Lucky That Way

Album: Analog Man (2012)
  • I'm not saying that I'm something special
    But you might know my name to some degree
    Sometimes I can't believe that I'm still standing
    And it feels pretty good to be me

    I get to live out here in California
    I got a palm tree and a swimming pool
    Have some fun and try to play my music
    Was all I really said I could do

    And if anybody asks me, Joe how do you do it
    'Cause you do it with such style and grace
    I just shake my head and smile
    Look 'em in the eyes and say
    I'm just lucky that way, just lucky

    Got a good woman and she makes me happy
    Most of the time I make her happy too
    We decided we should live together
    So we both said 'I do'

    And when someone says, hey Joe, I saw you on TV
    And how do you know what to play
    I just shake my head and smile
    Look 'em in the eyes and say
    I'm just lucky that way

    Started in the middle of nowhere
    I didn't have far to fall
    And the times I thought were the end of the world
    Didn't turn out so bad after all

    Yeah, I started in the middle of nowhere
    I didn't have far to fall
    And the times I thought were the end of the world
    Didn't turn out so bad after all

    I'll let you all in on a little secret
    If I can share with you a thing or two
    If you just act like you know what you're doing
    Everybody thinks that you do

    And when anybody asks me, Joe, how do you do it
    'Cause you do it with such style and grace
    I just shake my head and smile,
    Look 'em in the eyes and say
    I'm just lucky, I'm just lucky
    I'm just lucky that way
    I'm just lucky that way
    I'm just lucky Writer/s: JOE WALSH, TOMMY LEE JAMES
