“I’m Gonna Try” (prev. unissued) Lyrics

I set the world back on its heel
I’m gonna show you how I feel
Free as a bird up in the sky
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try

Now I am chasing rainbows
But I won’t let that girl know
’Til I have found my pot of gold
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try

And when I feel like turning back and coming home
What could I say without the rainbow and the pot of gold?

Chasing a dream around in the sun
I feel my life has just begun
And if I lose my way, I know
I’ve always got some place to go
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try

And when I feel like turning back and coming home
What could I say without the rainbow and the pot of gold?

Whoa, I set the world back on its heel
I’m gonna show you how I feel
Free as the bird up in the sky
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try
I’m gonna do it, I’m gonna try
