Grew up on a tight rope Learned to smile even when I was falling down Daddy had a hard hand, and Mama always had hope
And me and my sister couldn't wait to get out

Fell in love out of college Good man for a bad year Visions of sugarplums and boxes of roses All my girlfriends cried, and I was outta here

Whoa, whoa, everybody's dreaming big
Whoa, whoa, everybody's just getting by
That's how it goes in every day America A little town with a great big life

Joey stares at a trophy Took us all the way to state back in '85 Shining moment and a dusty reminder
He felt so scared, never felt so alive But now there's toys in the backyard Daddy's boys; you know how they like to fight When they sleep, he swears they're angels He wouldn't trade a day for all those Friday nights 
Whoa, whoa, everybody's dreaming big
Whoa, whoa, everybody's just getting by
That's how it goes in every day America A little town with a great big life

We can laugh We can cry
We're all just looking for the reasons why
In a place of dark can we see the light Either way it'll be alright 
Whoa, whoa, everybody's dreaming big
Whoa, whoa, everybody's just getting by
That's how it goes in every day America A little town with a great big life

Whoa, whoa, everybody's dreaming big
Whoa, whoa, everybody's just getting by
That's how it goes in every day America A little town with a great big life

A little town with a great big life
