"Die Tryin'" as written by Guy Clark and Jon Randall Stewart....
Don't be a stranger
If you're looking for a friend
If you want an even break
You've got to learn to bend

You don't have a song
If you don't know how to sing
You don't have a prayer
If you don't know how to dream

[Chorus ]

What's the use in dyin'
If you don't die tryin'
If you don't die tryin'
What's the use
What's the use in flyin'
If you don't die flyin'
If you don't die flyin'
What's the use

If you're gonna roll the dice
You gotta take a chance
Gotta get out on the floor
If you want to do the dance

If you don't know how to laugh
You'll never learn to cry
If you don't know how to fall
You'll never learn how to fly

    General CommentI'm really surprised that there are hardly any comments in the Guy Clark section, considering he's one of the best songwriters of all time.

    The message in this song is pretty clear and very strong.
