I-I might +never see the light

an' I might +never get it right

but maybe   I can try-y.

 

Don't know if I-I can mend your heart

and give +you a brand new start

but baby, let me try-y.

 

Give me a +chance to ma-ake you happy,

give me a chance to set you free,

I only know, that I don't really know,

but I can try, +please let me try.

 

Can't see the future, can't even guess

if I can e-end your loneliness

but maybe  I can try-y

 

I got a thing or two to say

maybe I'll get you to see it my way,

oh baby, le-et me try-y

 

Oh if I +had a +million dollars

I would bet it all on you

an' if I +only  +ha-ad fore-ever

there's not a thing that I couldn't do.

 

Oh I might +never win the prize,

might never +see love in your eyes,

but maybe I can try-y.

 

Still got a lo-ong way to go,

still got a +whole lot I don't know,

but baby, oh please, let me try-y.

That's some good old-style country in my book. It's very strong on THE Hook, driving home that Line as the title, the main idea, a Refrain-Type Chorus. 
The Lyric and Melody share the Melancholy well. There's an element of hope in the Lyric, saving it from over-sad or hopelessness.

The 'million dollars' Lines are appealing, 'bet it all on you'. They seem to be sung to the same Melody as the Bridge, 'Give me a chance', which repeats at the end. 
It's Structurally 'odd' perhaps, but for the style and Melody and Lyrical storyline, I think it can work. Your repertoire is growing!

Despite 1,000's of years of Songwriting humans have not exhausted the possibilities. There will always be another Song to be written. Someone will write it. Why not you? www.garyeandrews.com

Thanks! I'm glad it sounds like old-style country!
