  • If I were down to my last dollar
    Sittin' on an empty tank
    I'd be a dollar richer than I was back in the day
    When I was playin' for tips and compliments
    And half my rent was always spent on beer

    Had a thousand dollar stereo
    In a two hundred dollar truck
    A screwdriver and some cussin'
    Always made her start right up
    But I tore it up one rainy night
    Goin' 'round a curve when I hit second gear
    And I'm just proud to be here

    Yeah I'm just proud to be on the right side of the dirt
    I've been loved and I've been lost and I've been hurt
    I leave the hard stuff up to God
    Try not to worry 'bout a whole lot
    And I have no regrets for what it's worth
    I've been livin' on borrowed time for years
    And I'm just proud to be here

    I'd like to thank my guardian angels
    God must have sent His best
    Heaven knows they worked their wings off
    Keepin' whiskey off my breath
    When I think of all I would have missed
    My wife and kids and all that I hold dear

    Yeah I'm just proud to be here
    Hey I'm just proud to be here

    Yeah I'm just proud to be here
    Hey I'm just proud to be here Writer/s: AARON BARKER, CHRIS WALLIN, IRA DEAN
