Well I ain't a-got my child-hood

Or friends I once did know

Hey hey so I guess I'm doin' fine.

An I've never had much money
But I'm still around somehow
No I've never had much money
But I'm still around somehow
Many times I've bended
But I ain't never yet bowed
Hey hey so I guess I'm doin' fine.

Trouble oh trouble
I've trouble on my mind
Trouble oh trouble
Trouble on my mind
But the trouble in the world, Lord
Is much more bigger than mine
Hey hey so I guess I'm doin' fine.

An' I never had no armies
To jump at my command
No I ain't a-got no armies
To jump at my command
But I don't need no armies
I got me one good friend
Hey hey so I guess I'm doin' fine.

      C                       Dm7
I been kicked an' whipped an' trampled on
       C       Dm7       C   Dm7 G
I been shot at just like you
       C                      Dm7      C
I been kicked an' whipped an' trampled on
       Dm7     G         C
I been shot at just like you
But as long as the world keeps turnin'
I just keep turnin' too
Hey hey so I guess I'm doin' fine.

Well my road might be rocky
The stones might cut my face
My road might be rocky
The stones might cut my face
But there's some folks ain't got no road at all
They gotta stand in the same old place
Hey hey so I guess I'm doin' fine.
