One Of Those Lives

Album: This Is Country Music (2011)
  • Rush hour traffic
    Always puts me in a bad mood
    I got chewed out by the boss today
    And now I'm stuck on highway ninety two

    Then you call me on my cell phone
    While I'm cussin' out a Cadillac.
    You say remember Tom and Jenny's little boy?
    Well, the doctors say the cancers back

    Man its been one of those days
    When I been thinking poor me
    I got no right to complain I guess
    Cause right now all I can see

    Is a little angel in a Yankees cap
    It makes me realize
    It's just been one those days for me
    But for him it's been one of those lives

    Everybody under my roof
    Is healthy knock on wood
    Oh but I sure do sweat the small stuff
    I don't thank God as much as I should

    Tonight I'm thinking about Tommy and Jenny
    And how they spent the last four years
    All those extended stays in Memphis
    All the sleepless nights, the prayers, the tears

    It's just been one of those days
    I was thinking poor me
    I got no right to complain I guess
    Cause right now all I can see

    Is that family moving back to their house
    It makes me realize
    It's just been one those days for me
    But for them its been one of those lives

    It's been one of those days
    I let things get to me
    I got no right to complain
    Cause when I look around I see

    Folks that are fightin' for every breath
    It makes me realize
    It's just been one for those days for me
    But for them it's been one of those lives Writer/s: KELLEY LOVELACE, LEE MILLER, BRAD PAISLEY
