    A GREAT DAY TO BE ALIVE   Travis Tritt


       G     C            Em  Em   G      
I got rice cooking in the mi-cro-wave
        D                      Em      G
Got a three day beard I don't plan to shave
              G            C              G  
And it's a goofy thing but I just gotta say 
D                 G
Hey I'm doing al-right
G                  C            Em   Em   G
Yeah I think I'll make me some home made soup
D                        Em         G
Feeling pretty good and that's the truth
G                      C       
It's neither drink or drug induced 
D                      G
No I'm just doing al-right.

CHORUS:
              D         Em 
And it's a great day to be alive
             C           Em             C       D
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
              D     D            Em
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
     C                D     Em        Bm   G 
But why can't every day be just this good-ood    "ahhhh yeah"



             G      C         Em      G 
It's been fifteen years since I left home
D                        Em             G  
Said good luck to every seed that I'd sown
G                       C         G    D
Gave it my best then I left it a-lone-lone
D                        G
I hope they're doing al-right
G                     C        Em        G
Now I looked in the mirror oh what do I see
D                    C     Em     G
A lone wolf there staring back at me
G                       C             D
Long in the tooth but harmless as can be
D                           G
Lord I guess he's doing al-right.

Go to chorus
G                        G                         
Sometimes it's lonely  Sometimes it's only  me
          C                        Em     
And the shadows that fill up this room
G                       G    
Sometimes I'm falling  Desperately calling
 Em             Am            G            G
Howling at the moon   aaaaa oooooo aaaaaa ooooo
"yeah yeah" "ahhhh yeah"

Lead
        G                 C    G
Well I might go get me a new tattoo
    D                    Em         G
Or take my Harley for a three day cruise
             G        C       G      
Might even grow me a Foo Man chu  "wo aaak"

Go to chorus, chorus,

Aaaaaa ooooooo (<---- wolf howl)
