It's A Great Day To Be Alive Chords

Some of the lyrics are different than the popular Travis Tritt version of this song and I think he 
plays it in a different key, but this is the original as it was written by singer/songwriter Darrell Scott. 

      G                   C    G
I got rice cookin' in the microwave
      D                       Em       C 
Got a three day beard I don't plan to shave and it's a 
G     D           Em         C   D    C     G 
Goofy thing but I just gotta say I'm doin alright

Think I'll make me some homemade soup
I'm feelin' pretty good and that's the truth
It's neither drinkg nor drug induced, no
I'm just doin' alright
[ Tab from: ]
           D            Em
And it's a great day to be alive 
           C           G              D        Em
I know the sun's still shinin' when I close my eyes
                D                  Em   
And there's some hard times in the neighborhood 
     C             G      D         C    G
But why can't everyday be just this good

It's been fifteen years since I left home
And said good luck to every seed I've sown
Gave it my best and then I left it alone
I hope they're doin' alright
Now redbird, redbird what do ya see
Said I see a lone wolf lookin at me
Head in the clouds but harmless as a tree
I guess he's doin alright (Chorus)

Em             G
Sometimes it's lonely
                Em   C          G            D         Em
Sometime's it's only me and the shadows that fill this room
Em            G
Sometimes I'm falling
Desperately callin'
C              A         G
Howlin' at the moon....ahoo

It's a colorful life that we go through
It's neither black nor white
Or just shades of blue
I think I'll grow me a foo manchu (Chorus 2x)
