‘Pretty Good’ —  words and music by Beth Wimmer, 2017

 

VERSE…

i don't want the latest phone - i don't need more plastic stuff

filling up my humble home - i got way more than enough

and i'm crying when i see you wasting precious food

i’m trying to be mindful… and i'm doing pretty good

 

VERSE...

forty souls lost yesterday trying to climb a wall of freedom

forty-thousand on the way to heaven's gate from malnutrition

and we're shouting out - power don't do what it should!

you're beautiful for trying, love…  and you're doing pretty good

 

CHORUS...

pretty good is not half bad - when you look at the whole world

hey i do the best i can to help righteousness unfurl in my neighborhood

and i'm doing pretty good

 

beautiful guitar solo.... :)

 

VERSE..

so i'm playing my guitar and like me she shows her age

she'll never be a star, never play the greatest stage 

and it takes courage… singing proud through old cracked wood

she's not as pretty as she once was, but she's doing pretty good

 

CHORUS...

pretty good is not half bad when you look at the whole world

hey i do the best i can for one guitar-playing girl

pretty good is not half bad when you look at the whole world

yeah we do the best we can to help righteousness unfurl in our neighborhood

and we're doing pretty good ……      hey in our neighborhood

and we're doing pretty good
