That's The Way Life's Supposed To Be
Lyrics
Sittin' on the front porch, watching life go by
Never had a notion, never found a reason why
Taking it easy, strumming an old guitar
It's the way life's supposed to be

Sip a little bourbon, maybe a glass of beer
Play some music with my friends, the songs we hold so dear
Have a little barbecue, some laughs and a good cry
It's the way life's supposed to be

Chorus
It's the way life's supposed to be
In this sleepy little town
Our own little paradise
That I've finally found
Good fun, good music, good neighbors, and good friends
It's the way life's supposed to be

Start the work in the morning, finish the chores by three
Take a nap in the hammock, underneath the old birch tree
Wake up to some bluegrass music playin' on the radio
It's the way life's supposed to be

Chorus

Instrumental

I like to take things easy, take them one at a time
Take it slow, don't you know, you can stop it on a dime
So I'll just hang out on my front porch and watch the world go by
It's the way life's supposed to be

Chorus

It's the way life's supposed to be
It's the way life's supposed to be
