I could watch this video over and over (and I do some days).

Although lauded for his songwriting, singing, and playing of multiple instruments (very well), Darrell Scott is a recent find for me (through R Plant's Band of Joy). Travis Tritt did a version of this tune, which I wasn't crazy about, but I stumbled on this video a while back.

Enjoy.

It's a Great Day to Be Alive

I got rice cooking in the microwave
I got a three day beard, I don't plan to shave
And it's a goofy thing but I just gotta say, I'm doing all right
I think I'll make me some homemade soup
I'm feeling pretty good and that's the truth
It's neither drink nor drug induced, no I'm just doing all right

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
It's hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't everyday be just this good

It's been fifteen years since I left home
Said good luck to every seed I'd sown
Gave it my best, then I left it alone
I hope they're doing all right
Redbird, redbird what do you see?
He says, 'I see a lone wolf looking at me
Head in the clouds but harmless as a tree
I guess he's doing all right'

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
It's hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't everyday be just this good

Sometimes it's lonely
Sometimes it's only me and the shadows that fill this room
Sometimes I'm falling, desperately calling, howling at the moon
Aaaaaoooooooooo

It's a colorful life that we go through
It's neither black or white, nor just shades of blue
......Maybe I'll grow me a fu man chu

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
It's hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't everyday be just this good

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
It's hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't everyday be just this good

Darrell Scott is one great songwriter. You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive is so haunting:

This is a great "happy song" I even sort of likes Travis T's version.....

My "feel good" songs are
Southbound
Scarlet begonias _ Grateful Dead
Red House -Jimi Hendrix
Pride and Joy- SRV

all these songs make me have Perma-grin !!

Thanks for the original clip in the post, good tune

Mine is "A Room With A View" by Death Angel (beautiful acoustic tune IMHO)
