  • My muffler's tied on with a guitar string
    I owe seven thousand dollars to a bank machine
    Before this car is ever really mine
    And some fine day I'll drive her downtown
    Get a burger, fries and a royal crown
    Thankin' God that I'll never have to pay another dime

    My life is like a lemon drop
    I'm suckin' on the bitter to get to the sweet part
    I know there are better days ahead

    I got dirty shirts and worn out jeans
    I owe two dozen quarters to a washin' machine
    Before these clothes will ever really shine
    But I got me a man, that just don't care
    If his little darlin's got underwear
    I know someday I'm gonna be his wife

    My life is like a lemon drop
    I'm suckin' on the bitter to get to the sweet part
    I know there are better days ahead

    I got thrift store curtains in the windows of my home
    I'm payin' for a house that the landlord owns
    Bought a TV on a credit card
    It'll take me ten years to pay if off
    But some fine day I'll be drinkin' a beer
    In a big backyard I own free and clear
    All I know, there's better days ahead

    So I play my hopes and play my dreams
    Just like two coins in a slot machine
    Sing "Glory, Hallelujah" if everything works out fine

    My life is like a lemon drop
    I'm suckin' on the bitter to get to the sweet part
    I know there are better days ahead

    Lord, I know there are better days ahead
    Thank God Writer/s: Angaleena Presley, Ashley Monroe, Miranda Lambert
