Disc B-3. Little Ol’ Life
© words & music by Carl Reed 2014

Album Note:  This song by Carl is one of our favorites.  Besides having a
catchy tune, it contains some real wisdom about finding out what really
matters in “this little old life.”

Lyrics:

Everything about my daddy’s life was ordinary
Fame and fortune never came his way
The best thing that he ever had was the loving wife he married
He’d hold my momma close and softly say

  This little ol’ life, it just suits me fine
  And this little ol’ house, well at least it’s mine
  My little ol’ dreams have all come true
  ‘Cause of little ol’ love and little ol’ you

All the years my Daddy spent just trying to earn a living
Are years that I spent trying to get ahead
Struggling to be content with what I had been given
And trying to believe the words he said    CHORUS

Now from high atop my rocking chair I gaze out on the lessons
That a lifetime of living’s meant to show
How all I really needed was your love to bring me blessings
And time, to make me wise enough to know     CHORUS
