The Good Things Out Weigh The Bad

print

I’ve been sitting here thinking back over my life
All of the good thing the trouble and strife
Well my share of heartaches yes so many I’ve had
But I still think the good things out weigh the bad

Well I’ve rocked my babies at night when they’d cry
I’ve seen the teardrops turn into smiles
And that’s when I realize all the bad luck I’ve had
And I know all the good things out weigh the bad

Well I’ve never had riches or money to spare
Just a share croppers wages is my only fare
Yes making my living just working the land
But I still think the good things out weigh the bad

Yes I worked the cotton in the heat of the day
And then paid the landlord nearly all that I’d made
Well I’ve seen high taxes take all that I had
But I still think the good things out weigh the bad
