I've been sittin' here thinkin' back over my life
All of the good things the trouble and strife
Well my share of heartache yes so many I've had
But I still think the good things outweight the bad

Well I broke my babies at night when they cry
I've seen the teardrops turning to smiles
And askin' if real life all the bad luck I've had
And I know all the good things outweight the bad

Well I never have britches no money to spare
Just a sharecropper's wages is my only fare
Yes makin' my livin' just working the land
But I still think the good things outweight the bad

Well I broke my babies...

[ banjo ]
Yes I outwork the catton in the heat of the day
And then pay the landlord nearly all that I may
Well I've seen how water take all that I had
But I still think the good things outweight the bad

Well I broke my babies...
