Billy Currington - People Are Crazy Lyrics

This old man and me
Were at the bar and we
Were having us some beers
And swapping I-don't-cares
Talking politics
Blonde and red-haired chicks
Old dogs and new tricks
And habits we ain't kicked

We talked about God's 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, "Damned if I know"
We talked an hour or two
About every girl we knew
What all we put 'em through
Like two old boys'll do

We pondered life and death
He lit a cigarette
He said, "These damn things'll kill me yet"

"But God is great, beer is good
And people are crazy"

Last call is 2 AM
I said goodbye to him
I never talk to him again

Then one sunny day
I saw the old man's face
Front page obituary
He was a millionaire
He left his fortune to
Some guy he barely knew
His kids were mad as hell
But me, I'm doing well

And I dropped by today
To just say thanks and pray
And 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

  9. Two Prong

    Vance Lee Sprowls loved this song... hes my big cousin... his 27th birthday was supposed to be February 3rd, 2020. He passed away april 27th, 2019. It would mean more than the world to me if you sang some of his favorite songs by you to my family in person. My name is Justin, im 18, and i live in Oklahoma. Im not really expecting this to happen but if it were to happen then please notify me by youtube somehow. Either way, thank you for making something more than just a song, it may be different to everyone else but to me its a memory... sipping on a cold bud light while laughing and talking across the campfire after a good day of fishing, then hearing him sing this song as it played in the background... He was by far the greatest man ive ever met... Everytime i hear that line "last call was 2 am, i said goodbye to him... and never talked to him again," it just hits me with this burst of pure emotion because the very last time i spoke to him was april 20th, 2019. The last thing i remember him saying was "Love you bub!". He passed exactly a week later on my mom's wedding day... My mom's wedding anniversary will never be like any other anniversary.

    A man Arther thought I was with the Government trying to control his mind. He set his room on fire above my room hoping it would fall onto me. When I went to bathroom saw Smoke under door, this saved My life. People are Crazy... at least beer is good after you loose everything you once owned into flames. The Newspaper Bangor daily news never placed My Name even though I was the target of a suicide attack.

    Why would anybody thumbs down this great track. It rings true for every conversation I had with an old timer except for where I ended talking to a millionaire. There is a wealth of knowledge you can recover from the older generation

  58. Kelly Nikole

    Those type of moments I think are priceless. And would rather hear about stories like this compared to other crap.

  59. Kelly Nikole

    That's what I love most about this world is others that talk about their journey and you being able to talk about yours or thinking about what you'll be talking about at 70.

  60. Kelly Nikole

    You meet people for a reason. I strongly believe that.

  61. jaime monte

    A good song from Mexico hola amigo

  62. MR. FUSON

    God is great, people are crazy for thinking beer is good. It's destroyed many marriages .

  68. marta nika

    One of my favorite songs even though I don’t drink that much but love the story behind this song .
    If people just gave a person a stranger a few moments of a conversation that would make someone’s day for sure .
    God is great beer sucks and it is ok to be crazy lol..,

  69. Ashly Williams

    I love this song, it hits in such a place I can't explain and I practically cry every time I hear it. On a lighter note though it's Billy cute af.

  70. John Bailey

    That guy looks like a dirty bum with the guitar. Is it a new fashion?
    He should go to San Francisco and play with his guitar case open on
    Market Street instead of doing music videos. His case should fill up
    with money rather quickly.

  71. J breezzy

    A great friend of my dads and life long friend to me committed suicide yesterday. A great man gone but never forgotten. I love you Jason Nivens. R.I.P

    denny lee

    My dad shot himself 2 days after Christmas back in that was hard to grow past. I'm sorry about your friend. That ain't never a good situation for anybody that even remotely knew him. I spent a few years asking why....but there aren't answers for that question. I hope you and your dad can look past the wondering why...remember the good times.. and keep chugging away at this ol life. Prayers to you and your dad, brother.

  72. Alvez Talks

    I get it now. So basically what the song is saying is this.

    The old man became a millionaire. He left his money to someone he barely knew and his kids were mad as hell. But he said he's doing great which means the singer got the money.

  73. Lacy Nichols

    Great song

  74. PigRandle McNary

    Sweet song...

  75. neunike morre

    Look, where I was in December!
