There are several versions of this song. This one by Waylon Jennings.

Lyr. Add: Ride Me Down Easy
Sung by Waylon Jennings

Chorus:
(D)Hey ride me down easy, Lord, (G)ride me on down
Leave (A)word in the dust where I (D)lay
Say I'm easy come, (G)easy go
And (A)easy to love when I (D)stay.

1
(D)The highway she's a hotter than (G)nine kinds of hell
The (A)rides they're as scarce as the (D)rain
When you're down to your last shuck with (G)nothing to sell
And (A)too far away from the (D)train.
2
(D)Been a good month of Sundays and a (G)guitar ago
Had a (A)tall drink of yesterday's (D)wine
Left a long string of friends, some (G)sheets in the wind
And some (A)satisfied woman be(D)hind
3
(D)I've put snow on the mountain, raised (G)hell on the hill
I locked (A)horns with the devil him(D)self
Been a rodeo (G)bum, a son of a gun,
And a (A)hobo with stars in his (D)crown.

Lyr. Add: Ride Me Down Easy
David Allan Coe

Chorus:
Hey ride me down easy, Lord, Ride me on down
Leave word in the dust where I lay
Say I'm easy come, easy go
And easy to love when I stay.
1
This old highway is hotter than nine kinds of hell
And the rice is as scarce as the rain
When you're down to your last shuck with nothing to sell
And you're too far away from the train.
2
It's been a good month of Sundays and a guitar ago
I had a tall drink of yesterday's wine
Left a long line of friends, some sheets in the wind
And some satisfied women behind.
3
I've seen fire on the mountain; I raised hell on the hill
I locked horns with the devil himself
I've been a rodeo bum; I'm a son of a gun
And a hobo with stars in his crown.

Correction- Last line of Jennings' verse 2:
Women, not woman

The Ian Scott Massie website has his poetry.
"Ride Me Down Easy" does not seem to fit in with his compositions.
