"My Biggest Claim To Fame"

I was speedin' down the highway with the country station on,
And Tim was singin' something about livin' 'til you're gone.
I wasn't really listenin', I was caught up in the pace,
My life out of control, so many things to chase.
Then I heard that line about a bull named 'Fu Manchu',
And I thought to myself, 'Man, he's talking about you.'

Don't let me waste another hour,
Or ever turn my back on love.
Help me be a better neighbor,
And let me do some of those things
I was always braggin' of.
Let me leave the world a better place
Than when I came.
May a life well-lived
Be MY BIGGEST CLAIM TO FAME.

I was sittin' at the airport, cup of coffee in my hand.
So far this trip ain't goin' exactly like I planned.
The weather's bad, the plane's delayed.
I'm stuck here on the ground.
When on the speaker system,
I hear an angel's sound.
There was LeAnn hopin'
That I'd someday learn to dance.
It hit me like a ton of bricks-
This may be my last chance.

Don't let me waste another hour,
Or ever turn my back on love.
Help me be a better neighbor,
And let me do some of those things
I was always braggin' of.
Let me leave the world a better place
Than when I came.
May a life well-lived
Be MY BIGGEST CLAIM TO FAME.

Don't let me waste another hour,
Or ever turn my back on love.
Help me be a better neighbor,
And let me do all of those things
I was always dreamin' of.
Let me leave the world a better place
Than when I came.
May a life well-lived
Be MY BIGGEST CLAIM TO FAME.

Yeah, a life UNlived, well now...
That would be a shame.
