  • I've got a number on a napkin, a poundin' in my head
    Takes everything I've got to crawl out of bed
    I lost a hell of a woman, freedom caught me on the chin
    But I'm doin' alright for the shape I'm in.

    The sun came up again this morning.
    I got a call from a long lost friend.
    Planned us a little road trip down to New Orleans.
    It ain't much but it beats where I've been.

    Yea I'm doin' alright,
    I'm doin' alright,
    I'm doin' alright for the shape I'm in.

    Well I'm gettin' better at barely gettin' by
    When I look at her picture I don't break down and cry.
    And all this time on my hands it's gettin' easier to spend
    Cause I'm doin' alright for the shape I'm in.

    The sun came up again this morning,
    I took my old fastback for a spin.
    Now when it rains it ain't always pouring
    And I'm learning how to live again

    Yea I'm doin' alright,
    I'm doin' alright,
    I'm doin' alright for the shape I'm in.

    Yea I'm doin' alright,
    Yes I'm doin' alright,
    Yea I'm doin' alright for the shape I'm in.

    Yes I'm doin' alright,
    Yea I'm doin' alright,
    Yea I'm doin' alright for the shape I'm in. Writer/s: Ben Hayslip, Dallas Davidson, Rhett Akins
