To Be Alive


On the banks of the Cahaba
Watching lilies grow
Or up in West Virginia 
With mountains full of snow
And way down in Texas 
Where the pretty girls all grow
Some folks say I'm crazy
For all the miles I drive
But I'm making the most of this good living
I'm just happy to be alive

We all know there was a time
I was much different than today
Back when I was blind
Before I found my way
When I thought hard living was all there was to being free
Before I found my devil lord
And found out he was me
Now I'm just thankful for each new day I survive
I've been blessed with good living
And I'm happy to be alive

I've had my share of heartache 
If you want, you can read all about it, in a different song
Because I've repented of my sins
And forgiven every wrong
I will be your friend
If it's a friend you need
Because we are all blood brothers
It's all Adam's blood we bleed
And I wake up thankful each new day I survive
I've been blessed with good living
And I'm proud  to be alive

I've been blessed with good living
I'm happy to be alive
