It's A Great Life (If You Don't Weaken)

Faron Young

(Audrey Allison - Joe Allison - Faron Young, CAPITOL, 1953)

Well it's a great life if you don't weaken but who wants to be strong

Well I don't guess I'll ever make a million I just want enough to get by
Like a checking account in two or three banks and a yellow Cadillac to drive
To go sporting around with two or three red-heads or maybe take a blonde along
It's a great life if you don't weaken but who wants to be strong

[Solo]

Just give me my money and cold hard pension give my guitar in tune
And get me a date with a pretty little thing and I'll be markin' afternoon
No want more than anybody else just takes more for me to get along
It's a great life if you don't weaken but who wants to be strong

[Solo]

It's a simple thing in life that really matter and I'm a pretty simple guy
Just give me a house a swimming pool and a little sport plane to fly
It don't take much to satisfy me I'm a country boy tryin' to get along
It's a great life if you don't weaken but who wants to be strong
