I Go Back

In the style of

Kenny Chesney

Lyrics

jack and diane
painted a picture
of my life
and my dreams

suddenly
this crazy world
made more sense
to me

well i heard it today
and i couldn't
help but
sing along
'cause every time
i hear that song

and i go back
to a two-tone
shortbed chevy
drivin' my first love
out to the levee
livin' life
with no sense of time

and i go back
to the feel
of a fifty-yard line
a blanket a girl
some raspberry wine

wishin' time
would stop
right in its tracks
every time
i hear that song
i go back i go back

well i used to rock
all night long
to keep on
rockin' me baby

at frat parties
college bars
just tryin'
to impress
the ladies

well i heard it today
and i couldn't
help but
sing along
'cause every time
i hear that song

and i go back
to the smell of
an old gym floor
and the taste of salt
on a carolina shore
after graduation
and drinkin' goodbye
to friends

and i go back
to watchin'
summer fade to fall
growin' up too fast
and i do recall

wishin' time
would stop
right in its tracks
every time
i hear that song
i go back i go back

we all have a song
that somehow
stamped our lives
and takes us
to another
place and time

so i go back to a pew
preacher and a choir
singin' 'bout god
of brimstone and fire
and the smell of
sunday chicken
after church

and i go back
to the loss
of a real good friend
and the
sixteen summers
i shared with him
now only
the good die young

stops me
in my tracks
every time
i hear that song
i go back i go back

to the feel
of the fifty-yard line
a blanket a girl
and some
raspberry wine
i go back

to watchin'
summer fade into fall
growin' up too fast
and i do recall
i go back

to the loss
of a real good friend
and the
sixteen summers
i shared with him

i go back
i go back
i go back
ooh
