George Strait - The Best Day Lyrics




We loaded up my old station wagon
With a tent, coleman, and sleepin' bags
Some fishin' poles, a cooler of Cokes
Three days before we had to be back
When you're seven, you're in Seventh Heaven
When you're goin' campin' in the wild outdoors
And as we turned off o that old dirt road,
He looked at me and swore

Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout the fun we'll have
It's just me and you doin' what I've always wanted to
I'm the luckiest boy alive
This is the best day of my life

Well, his fifteenth birthday rolled around
Classic cars were his thing
When I pulled in the drive with that old 'Vette
I thought that boy would go insane
When you're in your teens
Your dreams revolve around four spinning wheels
We worked nights on end 'til it was new again
And as he sat behind the wheel, he said

Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout the fun we'll have
It's just me and you doin' what I've always wanted to
I'm the luckiest boy alive
This is the best day of my life

Standin' in a little room
Back of the church with our tuxes on
Lookin' at him I say
"I can't believe, son, that you're grown"
He said

Dad, this could be the best day of my life
I've been dreamin' day and night 'bout bein' like you
Now it's me and her watchin' you and Mom I've learned
I'm the luckiest man alive
This is the best day of my life

I'm the luckiest man alive
This is the best day of my life

  14. KadePearson 44

    I have many of great days through the years but some of the best were when I was younger and me and my dad would go hunting. Even if we never killed or seen any deer those were the best days ever just being out there with him. At the time I thought it was boring sitting there and not seeing anything but looking back I wouldn’t trade those days for anything in the world!

  15. Vintage Ben

    When I was 15 one fall day, I heard a rumbling over the hill where we lived.
    I had wanted a 1986 Chevy Custom Deluxe army (or a CUCV).
    I had wanted one so badly and all of a sudden over that hill was a brand new looking 1986 CUCV. My dad In The front seat. I still drive that old thing!

  16. Christie Chapman

  25. tommy4444

    there is no love comparable to that of a parent and a child they look at you like u know everything bout all of it which feels good cause we dont know shit, but they treat us as if we hung the moon. and the truth is to us they're the coolest thing thats happend in our life. good luck finding any other kinda ignorant bliss in life that tops that. stupid!

    Screwston, Tx

    tommy4444 I have to agree bless you

  26. Dustin Crosley

    my dad was never really around like that he was pretty much always a junkie. but mom tried and now I try even harder to be there for my daughter's. i remember listing to this song as a kid and dreaming of what it would be like to have a dad around who cared. and now seeing my girls laugh and smile while we play i just wonder what he was thinking who would choose to miss this? these are the best days of my life.

  27. Esther

    This is such a sweet song

  28. Pondy Hsu

    We loaded up my old station wagon
