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 outweigh the bad

Well I've rocked my babies at night when they cried
I've seen the teardrops turn into smiles
And that's when I realize all the bad luck I've had
And I know all the good things outweigh the bad

Well I never have riches 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 outweigh the bad
Well I've rocked my babies...

Yes I've worked the cotton in the heat of the day
And then paid the landlord nearly all that I made
Well I've seen high water take all that I had
But I still think the good things outweigh the bad
Well I've rocked my babies...
