They got tired of living
and an apple going black
Went up the mad river valley
they never looked back
Way up the mountain
of a cam bell ridge
Up an old logging rope
across an old mill bridge

They built a little house
out of stone they found
Put they’re backs to the plow
and the seeds in the ground
Water from the spring
running plenty and good
From a hard wood forest
chopping fire from the wood

Ooohhh
They’re living the good life
Ooohhh
Living the good life

They got bread in the oven,
got books on the shelf
They’re looking deep into each
others eyes keeping to themselves
Pursuing ideals with
grace and style
And they’re making ends meet
with their huggle belly guile

Ooohhh
They’re living the good life
Ooohhh
Living the good life

Way up the mountain
of a cam bell ridge
Up an old logging rope,
across an old mill bridge
They built a little house
out of stone they found
Put they’re backs to the plow
and the seeds in the ground

The got the power of the sun
and the strength of the soil
Finding peace in their hearts
and faith in their toil

Ooohhh
They’re living the good life
Ooohhh
Living the good life

    General CommentDefinitely appreciate the attempt, but these lyrics are incorrect as well...

    they got tired of livin’ in an apple goin’ black
    went up the mad river valley & they never looked back
    way up the mountain over campbell ridge
    up an old loggin’ road . . ‘cross an old mill bridge

    they built a little house out of stone they found
    put their backs to the plow . . put their seeds in the ground
    water from the spring runnin’ plenty & good
    from a hardwood forest . . choppin’ fire from the wood

    oh . . they’re livin’ the good life
    oh . . they’re livin’ the good life

    they got bread in the oven, got books on the shelf
    they’re lookin’ deep into each others’ eyes & deep into themselves
    pursuin’ ideals with grace & style
    & they’re makin’ ends meet with their huckleberry guile

    oh . . they’re livin’ the good life
    oh . . they’re livin’ the good life

    way up the mountain over campbell ridge
    up an old loggin’ road . . ‘cross an old mill bridge
    they built a little house out of stone they found
    put their backs to the plow and their seeds in the ground
    they’ve got the power of the sun . . the strength of the soil
    they’re findin’ peace in their hearts & faith in their toil

    oh . . they’re livin’ the good life
    oh . . they’re livin’ the good life
    oh . . they’re livin’ the good life
