The Good Lord Knows I Tried
Recorded by Johnny Rodriguez
Written by Billy Joe Shaver

From the very first hello until the very last goodbye
D7 G D7
From here to there and everything between
All I ever did was try my best to keep you satisfied
D7 G
And all you ever did was make a fool of me

D7 G
I tried every way I knew to give you everything I had
A7 D7
And all I ever did was try to treat you right
Still the best that I could do was never good enough for you
D7 G
I couldn't please you but the good Lord knows I tried

My old friends they tried to warn me but I paid them all no mind
D7 G D7
When I see them now we don't have much to say
For you took everything I had and left me nothing but behind
D7 G
Feeling like some old forgotten yesterday

Repeat #2

D7 G
I couldn't please you but the good Lord knows I tried
