I have loved, and I have lived,
And I have had my wild romances,
I've taken all that life can give,
And taken my fair share of chances.

It's been a good life,
Far from the high life,
But I thank God that this is my life.

I know just how it is to win,
And I have felt the pain of losin'
Some paths I chose would end in tears,
But they were all of my own chosin'

It's been a good life,
Far from the high life,
But I thank God that this is my life.

I've known contentment, in a woman's arms,
And felt the warmth of her devotion,
And I've known heartache and a dark despair,
That was as deep as any ocean, but,
We get the strength to carry on,
And build the life of our own makin'

We thank the Lord for each new day,
And for every breath that we are taken'

It's been a good life,
Far from the high life,
But I thank God that this is my life.

(Musical break)

I've known contentment, in a woman's arms,
And felt the warmth of her devotion,
And I've known heartache and a dark despair,
That was as deep as any ocean, and,
Looking back on all the years,
The loss, the sweetness and the sorrow,
Have made me what I am today,
And I'd do it all again tomorrow.

It's been a good life,
Far from the high life,
But I thank God that this is my life.
We can't deny life, how it flies by, life,
But I thank God that this was my life.
