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
