  • I think honesty is right think lying is wrong.
    I think willy and haggard wrote some awful good songs.
    I think god rides around with the radio on in a ragged ole truck just like mine.
    I don't think it's as bad as the newspaper says.
    I think vegas is rigged but then I wouldn't bet on these theories
    And thoughts rollin' round in my head
    Cause they change and they turn on a dime.

    [Chorus:]
    But I know there's a sun and at night there's a moon.
    I get cold in December and sunburned in June.
    This ole world keeps turnin'
    Time it ain't moving it's slow!
    There's a woman that loves me like nobody can.
    She's my reason for livin' the reason I am
    The luckiest man in the world.
    And that's all I know.

    I think taxes are high think politics stink.
    But old uncle Sam don't give a damn what I think.
    And I don't believe worms aughta be in a drink
    But I swallowed once on a dare.
    Think there's only one Beatles and Elvis is dead.
    And I don't believe half of the stuff we been feed
    From the spoons in the hands of those ole talkin' heads
    I'm not even sure that I care.

    [Chorus]

    I've got a family that loves me like nobody can.
    They're my reason for livin' the reason I am
    The luckiest man in the world
    I'm the luckiest man in the world!
    And that's all I know.
    That's all I know
    That's all I know!! Writer/s: JASON MICHAEL CARROLL, PATRICK DAVIS
