Livin' the Dream

Album: It Feels Good (2015)
  • Everybody say we wouldn't make it baby
    Love don't live around here much lately
    Times are hard and hearts break like the bank,
    Ah yes they do

    Lots of reasons just to give it on up
    Leave your soul on the shelf, collectin' dust
    Livin' a world of broken promises and empty tanks
    Oh but look at us

    Look at us with a picket fence
    Don't got a lot of money but we're making a dent
    Old Ford truck with a dog in the back
    Now ain't we livin' the dream
    Big blue sky, green, green grass
    Ain't doin' half bad for a half full glass
    Kiss me baby yeah just like that now
    Ain't we livin' a dream

    Put on a little old Keith medley
    Back porch dancin' singing with me
    I'm no stranger to the rain, oh no he ain't
    Pour a little bit of homemade wine
    Make some love, take our sweet time
    Why the hell do we complain

    Look at us with a picket fence
    Don't got a lot of money but we're making a dent
    Old Ford truck with a dog in the back
    Now ain't we livin' the dream
    Big blue sky, green, green grass
    Ain't doin' half bad for a half full glass
    Kiss me baby yeah just like that now
    Ain't we livin' a dream, oh yeah, oh baby
    Ain't we livin' a dream

    Look at us we got a life out here
    Outlaws, in-laws, coolers of beer
    A spot on the wall to hang last year's deer
    Now ain't we livin' a dream
    Red white and blue flag hangin'
    Kids in the back, just a tire swangin'
    Fireworks are boom and bangin'
    Now ain't we livin' a dream

    Look at us with a picket fence
    Don't got a lot of money but we're making a dent
    Old Ford truck with a dog in the back
    Now ain't we livin' the dream
    Big blue sky, green, green grass
    Ain't doin' bad for a half full glass
    Kiss me baby yeah just like that now
    Ain't we livin' a dream
    Oh oh, yeah

    They said we'd never make it baby
    Love don't live around here much lately
