about

A fun tune that’s also a tongue in cheek look at how hard life can be with an attempt to look on the bright side (“Gotta walk everywhere…I don’t have a car, least I’m not lost ‘cause I can’t go very far”). In the chorus, this song is also a reminder that no matter how hard life gets “Every single day here is a gift that I have. Better than the option …six feet below the land”. Can we find optimism in the face of a difficult life?

lyrics

There’s a ’44 Ford
on the floor of my basement
might be in parts
but I don’t have a payment

Gotta walk everywhere
I don’t have a car
least I’m not lost
‘cause I can’t go very far


It’s a hard life to handle
but I’ll live it as I can
Every single day here
is a gift that I have
Better than the option
six feet below the land


Got a place to rest
a shack by the river
It’s nice down here
but I’m not a good swimmer

Might be a bit drafty
there’s holes in the roof
can tell if it’s raining
if I’m looking for proof


It’s a hard life to handle
but I’ll live it as I can
Every single day here
is a gift that I have
Better than the option
six feet below the land


If I need a vacation
just walk down the road
a great place there
based on stories I’ve told

There’s a strong hammock
a hot campfire
Think I can live there
if things got dire


It’s a hard life to handle
but I’ll live it as I can
Every single day here
is a gift that I have
Better than the option
six feet below the land
