Happy Does

Album: Here and Now (2020)
  • Ol' Sunaco Charlie drives an '87 Harley
    Sells gasoline and what you drink 8 to 3 AM
    Got a tattoo for the Corps and ex-wife number 4
    Hummin' along, schoolin' ya on the songs on his station
    He could be another one cussin' the government, no, but he smiles
    Got hundred reasons not to, but he's the poster child for

    Happy is as happy does
    Grab a six-string, find a rope swing
    Hang a palm tree in your truck
    Drink a beer just because
    Steal a slow dance in a rainstorm
    And a kiss from who you love
    Laugh and live with a half-full cup
    Yeah, happy is as happy does

    Some find it in the scripture or a Polaroid picture
    Or flip a coin, heads, you're goin' to Tucson, Arizona
    But it damn sure ain't in the lookin' back on the stuff you never did
    Sometimes you're gonna feel that, but life is better when

    Happy is as happy does
    Grab a six-string, find a rope swing
    Hang a palm tree in your truck
    Drink a beer just because
    Steal a slow dance in a rainstorm
    And a kiss from who you love
    Laugh and live with a half-full cup
    'Cause, happy is as happy does

    She's a long way from the old her
    In this mountain dive in Boulder
    Every pickle jar, crinkled dollar takes her another mile high

    Happy is as happy does
    Grab a six-string, find a rope swing
    Hang a palm tree in your truck
    Drink a beer just because
    Steal a slow dance in a rainstorm
    And a kiss from who you love
    Laugh and live with a half-full cup
    When it's all black clouds, find the sun
    'Cause, happy is as happy does
    Happy is as happy does
    Laugh and live with a half-full cup Writer/s: Brad Clawson, Greylan Egan James, Jamie Paulin, Robert Brock Berryhill
