MAYBE THE GOOD LIFE

I GO TO WORK EVERY DAY, AND I'M THANKFUL
I STILL GOT A JOB TO GO TO 'CAUSE SO MANY DON'T
OH AND I KNOW, THAT MAYBE SOMEDAY
I COULD WATCH MY LIVELY HOOD JUST UP AND WALK AWAY
GIVEN TO A MAN WHO'LL DO THE JOB FOR LESS
'CAUSE THE ONE WE PUT IN OFFICE SAYS IT'S BEST

FOR THE HOMELAND, BUT IT'S GETTIN' HARD
TO PAY THE BILLS AND PUT GAS IN THE CAR
WE'VE BEEN LIVIN' IN THE GOOD LIFE FOR SO LONG
MAYBE THE GOOD LIFE, IS GONE

OH, IS IT JUST ME
OR DOES SOMEONE ELSE SEE WHAT I SEE
ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS TAKE A LOOK AROUND
IN JUST A HUNDREN YEARS,
WE'VE BUILT HER UP AND BROUGHT HER DOWN

AND STARTED OUT WITH STEEL - MADE IT'S WAY TO OLDS MOBILE
MAN IT'S A CRYIN' SHAME - NOBODY KNOWS WHO TO BLAME
WE COULD BLAME IT ON OUR UNCLE SAM
MAYBE HE DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN - ABOUT THE AMERICAN, ANY MORE

HERE IN THE HOMELAND - WHERE IT'S GETTIN' HARD
TO PAY THE BILLS AND PUT GAS INTO THE CARS
WE'VE BEEN LIVIN' IN THE GOOD LIFE FOR SO LONG
MAYBE THE GOOD LIFE, IS GONE

OH, IS IT JUST ME
OR DOES SOMEONE ELSE SEE WHAT I SEE
ALL YOU'VE GOT TO DO IS TAKE A LOOK AROUND
IN JUST A HUNDREN YEARS,
WE'VE BUILT HER UP AND BROUGHT HER DOWN

WE'VE BEEN LIVIN' IN THE GOOD LIFE FOR SO LONG
MAYBE THE GOOD LIFE, IS GONE
WE'VE BEEN LIVIN' IN THE GOOD LIFE FOR SO LONG
MAYBE THE GOOD LIFE, IS GONE
