Grant Bentley: Music

I'm So Lucky I Have You

I wrote this song for Dave Balcom, the former editor of the Inyo Register newspaper, as a present to his wife, Suzie, on the anniversary of their marriage.
The table is set in another small town.
There are boxes still yet to unpack around.
But in the kitchen here
We’re cookin’ the way it should be.

A thankful word said over paper plates
While I get up my nerve before it’s too late
To make it clear
How much you mean to me.
And now I taste all the flavor of home.

CHORUS:
Hey you bring it with you
Wherever you go.
Home is your heart.
And once again it’s true
I’m so lucky; I’M SO LUCKY I HAVE YOU.

The newspaper game is played rough and fast.
It’s just not the same as it was in the past.
When I need to go
The next job just pulls you away.

Our children have found their own places to be
By holdin’ their ground on that highway of dreams
I still follow
After thirty years I’d say.
And where did you find such strength?

REPEAT CHORUS (except replace “bring” with “brought”)

BRIDGE:
And the greatest risk that I can recall
Was the one you chose first of all.

As you took the hand in ’69
Of a big, boyish man who still loves you tonight
And I remember
All of the luck in my life,
All the luck in my life.

REPEAT CHORUS

Wherever you go
Home is your heart.
And once again it’s true
I’m so lucky; I’M SO LUCKY I HAVE YOU.

CODA (repeats three times and fades):
Nah – nah – nah – nah
Nah – nah – nah – nah
I’m so lucky; I’M SO LUCKY I HAVE YOU.
