Chris Cagle - My Life's Been A Country Song Lyrics
Now I know how Merle Haggard felt when he sang the words, 'Mama Tried." And I've lived those teenage Friday Nights, "the
pyramid of cans in the pale moonlight." And that Summer Becky broke my heart, Alabama sang "Old Flame" burnin'. I've danced
to George Strait, drank to George Jones, my life's been a country song.
It's all about fallin' down and gettin' back up. You're good times and hard luck. True love and Amazing Grace, workin' all
week for a backache. Raisin' cane, Friday nights, Sunday church to set it right. They can write it on my stone, my life's
been a country song.
Now I know how Paycheck felt when he told his boss to "Take This Job and Shove It." And I've had the girl that made me say,
"I like it, I love it, I want some more of it." And I'll always remember just where I was "When the World Stopped Turning."
Through the good and bad, the right and the wrong, my life's been a country song.
It's been the words when I couldn't find 'em. A friend when I've been alone. It's been a toast to the things remembered. The
strength for movin' on.
My life's been a country song...
