Lucky to Be Here
by Montgomery Gentry



I'm not one to whine or cry or wallow in self-pity
I take life in stride and smell the roses when I can
I am one of those lucky guys who's happy just to be here
Doin' what I love and thankful that I am

With all of life's temptations
And this dream that I've been chasin'
It's a wonder I ain't long since dead and gone
I've cheated undertakers, dang near met my maker
I'm tellin' ya'll I'm lucky to be here at all

My hard head, the cigarettes and straight Kentucky Bourbon
Have taken their toll and done their best to do me in
Guitars and beer joint bars up and down the highway
If I could start all over, I'd do it all again

With all of life's temptations
And this dream that I've been chasin'
It's a wonder I ain't long since dead and gone
I've cheated undertakers, dang near met my maker
I'm tellin' ya'll I'm lucky to be here at all

And when I die I'll thank the good Lord face to face
For his patience and grace

With all of life's temptations
And this dream that I've been chasin'
It's a wonder I ain't long since dead and gone
I've cheated undertakers, dang near met my maker
I'm tellin' ya'll I'm lucky to be here at all
