That'd Be Alright
by Alan Jackson



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.

[Chorus]
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.
