Song Lyric Thursday – August 21 2008

Returning to regular programming, today I’m presenting my weekly Song Lyric Thursday.  Regular readers might recall my Song Lyric Thursday about The Pursuit of Happiness and how Blue Rodeo opted out of the free show that Bryan Adams decided to put on in Canada Olympic Park in Calgary in the summer of 1991.

Well, this week’s Song Lyric Thursday continues a streak of featuring Canadian artists with none other than Blue Rodeo.  I always thought that it was odd for a band from the center of the known universe (aka Toronto, Ontario, Canada) to have the word “Rodeo” in their name.   The Wikipedia article claims Blue Rodeo is a Canadian country rock band, which just goes to show how useless and uninformative labels like that are.  In spite of the labels the band has released some pretty good tunes over the years.

This week’s Song Lyric Thursday is “Try” by Blue Rodeo.  I’ve included a link to a youtube clip of the band performing this song.  Enjoy!

Try
Performed by Blue Rodeo

Don’t tell me I’m wrong,
‘Cause I’ve been watchin’ every move that you make.
Hearts you steal, in your make up and heels
Trouble for the man that you take.

Every time you walk in the room
I couldn’t ever be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice,
I’m fallin’ in love
Oh, night after night – oh it’s crazy…ooh

So many people who said, ooh
Girl you got nothing but time
Oh you are a shinin’ star
Don’t worry what you’re leavin’ behind.

Every time you walk in the room
I couldn’t ever be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice,
I’m fallin’ in love
Oh, night after night – oh it’s crazy…

Oh you got to try. Try. Try.
Ah don’t you know you’ve got to try,
Try. Try. Try. Oooh
Oh baby you try, oh.

SOLO

Every time you walk in the room
I couldn’t ever be sure of a smile
You were never the same way twice,
I’m fallin’ in love
Oh, night after night – oh it’s crazy…

Oh you got to try. Try. Try.
Ah don’t you know you’ve got to try,
Try. Try. Try. Oooh oh baby you try, oh woah woah try, oh woah woah
