About You Can Make It If You Try

"You Can Make It If You Try" is a song written by Ted Jarrett and recorded by Gene Allison in 1957. In 1958, Allison's recording peaked at No. 3 on the U. S.

The song has been covered by other artists, including The Rolling Stones (on their 1964 self-titled debut album), Gene Vincent (on his 1971 album The Day the World Turned Blue) and Buddy Guy (on his 1980 album Breaking Out ). In 1969, Sly and the Family Stone included a funk version of the song with different lyrics on the album Stand!.

You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try
Whoa, yeah
You can make it if you try

Sometime, you'll have to cry
Sometime, you'll have to lie
You're gonna live until you die
Whoa, yeah
You can make it if you try

If your baby treats you wrong
Don't go around singing the blues
Remember, my friend
Everybody can't win
Somebody, somebody's got to lose

You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try
Whoa, yeah
You can make it if you try
