“It’s a Great Day to Be Alive” is a song written by Darrell Scott. It was originally recorded by American country music artist Jon Randall, of whose version was to have been included on an album titled Great Day to Be Alive, which would have been released in the late 1990s via BNA Records. Scott released his own version of his song on his 1997 album Aloha from Nashville.
The song was also recorded by The Sky Kings, an American country-rock supergroup consisting of Bill Lloyd (Foster & Lloyd), Rusty Young (Poco), and John Cowan (New Grass Revival) around 1995/1996. Their version sat unreleased until Rhino Handmade released the compilation “From Out Of The Blue” in 2000.
The song was later covered more famously by American country music artist Travis Tritt. It was released in December 2000 as the second single from his album Down the Road I Go. It peaked at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart and at number 33 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Travis Tritt – It’s a Great Day to Be Alive Lyrics

I got rice cookin’ in the microwave
Got a three day beard I don’t plan to shave
And it’s a goofy thing but I just gotta say, hey
I’m doin’ alright
Yeah I think I’ll make me some homemade soup
I’m feelin’ pretty good and that’s the truth
It’s neither drink nor drug induced, no
I’m just doin’ alright
And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shinin’when I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t everyday be just this good
It’s been 15 years since I left home
And said good luck to every seed I’d sown
Gave it my best and then I left it alone
I hope they’re doin’ alright
Now I look in the mirror and what do I see
A lone wolf there starin’ back at me
Long in the tooth but harmless as can be
Lord I guess he’s doin’ alright
And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shinin’ when I close my eyes
There’s some 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 fallin’, desperately callin’
Howlin’ at the moon, ah-ooh
Well I might go get me a new tattoo
Or take my old Harley for a three day cruise
Might even grow me a Fu Manchu
And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shinin’ when I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t everyday be just this good
It’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shinin’ when I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t everyday be just this good
