I'm Gonna Try to Be That Way Lyrics
© '70 Song Of Cash Music, ASCAP
Once upon a time there lived a man uhhuh many years ago in a foreign land
Knew how to live right tried to be a light gave everybody a helping hand
I'm gonna try to be that way uhhuh I'm gonna try to be that way
Do the kind of things a man ought to do
Say the kind of things a man ought to say
I'm gonna try to be that way
He never done anybody wrong uhhuh he tried to help everybody along
He brought a better plan to make a better man
Out of the rich or the poor or the weak or the strong
And you know that I'm gonna try to be...
And he preached love and brotherhood uhhuh
He went around doing good doing good
Everywhere he went they knew that he was sent
And the people started acting like they should
And I'm gonna try to be...
Yes I'm gonna try to be...
