  • Girl, I would dial your number without lookin'
    And you'd always pick it up as soon as it rang
    And I'd hear you say, "I hear my momma comin'"
    And you'd hide the phone up underneath the sheets

    And I'd hear her say, "Girl, haven't I told you?
    Yeah, I know who you're talkin' to"

    "And it's that bad boy
    It's that wrong side of the tracks boy
    That break your heart and won't come back boy
    Why's that boy the one you love?"
    You're not that bad boy

    You weren't scared but you had every reason
    Me and my boys were nothin' short of dangerous
    But you said, "Boy, you know I've heard you talked to Jesus
    How's a tough guy like you afraid to love?"

    "You ain't so bad, boy
    You've done some things you can't take back, boy
    But I see straight through that boy
    And that boy's the one I love
    And you ain't so bad boy
    No, you ain't so bad
    Ain't so bad"

    Well I remember sittin' down beside your momma
    My hands shakin' in my pocket with that ring
    She said, "Boy, I always knew you loved my daughter
    She loves you too and I think I know what she sees"

    "So alright, bad boy
    [?] don't come back, boy
    You know that's how she lost her dad, boy
    And that boy is the one I loved
    He was my bad boy
    He was my bad boy
    Yes, you ain't so bad
    Yes, you ain't so bad, boy"
