back when i knew it all lyrics – montgomery gentry

at the ripe old age of nineteen
i bought a short bed pick up chicks machine
life ran on beer and gasoline
a half a lap ahead of the law
i had a fake i d that got me into “tuffies”
love was a word i used to get lucky
was a big time spender with that plastic money
back when i knew it all

back when the world was flat and mama and daddy didn’t have a clue
that was back……
back when a pitcher of beer and a couple shots made me bulletproof
back when god was a name i used in vain to get a point across when
i got ticked off
lord i’m learning so much more……than back when i knew it all

i found out credit cards don’t mean you’re rich
and beer and gasoline don’t mix
yeah step side trucks can’t jump a ditch
and those ” big house” rooms sure are small
i’ve learned that love is a woman that will settle you down
a sunday sermon can turn life around
man i can’t believe all the answers i’ve found
since ….back when i knew it all


br…. i’ve done some growing up
and i’m still growing up
so i know i’ll never be as smart as i once was
that was back…….
