I'm Gonna Try To Be That Way Lyrics

(Johnny Cash)
© '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...
