Blue Rodeo - Try Lyrics

Don't tell me I'm wrong
Cause I've been watching every move that you make
Hearts you steal with your make-up and heels
Trouble for the men that you take

Every time you walk in the room
I couldn't even be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice
But I'm falling in love

Night after night – oh it's crazy

So many people who said
Girl you've got nothing but time
Oh you are a shining star
Don't you worry about what you're leaving behind

Every time you walk in the room
I couldn't even be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice
But I'm falling in love

Night after night – oh it's crazy
Oh you got to try try try
Don't you know you've got to try try try
Oh baby you try

Every time you walk in the room
I couldn't even be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice
I'm falling in love

Night after night – oh it's crazy
Oh you got to try try try
Don't you know you've got to try try try
Oh baby you try

    Loved this song and if I'm not mistaken I think that this was my first slow dance song back when I was in school lol

  27. first name last name

    When you consider this video was shot in 1987, it's terribly well done. Most Canadian videos back then were garbage shot on VHS with amateurish greenscreen, but this is quite obviously shot on film, with some very imaginative angles.

  28. Susan Williams

    One of the best Canadian bands!!!

  29. May A

    One of my favorite songs. Didn't even know they were Canadian like me😍

  30. Aaron Boots

    One of Canada’s greats for sure!!

  31. Palma Rosati

  32. Flo Shakakeesic

    Memories. ..still I don't listen...I love him

  33. Cordelia Chase

    Just heard this song for the first time earlier tonight on Zoomer Radio AM 740's The Eighties At 8. The singer is absolutely awesome! I thought it was country, but someone else here described them as a rock back with country influences.

  34. Wolf Pack

    Just TRY <3

  35. Wolf Pack

    Great :)

  36. da ne

  42. Lesley Lawrence

    Quintessential Canadian Music of the last 30 years. Proud to have witnessed these guys playing in St Catharines. One hell of a concert!

  43. Dalia Dunn

    Who unliked this video!?

  44. David Edward

    Who cares if BR is Canadian.... Just good music, that's all.


    We care, their songs speak to us and our environment growing up here. The lyrics can be universal but a lot of the lyrics in their music are about the Canadian environment and experiences growing up here, it's familiar to us. I can listen to music from other parts of the world but they won't have the same familiarity effect that BR does, I think other Canadians may feel the same way.

    I am 54, I grew up on a farm on the prairies, then, small mining towns way up north and now I live in the city, Vancouver.

    Take this song for example..

    If you're not Canadian, you just won't get it, sorry...

    If you're from the U.S, maybe, "Born in the U.S.A" by Bruce Springsteen or john Mellencamp's, "Jack and Diane" may give you a sense of what I mean, who knows? I do know Born In The U.S.A was actually an anti war song that a lot of Americans didn't get so, think of it from when they didn't get it. lol


    Oh, I just remembered another song by Bruce Springsteen that is my all time favorite of his, "Hungry Heart", that's an American song that can cross borders but still remains all American.

    David Edward

    JustAThought ironically (but seriously), I am 49 and live in Vancouver (suburb anyway)... I just sometimes get tired of the Canadian showy-ness. It's very un-Canadian.

  45. Wild Dingo

    Seen these guys play in Nova Scotia.... They blew the roof right off the building. Great vocals,,,Awesome music. Big fan off your group .

  46. william lewies

    Rim shot :) Drummer .

  63. tooez90

    Holy Smokes...this album is 31 years old...I must be old...I better go have a nap :)



  64. Suzanne Lacroix

    love this song

  65. david byerly

    this should've been a huge hit in the states, I don't understand why they are one of canada's best bands, yet few people in the US even know who they are


    david byerly most Americans don't knowBR because their songs don't have a catchy hook. If you want to hear a great Canadian band , listen to Lighthouse.....Pretty Lady and One Fine Morning.

  66. Pumpkin Pie

    Such a fantastic band!!

  67. Len Gasparini

    This song reminds me of all my trips to Vancouver in the late 1980s.

  68. Angus Cole

    One of the most poignantly beautiful n haunting songs ever!!! I remember seeing the video for the very first time. We had one of those enormous satellite dishes n I lived in a tiny lil town in NE MS. n it wouldn't pick up MTV but it did MUCH MUSIC outta Canada (,their version of MTV n far better in my opinion) n every single soul I ever played it for just fell in love with Blue Rodeo. Whoever said it sounds just as fresh today as the day it debuted is absolutely right.

  69. Chantal Descheneaux


  70. John Grahame

    Never an average song ! Fantastic band 👍👍

  71. XxSeraphicxX

    Dear Lord Jim Cuddy... can anyone croon so well?

    only 1.2 mill views is a same!!!

  94. Terry Beaton

    Listening to lots of old BR and this song seems to be their finest moment. Although the last "try" sounded a bit demanding for such a romantic song.

  95. Danny Lowry

    One time, my dad almost got t-boned coming out of a Foodland store. Little did he know that the guy who hit him was the drummer of Blue Rodeo! He saw them performing in Toronto on TV later that night, and went, "Hey! That's the guy who almost hit me!" A classic moment.

  96. Dogday

    I can hear them playing this song at Gage park in Hamilton, when i was just outside..awesome

  97. Ol' Hickory Ham Mike

    sexiest voice in tHIS TOWN
