    IT AIN'T EASY BEING EASY             Janie Fricke

  G                            D           G                  D
Surely you can sit down for a while      Maybe you can even  smile
         A                         Bm             G                                A
And I'll try to pretend that  you love me again   But it might take me  a little while
G                            D      G                              D
I know you'll be holding me tight  You'll know when the moment is right
             A                  Bm                       G               A
When I was broken in two it was all because of  you But baby I need you tonight

          D          G       D     D7                        G
It ain't easy being easy  Oh no  You're the one who took my heart and my soul
     G                    A                                       D
You walk away and left me out of control     It ain't easy being easy  Oh no
   A                             D                                  G       
(No it ain't) Easy when you're needing someone it ain't easy being under the gun
                          A                                       D
But I'll surrender even though I should run It  ain't easy being easy
Ending only.....It ain't easy being easy   oooh It ain't easy being easy.

G                       D            G                      D
I might end up lonely again     But once you were my only friend  
          A                        Bm               G            Em         A
So I'll hold you and cry with the truth in my eyes Hoping you'll love me again.
