Blake Shelton – I Lived It


I’d go back there right now
In a different language you might not understand

Just taking my mind on a visit
Unless you lived it
Wouldn’t dream of spending that two dollar bill
Drove me around in the back of that truck
Oh, you think I’m talking crazy

Them old Duke boys, they’re flattening their heels
Oh, that’s alright
And I ain’t making this up
We all survived somehow
From pushing a lawnmower around
Back in time ’cause I miss it
Uncle Joe put tobacco on my hand where
[Verse 1]
That’s just the kind of life that made me who I am
Them yellow jackets torn me up
Mama poured grease in a Crisco can
Just taking my mind on a visit
Granny said the dress that my sister wore
Daddy drove the wheels off a flatbed Ford
Unless you lived it

And man, I lived it
That’s just the kind of life that made me who I am
Flies found a hole in the old screen door
And man, I lived it
[Chorus x2]
Oh man, I lived it
In a different language you might not understand
Oh, you think I’m talking crazy
You wouldn’t know to love it like I love it
We drank from the hose and spit in the cup
You wouldn’t know to love it like I love it
To church wasn’t long enough
Oh, that’s alright
[Verse 2]
Granddaddy smoked Salems with the windows up
Hollywood was fake, wrestling was real
Back in time ’cause I miss it
[Chorus]
Put a hundred thousand miles on a Sears box fan
