I'm so sick of time passing by. Tired of it leaving me behind. Looking out the window. Watching summer turn to winter. Looking at my wife look theirs a grey hair. Waving it off what's the bother to late to care. I'm just a simple man with good intentions. Another farmer that has been a father. I'm keep getting older as my young keep growing. All my children are anxious for a license. I just to tale a little breather when these times have hit my family. This turn of earth just keeps on changing. I know this is how it goes.

Chorus I didn't sketch this out I didn't create it. Just lucky enough to have it be given. From carnival rides to baseball diamonds. The preachers sermon. To the New York mountains. And all the rest I haven't forgotten. All the little that tells me I exist. I've known them the best.

I just want to remember everything as it was. But I guess the world has different plans for us. Each day i get older as the children keep growing. I think back about when I wasmy childrenjust in different shoes. Thanking God about what's come true.Then i pray for the youth of this nation cause I know that there ain't no future without them to.Asking God in the night if hes git to answer my requests. Every turn i make on my knees he answers with a politeyes.I know hes listening. When i whisper.

Chorus I didn't sketch this out I didn't create it. Just lucky enough to have it be given. Yes along grace had had it priviliges. From carnival rides to baseball diamonds. The preachers sermon. To the New York mountains. And all the rest I haven't forgotten. All the little that tells me I exist. I've known them the best.

I'm thankful That the USA belongs to you and me. I love to live this life. In America Been born to love. With my brothers and sisters standing by. All the family members that are still alive. Thankful that they stand for my support.

ChorusI didn't sketch this out I didn't create it. Just lucky enough to have it be given. From carnival rides to baseball diamonds. The preachers sermon. To the New York mountains. And the rest man if havent forgotten. All the little blessingsthat tells me I exist. I've known them the best.

Tried to make itbig thought I could play by the books. Now I look back and laugh at it now. I guess Gods got a way of showing his grace. I've got my past and I've hadmy hauntings. But at least I know I've also been forgiven. Man I love my wifes eyes. Like the blue sunrise. Man I love this life. Been livin on love all along.

Chorus I didn't sketch this out I didn't create it. Just lucky enough to have it be given. From carnival rides to baseball diamonds.To the preachers sermon andthe New York mountains.Much more memories I haven't forgotten.The beatifulness and walking on the beach. This little thingstell me that ive had full life. And im lovin it. My family of faith that i have raised I've known them the best.

Oh And when I'm feeble and old and my bones can't hold.Wont even know who brought the bed below thatis soft on my head. God taps on my shoulder and tells me it's over. I just got to walk through the gates of splender. A place known as heaven. With My last breathes Ill tell him gladly, I have loved this life. Been livin to love everyone.
