Johnny Cash – Let Me Down Easy Lyrics
Let me down easy if you must go why not deceive me it won’t hurt me so
Truth is so painful tell me a lie let me down easy and I’ll get by
Let me down easy for old time’s sake
Is it too much to ask when my heart’s gonna break
I’m bound to lose you I’m bound to cry oh let me down easy and I’ll get by
Let me down easy
