Song Description

A country song exemplifying the challenge of every working father: balancing family and work. With the hook, "I don't live to work, I work to live this way," the song is sweet, funny, and a favorite at shows.

Story Behind the Song

I was thinking a lot about how difficult it must be for fathers to balance work and family. The challenge being that men want to do well in order to support their families, but then find themselves at the office all of the time and away from those they lo

Lyrics

LIVE THIS WAY
BY FELICE KELLER & KEN JOHNSON

VERSE
WELL I LEFT WORK A LITTLE EARLY TODAY
TO COACH MY SON?S BASEBALL GAME
ALL DECKED OUT FROM HIS CLEATS TO HIS CAP
I SAID A LITTLE PRAYER AS HE STOOD UP TO BAT
MY WIFE WAS THERE CHEERING, RIGHT IN THE FRONT
TO SEE HIS INFIELD HOMER ON AN ACCIDENTAL BUNT

CHORUS
WE?RE GONNA KEEP ON KEEPIN? ON THIS WAY
AND I WORK AS HARD AS I CAN, ?CAUSE WE GOT BILLS TO PAY
BUT I WON?T STAY LATE
AND MISS SCHOOL PLAYS
LITTLE LEAGUE GAMES
OR MY LITTLE GIRL?S BALLET
WHEN TUESDAY COMES AROUND BABE
I?M GONNA KEEP THAT DATE
?CAUSE I DON?T LIVE TO WORK, I WORK TO LIVE THIS WAY

VERSE
I COULD TELL SHE WAS TIRED WHEN I WALKED THROUGH THE DOOR
I SAID WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR
I?LL FEED THE KIDS AND HELP ?EM WITH THEIR MATH
LET ME GET YOU SOME WINE AND DRAW YOU A BATH
A STORY OR TWO, THEN WE?LL TUCK ?EM IN TIGHT
BUT THEY WON?T BE SLEEPIN? WITH US TONIGHT

CHORUS

BRIDGE
THEY?LL BE NIGHTS I PUT IN OVERTIME
I JUST WANNA GIVE YOU ALL YOU NEED
BUT I KNOW IT?S TRUE THE BEST THINGS MONEY CAN?T BUY
SO I?M PROMISING YOU BABY

CHORUS (2X)
WE?RE GONNA KEEP ON KEEPIN? ON THIS WAY
AND I?LL WORK AS HARD AS I CAN, ?CAUSE WE GOT BILLS TO PAY
BUT I WON?T STAY LATE
AND MISS SCHOOL PLAYS
LITTLE LEAGUE GAMES
OR MY LITTLE GIRL?S BALLET
WHEN TUESDAY NIGHT COMES AROUND BABY
I?M GONNA KEEP OUR DATE
?CAUSE I DON?T LIVE TO WORK, I WORK TO LIVE THIS WAY
