lyrics

I was passing through some winnebago wilderness when I bumped in to a stranger with eyes full of forgiveness. I said Im sorry sir I know your life has been no bed of roses. So please accept my apologies so we can put this mess behind us.

He said friend, are you all right? And does your mind keep you up at night?
It's true that youve got to be kind, oh but dont go lying down so fast if you really want to thrive. Like when life just hands you lemons, and you dont know what to say, you just slap life in the face and tell it to make your lemonade. Say yeah I may be broke right now but I aint nobody's slave, life youll work for me and not the other way.

So I headed back to Georgia to the local superstore when the sweetest southern bell ive seen greeted me at the door. She said time has had his way with me but if I could I'd help you more. But now old regrets and my loneliness are all that I can afford.

And I said friend, are you alright? And does your mind keep you up at night? It's true that we're all going to die. But death is not the end, it's just another part of life. You'll leave your cares behind with all those red curb restrictions. Stand up proud and dance around. Throw your debt upon your children. And yourll meet up with old friends who've joined the saintly congregation, and like a snow globe on antique shelf, you just cant help but shake it!
