​Life Is Like That

This song is by Memphis Slim, Sonny Boy Williamson I and Big Bill Broonzy and appears on the compilation Alan Lomax: Blues Songbook (2003).

This song is a cover of "Life Is Like That" by ​Memphis Slim.
You've got to cry a little
Die a little, well and sometimes you got to
Lie a little
You know life is like that
When that's what you got to do
Well if you don't understand, people I'm sorry for you

Sometimes you be held up
Sometimes held down
Sometimes your best friend don't even want you around
You know, life is like that
When that's what you got to do
Well if you don't understand, people I'm sorry for you

Sometimes you'll be helpless
Sometimes restless
Just keep on struggling
So long as you're not struggling
You know life is like that
When that's what you gotta do
Well if you don't understand, people I'm sorry for you
