Lyrics

‘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
