​Good Enough For Me

This song is by Delana Stevens and appears on the album Welcome To My World (2007).

Spent most of my life feelin' tied down
In this one stoplight, one horse town
Couldn't wait to get out
And see what the world had in store for me

'Cause with no good jobs and no good pay
I was thinkin' New York or even LA
Or a million other places that I'd rather be

When I turned eighteen I packed and hit the road
Drivin' that Pontiac just as fast as it would go

1st Chorus

Off to a better place and a better life
I could leave those old dirt roads behind
Make a brand new start in a place I've never seen
Yeah, there might be times I'll have hard days

It's still gonna storm, still gonna rain
But I'll take it as it comes 'cause I believe
Oh, it ain't Heaven
But it's good enough for me

Spent the next three years just scrapin' by
Workin' two jobs, askin' myself why
This asphalt hell used to look so good to me

With no room to breathe and no place to park
Ain't safe to leave home after dark
And the place I'm livin' ain't the one they show on TV

Ain't it funny how a change of pace can change your mind
Make you miss that simple life you left behind

2nd Chorus

Back in a better place and a better life
Far away from these city lights
Where a neighbor waves when they pass you on the street
Where a friend still lends a helpin' hand

Best you try bein' a workin' man
And God and family they still believe
Oh, it ain't Heaven
But it's good enough for me

So late one night I packed and hit the road
Drivin' that Pontiac just as fast as it would go

Tag Chorus

Back to a better place and a better life
Far away from these city lights
Where a neighbor waves when they pass you on the street
Where a friend still lends a helpin' hand

Best you try bein' a workin' man
And you don't know what you've got until you leave
Oh, it ain't Heaven
But it's good enough for me
Good enough for me
