“Take It Easy” Travis Tritt ft. The Eagles

Lyrics:

Well, I’m a runnin’ down the road
Tryin’ to loosen my load
I got seven women on my mind
Four that want to own me

Two that want to stone me
One says she’s a friend of mine
Take it easy
Take it easy

Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
Drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don’t even try to understand

Just find a place to make your stand
And take it easy
Well, I’ve been standin’ on a corner
In Winslow, Arizona

Such a fine sight to see
It’s a girl, my Lord
In a flatbed Ford
Slowin’ down to take a look at me

So come on, baby
Don’t say maybe
I got to know if your sweet love
Is gonna save me

We may lose and we may win
But we will never be here again
So open up I’m climbin’ in
And take it easy

Well, I’m a runnin’ down the road
Tryin’ to loosen my load

I got a worlds of trouble on my mind
Lookin’ for a lover
Who won’t blow my cover
She’s so hard to find

Take it easy
Take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
Make you crazy

Come on, baby
Don’t say maybe
I got to know if your sweet love
Is gonna save, me

Oh, we got it easy
We ought to take it easy

“It’s A Great Day To Be Alive” Travis Tritt

Lyrics:

I got rice cooking in the microwave
I got a three day beard I don’t plan to shave
It’s a goofy thing but I just gotta say, hey,
I’m doing alright

Yeah I think I’ll make me some home-made soup
I’m feeling pretty good and that’s the truth
It’s neither drink nor drug induced, no,
I’m just doing alright

And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shining
When I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good

It’s been fifteen years since I left home
I said good luck to every seed I’d sown
Gave it my best and then I left it alone
I hope they’re doing alright

Now I look in the mirror and what do I see
A lone wolf there staring back at me
Long in the tooth but harmless as can be
Lord I guess he’s doin’ alright

And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shining
When I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good

Sometimes it’s lonely, sometimes it’s only me
And the shadows that fill this room
Sometimes I’m falling, desperately calling
Howling at the moon, ah-ooh, ah-ooh

Well, I might go get me a new tattoo
Or take my old Harley for three day cruise
Might even grow me a fu man chu

And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shining
When I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good

And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shining
When I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good, ah-ooh, oh yeah

“Where Corn Don’t Grow” Travis Tritt

Lyrics:

As we sat on the front porch
of that old grey house where I was born and raised.
Staring at the dusty fields
where my daddy worked hard everyday.
I think it kinda hurt him when I said,
“Daddy there’s a lot that I don’t know.
But don’t you ever dream about a life
where corn don’t grow?”He just sat there silent
staring at his favorite coffee cup.
I saw a storm of mixed emotions in his eyes
when he looked up.
He said “son I know at your age
it seems like this ole world is turnin’ slow.
And you think you’ll find the answer to it all
where corn don’t grow.”Hard times are real
there’s dusty fields no matter where you go.
You may change your mind
cause the weeds are high where corn don’t grow.I remember feeling guilty
when daddy turned and walked back in the house.
I was only 17 back then
but I thought that I knew more than I know now.
I can’t say he didn’t warn me
this city life’s a hard row to hoe.
Ain’t it funny how a dream can turn around,
where corn don’t grow.Hard times are real
there’s dusty fields no matter where you go.
You may change your mind
cause the weeds are high where corn don’t grow.You may change your mind
oh the weeds are high where corn don’t grow.
