Title: Huntin', Fishin', and Lovin' Every Day 

​Artist: Luke Bryan

Economic Concepts: Income; Standard of Living; Consumption 

Details: Getting paid for your hobby is a dream for most.  In the song the man is quite good at huntin' and fishin', and if he were able to get paid for this he would be quite wealthy.  So much so that prices of daily necessities like gasoline would become irrelevant.  "If I could make a nickel off turning them bass, Never worry bout the price of gas".  This illustrates that higher income leads to higher standards of living.  For those with the highest income, the price of daily necessities like food and fuel become afterthoughts.         

Lyrics
If I could make a living walking in the woods
You could bet I'd be sitting pretty good
High on a hill looking at a field downwind
If I could make a nickel off a turning 'em bass
Never worry about the price of gas
I'd be wheeling and dealing and sitting there reeling 'em in

A huntin', fishin', and lovin' every day
That's the prayer that a country boy prays
Thank God He made me this way
Huntin' and fishin' and lovin' every day
Early in the morning and late in the evening
I'm getting red dirt rich and Flint River pay
Huntin' and fishin' and lovin' every day

Well I'd get a little farm-pond bus
Sound of gravel when I'm backing up
And pulling the string on a nine-point-nine-two stroke
I love it when my baby wants to roll with me
Throws her boots on, climbs in a tree
Tucking her hair in my hat and she's ready to go

We get to huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
That's the prayer that a country boy prays
Thank God He made me this way
Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
Early in the morning and late in the evening
I'm getting red dirt rich, Flint River pay
Huntin' and fishin' and lovin' every day

Well huntin' and fishin' and lovin' every day
I wanna see them tall pines sway

Huntin', fishin', and lovin' every day
That's the prayer that this country boy prays
Thank God He made me this way
Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
Black coffee in the morning and dark of whiskey in the evening
I get red dirt rich and Flint River pay
Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day

Won't you come along with me
Won't you come along with me
I know you'll wanna see
Huntin' and fishin' and lovin' every day
Yeah
