Some Folks' Lives Roll Easy
Paul Simon Lyrics


Some folks' lives roll easy as a breeze
Driftin' through a summer night
Heading for a sunny day

But most folks' lives, oh, they stumble
Lord they fall
Through no fault of their own
Most folks never catch their stars

And here I am, Lord
I'm knocking at your place of business
I know I ain't got no business here
But you said if I ever got so low
I was busted
You could be trusted

Here I am, Lord
I'm knocking at your place of business
And I know I ain't got no business here
But you said if I ever got so low
I was busted
You could be trusted

Some folks' lives roll easy
Some folks' lives
Never roll at all, oh
Woah, they just fall
They just fall
Some folks' lives

I know I ain't got no business here
But you said if I ever got so low I was busted

Some folks lives roll easy
Some folks lives never roll at all
Oh, they just fall
They just fall
Some folks lives

This is the the most true song ever!

This song belts out from my soul... and since i started smoking, i can reach the low notes now :) Bellowing this is as satisfying as singing "Great Gig in the Sky" at the top of your lungs. :)

Love it. Great chord progression.

Got all the ideas from Doug's parents. Conversations they had.

Sameh Strauch
