If money grew on hackberry trees, 
And time wasn't such a luxury, 
If love was lovesick over me, 
That'd be alright. 

If I could keep the wind in my sails, 
Keep a hold of the tiger by the tail, 
A half a ham sandwich in my lunch pail, 
That'd be alright. 

Yeah, that'd be alright. 
That'd be alright. 
If everybody, everywhere, 
Had a lighter load to bear, 
And a little bigger piece of the pie. 
We'd be livin' us a pretty good life, 
And that'd be alright. 

Hey, go heavy on the good and light on the bad, 
A hair more happy and a shade less sad. 
Turn all the negative down just a tad, 
That'd be alright. 

If my dear ol' dog never got old, 
If the family farm never got sold. 
If another bad joke never got told, 
That'd be alright. 

[Chorus: x3]

Yeah, that'd be alright. 
That'd be alright. 

Yeah, that'd be alright. 
That'd be alright.

That'd be alright.
