Learn To Let It Go

This song is by Don Williams and appears on the album One Good Well (1989).

(Writers: Mike Reid, Rory Bourke)

There's a young man, sits by the river
Got his head held down in his hands
There's a lost love in every teardrop
And reasons that he just don't understand.

There's a dirt road that runs by the river
Comes an old man, stepping high
With a soft voice and kind intentions
He said, son you know you're too young to cry
Some things were meant to just roll by.

You've got to learn to let it go,
When love lets you down
Learn to let it go,
So you don't miss the one waiting to be found
With a love that's going to bring you around
Only love is going to bring you around.

--- Instrumental ---

He said, now I know it's hard to imagine
That one day you won't feel so bad.
I know you're going to take comfort
From this experience that I had.
There was a young girl, a raving beauty
I loved her with a love deep and wide
But when I lost her to another
That's when I found the momma of my child
God bless the momma of my child.

You've got to learn to let it go,
When love lets you down
Learn to let it go,
So you don't miss the one waiting to be found
With a love that's going to bring you around
Only love is going to bring you around

You've got to learn to let it go,
When love lets you down
Learn to let it go,
So you don't miss the one waiting to be found
With a love that's going to bring you around
Only love is going to bring you around.

--- Instrumental to fade ---
Got to learn to let it go (x8)
