[Verse 1]
Well I work for the city
In the town where I grew up
Some days I run a backhoe
Some days I run a dump
If I had other plans on my graduation day
Then several years ago I guess
I hauled 'em all away
Yeah I hauled 'em all away

[Verse 2]
She told me she was pregnant
On the day I turned 18
I did what you're supposed to do
I bought her a ring
He didn't have to ask us
But he asked us anyway.
We stood up and said "I do"
What else were we gonna say?
What else were we gonna say?

[Chorus]
Well I'm thankful for the things I have
And all the things I don't
And I've got dreams that will come true
And I've got some that won't
Most of the time I just walk the line wherever it goes
'Cause you can't hang yourself
If you ain't got enough rope

[Verse 3]
My boss man is mad
I did just what he asked
I mowed the courthouse lawn
Watched the prisoners walkin' past
I'm happy to be working
Instead of wearin' chains
Like my cousin Willy
He's locked up in La Grange
He's locked up in La Grange

[Chorus]
But I'm thankful for the things I have
And all the things I don't
And I've got dreams that will come true
I've got some that won't
Most of the time I just walk the line wherever it goes
'Cause you can't hang yourself
If you ain't got enough rope

[Verse 4]
There's a tavern down the highway
I go to drink some beers
And wash down all I'm missin'
By hangin' around here
Then I drive back to the trailer
I make up with my wife
I kiss my sleeping children
And I get on with my life
Yeah I get on with my life
