People are Crazy

Billy Currington received 3 CMA Music Awards nominations for his chart-topper, "People Are Crazy." Billy's fourth #1 hit was nominated for SINGLE OF THE YEAR, SONG OF THE YEAR & VIDEO OF THE YEAR.

(Bobby Braddock, Troy Jones)

This old man and me, were at the bar and we
Were having us some beers and swaping I dont cares
Talking politics, blonde and red-head chicks
Old dogs and new tricks and habits we aint kicked

We talked about Gods grace and all the hell we raised
Then I heard the ol' man say;
God is great, beer is good and People Are Crazy

He said "I fought two wars,
Been married and divorced
"What brings you to Ohio?
He said "Darned if I know"
We talked an hour or two about every girl we knew
What all we put them through Like two old boys will do

We pondered life an death He lit a cigarette
He said "These darn things will kill me yet;
But God is great, beer is good and people are crazy"

Last call its 2am, I said goodbye to him
I never talk to him again
Then one sunny day, I saw the old mans face
Front page Obituary, he was a millioniare
he left his fortune to some guy he barely knew, his kids were mad as hell
But me, Im doing well
And I drop by today, to just say thanks and pray,
I left a six-pack right there on his grave and i said;

God is great,beer is good, and people are crazy.
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.
God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.
