Counting Crows - The Ballad Of El Goodo Lyrics




Years ago, my heart was set to live, oh
and I've been trying hard against unbelievable odds
It gets so hard in times like now to hold on
But guns they wait to be stuck by, at my side is God
And there ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round
Ain't no one goin' to turn me 'round
There's people around who tell you that they know
And places where they send you, and it's easy to go
They'll zip you up and dress you down and stand you in a row
But you know you don't have to, you can just say no
I've been built up and trusted, broke down and busted
But they'll get theirs and we will get ours if you can
just hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
Years ago my heart was set to live, oh
but I've been trying hard against strong odds
It gets so hard at times like now to hold on
Well, I'll fall if I don't fight, and at my side is God

    Years ago, my heart was set to live, oh
    And I've been trying hard against unbelievable odds
    It gets so hard in times like now to hold on
    But guns they wait to be stuck by, at my side is God
    And there ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    There's people around who tell you that they know
    And places where they send you, and it's easy to go
    They'll zip you up and dress you down and stand you in a row
    But you know you don't have to, you can just say no
    And there ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    I've been built up and trusted, broke down and busted
    But they'll get theirs and we will get ours if we can
    Just hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
    Years ago my heart was set to live, oh
    And I've been trying hard against strong odds
    It gets so hard at times like now to hold on
    But I'll fall if I don't fight, and at my side is God
    And there ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    There ain't no one going to turn me 'round
    Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
    Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on
    Hold on, hold on

  2. roger murray

    He is a brilliant singer but he doesn't come close to capturing the soul or the essence of this extraordinary song. Consequently he may as well be running through this rendition whilst sitting on the toilet.

  3. Juke Joint

    Big Star...

    Amazing!  I would have never guessed this was a Cover!  I think this is every bit as good or better than the original!
