good enough for me
the wonder of it all

surrounded by your loved ones you take it all as read

you take it all for granted it’s so easy to forget

but how do you handle it

when suddenly they’re not there any more?

well I guess that’s what the country song is for

 

you feel the pain of leavin

when a woman breaks your heart

it’s a different sort of grievin

but it still tears you apart

you wonder where you’ll find the strength

to live another day away from her

well I guess that’s what the country song is for

 

I guess that’s what the country song is for

dryin your eyes - kissin the place where it was sore

when the world seems cold and empty

and you don’t believe redemption can be yours

well I guess that’s what the country song is for

 

we’re livin in the darkest times everybody needs a way

to help us back across the line until it seems okay

it’s different for everyone

a smile - a prayer - whatever works for you

and I guess that’s what the country song can do

 

I guess that’s what the country song can do

show you some hope - throw you a rope pullin you through

in a world that’s gettin harder

we need some help to start our hopes anew

and I guess that’s what the country song can do

 

I guess that’s why the country song lives on

shielding the blows - letting you know you’re never alone

it’s a whole new kind of frightening

when the world can’t tell the right thing from the wrong

and I guess that’s why the country song lives on
