Corey Smith - The Good Life

rate me

I'm sittin alone in my three-bedroom home

A mile east of where I was raised

Starin out the window at my dog in the backyard

In the pine straw covered with clay

Damn he's a mess but we love him to death

I guess he fits in this family well

Yea we're a bloodline of shepherds used to roamin the pastures

Tryin to cope with this suburban hell

It sure ain't the good life we're livin, but I reckon we're happy enough

We've done well with the hand we were given, with a little hope and a whole lotta love

Dad just finished buildin it must have cost him a killin

That house out on Rambler's Inn

He sent my brother off to college, walkin through the arches

Man we're all sure proud of him

But he never tried to spoil us, kept our hands in the saw dust

Yea we chipped in whenever we could

And we shared in the sweat and the blood and the tears

I guess he knew it would do us some good

It sure ain't the good life we're livin, but I reckon we're happy enough

We've done well with the hands we were given, with a little hope and a whole lotta love

No we don't have our fists full of dollars and we're no southern aristocrats

No we ain't got a lot but we've earned what we got

And we couldn't do it much better than that

My wife quite her job, now she's workin full time

Takin care of the baby and me

And I'm playin in the bars tryin to pay off the debts

Lord this half acre didn't come cheap

I come draggin in three and four in the mornin

Smell like tobacco and rum

Still she wakes up to greet me cause she loves me completely

Says she's proud of the star I've become

It sure is a good life we're livin, yea I reckon we're happy enough

We've done well with the hand we were given, with a little hope and a whole lotta love

No we don't have our fists full of dollars and we're no southern aristocrats

No we ain't got a lot but we've earned what we got

And we couldn't do it much better than that

I hope ole St. Peter will have me when they throw my coffin in the back

When that hearse rolls away I hope all ya'll will say

He couldn't do it much better than that
