Now I know how Merle Haggard felt when he sang the words "Mama Tried"
And I lived those teenage Friday nights with "a pyramid of cans in the pale moonlight"
And that summer Becky broke my heart, Alabama sang "Old Flame Burning"
Well, I've danced with George Strait, drank with George Jones
My life's been a country song

It's all about falling down and getting back up
Yeah, good times and hard luck
True love and amazing grace
Working all week for a back ache
Raisin' cane on Friday nights
Sunday church to set it right
They can write it on my stone
My life's been a country song

Now I know how Paycheck felt when told his boss to 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 turning"
Through the good and the bad, the right and the wrong
My life's been a country song


It's been the words when I couldn't find 'em, a friend when I've been alone
It's been a toast to the things remembered, the strength for moving on


Oh, my life's been a country song
