lucky man

well I sure ain't rich
I ain't exactly broke
got some loyal friends
I know a lot of nice folks
I try to live my life
by no one else's plan
I'm a lucky man

I got a girl back home
she sings me songs
I could watch her walk up and down the hall
all day long
she loves me for
who I really am
I'm a lucky man

I got two great kids
they don't ask for much
they're out there living their lives
but they keep in touch
I give them both a hug
whenever I can
I'm a lucky man

and all those righteous in the distance
they don't know where I stand

I got a few more years
no time for tears
I'm a lucky man
yeah, I'm a lucky man
