end up heartbroken. if showing another person how super fucking much you love and want them would be enough for that person to fall in love with you back, things would be easy. but that's just not the way it goes. it even works the other way around.

    General Comment"Promises don't pay cash at the bank
    If they did I'm bidding your word "

    I've heard this song over a million times and I really think the correct lyrics is .. if they did i'm BETTING your word.

    Anyone else agree? All of the other lyric sites say bidding but they could all be getting it from the wrong source. I think betting makes just as much sense as bidding, if not more.
