Look At What I Have Got
I loaded up my Buick and set out across the muddy river
I had only my smile, my poetry and my faith to give her,
I took a leap of faith, got married; look what I have got
A loving wife, an adoring daughter and a simple lake lot.
Modern city life ain’t always what it is cracked up to be
I need peace and quiet, a diet of that which is truly free,
A sip of hard cider, a kiss close beside her and my tunes
No alarm clocks, a boat on the docks, lazy afternoons.
A ride in the dirt with a side by side, heading to the lake
A basket of fresh cookies that earlier in the day I baked,
I catch some bass; I think of the lass who loves her man
We fillet and fry the catch of the day; yep, that is my plan.
I only look back to remember the nights laying in the cold
Wandering if I would live another day and ever grow old,
The old life can longer dismay me and I am here with Amy
Loving this life, holding my wife and happy to just be me.
I took a leap of faith, am still married, I like what I have got
A loving wife, an adoring daughter and a day at the lake lot!
