  • If I were a NASCAR man going 'round and 'round
    Yeah, you know I'd be number three
    If I were the best damn football in the south
    I'd be the SEC
    And if I were a Velcro stitched up stars and stripes
    You can bet I'd be flying proud
    Or pressed on the chest of America's best
    Putting bad dudes in the ground

    And if I were rock 'n' roll
    I'd be a middle finger in your face
    If I were a lost soul
    I'd be in church more than just Sundays
    And if for some reason I was Jesus
    I'd have a lot of forgiving to do
    And if I weren't a fool
    Girl, I'd still be with you

    If I were a granddaddy rocking on a rocking chair
    I'd have a grandson on my lap
    If I were a first time there, front porch stare
    I'd pray she kissed me back
    If I were a rebel kid meeting with the man
    Hearing Johnny Don't Do That
    With a guitar strapped, I'd go all black
    Tell 'em all to kiss my ass

    If I were rock 'n' roll
    I'd be a middle finger in your face
    If I were a lost soul
    I'd be in church more than just Sundays
    And if for some reason I was Jesus
    I'd have a lot of forgiving to do
    And if I weren't a fool
    Girl, I'd still be with you
    Yeah, I'd still be with you

    If I were a smart man
    I wouldn't just write you a song
    Straight from the heart and
    And pray you turned it on
    I know I'd step it up and I'd mean it
    When I look into your eyes
    And I'd be on my way to Denver
    And I'd be holding you tonight

    And if I were rock 'n' roll
    I'd be a middle finger in your face
    If I were a lost soul
    I'd be in church more than just Sundays
    And if for some reason I was Jesus
    I'd have a lot of forgiving to do
    And if I weren't a fool
    Girl, I'd still be with you
    Yeah, yeah, I'd still be with you
    I'd still be, oh, I'd still be with you
    I'd still be, oh, I'd still be
    Oh, I'd still be with you
    Yeah, I'd still be with you Writer/s: Chase Rice
