The Lucky One

I'd rather be lucky than good, any day.


i’m the lucky one

might not look it but it’s true

i got lucky on the day that i found you

i was lost and i couldn’t find my way

our paths crossed and that was such a lucky day

oh i’m the lucky one

and i have no right to be

maybe together we can cross this raging sea

you’re my star you’re my light upon the shore
you’re my anchor when i just can’t drift no more

and trouble--trouble comes to every man

always waiting with a little trouble in his hand

but the devil’s right behind you gonna chase you up a tree
even find him in the sunshine where your angels ought to be

but i’m the lucky one and i thank the stars above

all of kentucky couldn’t hold all of my love
maybe tomorrow gonna wake up and i’ll say
that it’s it’s just my luck

just my luck

just my luck that’s here to stay
it’s just my luck that’s come my way
