Alan Jackson Lyrics

12. To Do What I Do



I've been a waiter, a roofer, a clerk 
I've shoveled manure till my pride hurt
When you're starting out, it's all part of the work 
To do what I do
I've been evicted for not making rent 
Made my Daddy wonder where my good sense went
For the price of a dream, my years have been spent 
To do what I do

So I stand here tonight with this six string guitar 
To be something I've always been in my heart
Just for the chance to play you my song 
The thrill when I hear you singing along
It's been worth everything I've been through 
To do what I do

I've played for empty tables and chairs 
The drunks that don't listen, the crowds that dont care
Been told countless times Boy you ain't goin' nowhere 
To do what I do

So I hope the critics and skeptics alike
All bought a ticket to this show tonight
And they'll see firsthand that I have survived 
And what doesn't kill you makes you more alive
And I'm one of the fortunate few 
To do what I do

There's so much joy this music can bring 
So I count my blessings when I step up to sing
Cause they're so many people who would give anything 
To do what I do

And I thank you
I can do what I do
