  • I woke up early with a poundin' in my head
    I'd been out the night before with all my friends
    A little worried, kinda wonderin' what I did
    I said, " Lord, please forgive me for my sins."
    My wife wanted to kill me, but she tried to save me first
    "You're goin' if I have to drag your butt to church."

    I love this crazy, tragic,
    Sometimes almost magic,
    Awful, beautiful life

    I read the hymns and kinda sorta sang along
    And made it through the Sunday sermon wide awake
    We met the family for dinner at our home
    Drank some beer, watched a game, and cooked some steaks
    My little brother had a big fight with his wife
    And my poor mother sat between'em both all night

    I love this crazy, tragic,
    Sometimes almost magic,
    Awful, beautful life

    We said a prayer for Cousin Michael in Iraq
    We're all aware that he may never make it back
    We talked about the way we missed his stupid jokes
    And how he loved to be a soldier more than most

    I laid in bed that night and thought about the day
    And how my life is like a roller coaster ride
    The ups and downs and crazy turns along the way
    It'll throw you off if you don't hold on tight
    You can't really smile until you've shed some tears
    I could die today or I might live on for years

    I love this crazy, tragic,
    Sometimes almost magic,
    Awful, beautful life

    I love this crazy, tragic,
    Sometimes almost magic,
    Awful, beautful life

    Alright
    It's a beautiful life
    Awful, beautiful, life
    I love this life
    It's a beautiful life Writer/s: DARRYL WORLEY, HARLEY ALLEN
