Lyrics:

The Things That Count

When the sun comes up I know it's gonna go back down again
'n I know the name of every picker ever played in Elvis Presley's band
And I know my favorite color is the blues
I know a lotta things but I don't know a lotta things
That are of a lotta use

Late at night when the lights are out I ask myself
What do I know about
Love and God and why we're here and where we're from
And where it is we're bound
I ask myself what do I know about the things that count?

I still wrestle with my demons but I no longer let 'em win
I just tuck my shirt in and serve my nine to five again
And I know I got no reason to complain
I got some good folks in my corner
And a good mind to keep out of the rain

Late at night when the lights are out I ask myself
What do I know about
Love and God and why we're here and where we're from
And where it is we're bound
I ask myself what do I know about the things that count?

I don't know where this life will lead me
I guess I'll see when I will see
I don't know what this life has taught me
Ah, but it's done taught me humility

Late at night when the lights are out I ask myself
What do I know about
Love and God and why we're here and where we're from
And where it is we're bound
I ask myself what do I know about the things that count?
