"I Can Get By" as written by and Clint Patrick Black....
In a simple life dreams die hard
You never let 'em go
All the while you play your hands
And you may never know

Why it's always lady luck
On someone else's palm they read
You holding my two hands
Is really all I need

I can get by if it all fell through
Right down to the bottom of my list
I can get by lookin' back on life
Find that I've too many things I've missed

I can get by without doing
All the crazy things some people do
But I wouldn't want to try even
Barely gettin' by without you

Many things I've come to need
That I could do without
And many more I've done without
I could come to need

The one thing that I'd fight to keep
Until my days are through
Is when I lay me down to sleep
I'm lyin' next to you

I can get by if it all fell through
Right down to the bottom of my list
I can get by lookin' back on life
Find that I've too many things I've missed

I can get by without doing
All the crazy things some people do
But I wouldn't want to try even
Barely gettin' by without you

I can get by if it all fell through
Right down to the bottom of my list
I can get by lookin' back on life
Finding I've too many things I've missed

Barely gettin' by without you
I can get by if it all fell through
Right down to the bottom of my list
I can get by lookin' back on life

Find that I've too many things I've missed
I can get by without doing
All the crazy things some people do
But I wouldn't want to try even
Barely gettin' by without you
