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
