"I'm Doin' Alright" as written by Melvern Rivers Ii Rutherford, Donald N. Van Zant and Johnny Roy Van Zant....
I got a spot in the country
I got a dog in the yard
I got a beat-up Chevy
Rust kinda rough but she starts

I got my granddaddy's shotgun
I can shoot pretty good
I got a nice little garden of weeds
Tucked back up in the woods

And I'm doin' all right, livin' my life
You got yours and I got mine
Yeah, it may not look like much to you
But it's simple and it suits me fine

Yeah, the sound of the rain and a lonely old train
Listen to that engine whine
Cause I am what I am and I sleep good at night
And I'm doin' alright

I got a front porch for pickin'
I got a national guitar
I got some lightnin' for sippin'
I've had about a jar

I got a pretty old lady
She's good at stretchin' a dime
In this little corner a-heaven mister
We have a helluva time

And I'm doin' all right, livin' my life
You got yours and I got mine
Yeah, it may not look like much to you
But it's simple and it suits me fine

Yeah, the sound of the rain and a lonely old train
Listen to that engine whine
Yeah, I am what I am and I don't give a damn
And I'm doin' alright

All the rats in the city
Are livin' out of a box
They look down their nose, at my life, I suppose
And I just laugh my country ass off

Yeah, I'm doin' all right, livin' my life
You got yours and I got mine
Yeah, it may not look like much to you
But it's simple and it suits me fine

Yeah, the sound of the rain and a lonely old train
Listen to that engine whine
Cause I am what I am and I sleep good at night
And I'm doin' alright
Yeah, I'm doin' alright, doin' alright
