Call this an epiphany, but Tim McGraw looks at life the way we should all be looking at life on Thanksgiving.

His song “Gravy” — brought to you by the pens of Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin (“The House That Built Me”) and Andy Albert — now has a video to go with it, just in time for the time of year when we’re all counting our blessings. Yes, even this year. It features some classic old home movies of the whole McGraw family.

The song is from McGraw’s Here on Earth album released in August. On Tuesday (Nov. 23), McGraw shared the video on social media. “I know Thanksgiving looks a little different for a lot of us this year. Let’s take care of each other and remember what’s most important in life,” he wrote. “The ones we share it with. Everything else is gravy.”

I know Thanksgiving looks a little different for a lot of us this year. Let’s take care of each other and remember what’s most important in life…. The ones we share it with. Everything else is gravy. Full video out on @YouTube: https://t.co/G3WhcyVzv1#Thanksgiving #Gravy pic.twitter.com/7wgKv5Rali

Full lyrics for “Gravy”:

Call this an epiphany


Seein’ the same things differently


Maybe mama’s prayer caught up with me


Startin’ to get it now


If my window to the world is the evening news


Only song I’ll sing is gonna be the blues


Maybe happiness is a choice you choose


Startin’ to get it now

Got a flatbed Ford and four good tires


Biscuits in the oven, chicken in the fryer


Lights turned on, cable paid


If you asked me, I got it made


If I could hug my kids and kiss my wife


One more day in this crazy life


Take a second to stop and smell the daisies


Everything else is gravy

Got the classics playing on my radio


Promises to keep and miles to go


Still dreaming of the cherry red GTO


Even if I’ll never get it

Got a flatbed Ford and four good tires


Biscuits in the oven, chicken in the fryer


Lights turned on, cable paid


If you asked me, I got it made


If I could hug my kids and kiss my wife


One more day in this crazy life


Take a second to stop and smell the daisies


Everything else is gravy

Starch fresh-pressed Sunday shirt


Dinner after church


Holdin’ hands and prayers are prayed


Hot fried chicken, cold lemonade

If I can hug my kids and kiss my wife


Live one more day in this crazy life


Lay my body down and hold my baby


I know the good Lord’ll save me


Everything else is gravy
