Better Than That

 

I am a poor man's child

Looking through the window of an uptown store

My head was running wild

Thoughts of the day just walking on through that door

Could have stayed there forever

Maybe get a little 9 to 5 see me through the day

But I was raised another way

Work hard, sing loud, take a chance. daddy says

The world's gonna turn you round

And people they'll bring you down

Your time's gonna move too fast

So take a minute, take a look and laugh

Don't stop when it all goes bad

My love

You know you're better than that

Done my time played those empty rooms

Where the people walk in but they leave just a little too soon

And I have learned to play that game

Now they all sing along and everybody knows my name

Well I am

That girl no more

I took her by the hand and we made it to the that uptown store

The world's gonna turn you round

And people they'll bring you down

Your time's gonna move too fast

So take a minute, take a look and laugh

Don't stop when it all goes bad

My love

You know you're better than that

My love

You know you're better than that

Living In A Country Song 

Sometimes I pray when I lose my way

and I play my ol' six-strig when I got something to say

I'm an old time singer playing honky tonks all over town

I'm an old gunslinger gonna shoot the bad guys down

 

Long gone 

Living in a world

Where music always along.

Summer roads 

Drop top Mustang '65

I come alive in a country song  

I'm fine

Living in a country song

Sometimes I'm born in Tennessee

Sitting on a tailgate red Chevy '53

I'm taking my time with some records I find in a worn out store

they keep on trying but they just don't make it like that anymore

Long gone

Living in a world

Where music always plays along

Summer road

Drop top Mustang '65

I come alive in a country song  

I'm fine

Living in a country song

I'm an old time singer playing honky tonks all over town

I'm an old gunslinger gonna shoot the bad guys down

Long gone

Living in a world

Where music always plays along

Summer road

Drop top Mustang '65

I come alive in a country song  

I'm fine
