My Life's Been a Country Song
by Chris Cagle



Verse One:
Now I know how Merle Haggard felt when he sang the words mama tried
And I've lived those teenage Friday nights the pyrmid of cans in the pale moon light And that Summer Becky broke my heart
Alabama sang old flame burnin'
Well I've danced with George Strait
Drank with George Jones
my life's been a country song.

Chorus:
It's all about fallin' down and gettin' back up
Your good times and hard luck
True love and amazing grace
Workin' all week for a back ache
Raisin' caine, Friday nights, Sunday church to set it right
They can write it on my stone,
My life's been a country song.

Verse Two:
Now I know how Paycheck felt when he told his boss he can take his job and shove it
And I've had the girl that made me say
'I like it, I love it, I want some more of it'
And I'll always remember just where I was when the world stopped turnin'
Through the good and the bad,
The right and the wrong
My life's been a country song.

Chorus:
It's all about fallin' down and gettin' back up
Your good times and hard luck
True love and amazing grace
Workin' all week for a back ache
Raisin' caine, Friday nights, Sunday church to set it right
They can write it on my stone
My life's been a country song.

Bridge:
It's been the words when I couldn't find 'em.
A friend when I've been alone.
It's been the toast to things to remember, the strength for movin on...

Chorus:
It's all about fallin' down and gettin' back up
your good times and hard luck
True love and amazing grace
workin' all week for a back ache.
Raisin' caine, Friday nights, Sunday church to set it right.
They can write it on my stone
my life's been a country song.

oh my life's been a country song.
