In 2019 the song leaked online after the fan Rick Dunsford who bought a storage unit packed with unreleased recordings owned by the ex-A&R executive Tom Zutaut who signed Guns N’ Roses to Geffen Records. The band later bought the recordings back from Dunsford.

Now the tune was officially released by the group. They are currently on tour with three original members Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan.

Lyrics

All cautions made, every chance was given
No effort spared to save what we had
All in good faith I would not hesitate
To extend myself and lend you my hand

But you had to play it cool, had to do it your way
Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away
Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
If that were true, it wouldn’t matter anyway

As tempers fade and lies forgiven
No cause embraced could break what we had
In its place a storm is liftin’
I would’ve thought you could be more of a man

But you had to play it cool, had to do it your way
Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away
Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
If that were true, it wouldn’t matter anyway

But you had to play it cool, had to do it your way
Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away

Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
If that were true, it wouldn’t matter anyway
Had to play it cool, had to do it your way

Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away
Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
If that were true, it wouldn’t matter anyway

Had to play it cool, had to do it your way
Had to be a fool, had to throw it all away

Too hard school and you thought you were here to stay
If that were true, it wouldn’t matter anyway

I am a Brazilian journalist, a Classic Rock and Heavy Metal lover. Music has always been part of my life, helped me through tough moments and was with me to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After college I did a postgraduate degree in digital communication. This has helped me to make the website better and bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
