Now I can sing you the storyline
And if you like my story fine
But ain't none of the glory mine
See my life was a lonely one
And I was still Momma's only son
With no idea what I'm gon' become
And I didn't have long to know
That you don't have to be grown to go
I could have died so long befo'
Then I finally saw the sign
And I made it on down the line
One step at a time

I feel better!
I can smile at it now, I feel better
Oh, better!
And even a little is still better
Oh, have mercy on me

Oh it's probably plain to see
That I got a whole lot of pain in me
And it will always remain in me
So cold, it's a cryin' shame
Yet here I am, tryin' again
Cause I refuse to die in vain
The circumstances put soul in me
And there ain't no holdin' me
I've got a heart made of gold in me
Ha, can you believe this is where I've been?
And when adversity comes again
I'll deal with it then

I feel better! I can laugh at it now, I feel better, heh heh
Oh, better!
And even a little is still better
Oh, have mercy on me-he

Ah-ah-hah-ah yeah
Mmm, oh-oh-oh!

I said everything's fine, you can take your time
What would be on your mind, if you knew you was dyin'
I would wanna just feel this ah-one more time
I said everything's fine, take yo' time
What would be on your mind, if you knew you was dyin'
I would wanna just feel this ah-one more time
I wanna thank you morning sun
I wanna thank you lowly dirt
Now I know I'm not the only one
I, I wanna thank you friendly ghost
When all the calls were close
It seems like you cared the most
I, I wanna thank you Mom and Dad
For hurtin' me so bad
But you're the best I ever had
I, I wanna thank you
