Lyrics to Good To Be Alive in the Country[]

Written by: KEN TOBIAS[1]

Appeared in: "Road to Nashville"

It's a good morning for getting up,
I'm singing and I'll write a song.
Nothing can go wrong
and it's getting better.

Spring time is hanging in the air,
and summer, it won't be long.
I got no clothes on but I don't care,
I'm happy where I belong.

And it's good to be alive in the morning,
to feel the sunshine warming up your face, yeah.
And you can hear the cattle bawl down behind the well.
I'm so glad that I'm living in the country.

I better put my clothes on,
'cause Michael'll (originally Martha'll)soon be here.
And I'm so full of cheer,
he (she) won't believe it.

He promised to take me into town,
so I better go warm up the car.
But, you know, it's not really very far
we both could walk, yeah!

And it's good to be alive in the morning,
to feel the sunshine warming up your face, yeah.
And you can hear the cattle bawl down behind the well.
And I'm so glad that I'm living in the country.

And it's good to be alive in the morning,
to feel the sunshine warming up your face, yeah.
And you can hear the cattle bawl down behind the well.
And I'm so glad that I'm living in the country.

It's good to be alive in the morning,
to feel the sunshine warming up your face.
You can hear the cattle bawl down behind the well.
I'm so glad that I'm living in the country.

EDITED from the original. After listening 100 times, I hear the voiced bilabial plosive sound “b” (bawl), and not the voiceless velar plosive sound “k“ (call « I can hear the cattle call», as it was erroneously written before).

Wagner pronounces /bɑːɫ/ (General American).
