The Ones Who Got Me Here

Album: All of It (2018)
  • The ones that I drank all those beers with
    Made it through those high school years with
    All those girls I loved who broke my heart
    All those back roads I drove 'round on
    That church pew that I got found on
    That college town where I first got my start

    All the haters, all the lovers
    All the friends that are more like brothers
    All the people I ain't seen in too many years
    All the faces in the bleachers
    Never gave up on me teachers
    Yeah this one's for the ones who got me here

    The ones that said I'd never make it
    The ones that said there's your chance, go take it
    Took all of you for me to get this far
    Jobs along the way that paid me
    People who dug deep to raise me
    Made me who I am, you know who you are

    All the haters, all the lovers
    All the friends that are more like brothers
    All the people I ain't seen in too many years
    All the faces in the bleachers
    Never gave up on me preachers
    Yeah this one's for the ones who got me here

    The ones still around, the ones that are gone
    My biggest fan, Mama back home
    All the truth and all the dares
    All the long shot late-night prayers

    All the haters, all the lovers
    My dad and my two brothers
    All the people I ain't seen in too many years
    And I thank God that I met ya
    Hope you know I won't forget ya
    This one's for the ones who got me here
    Yeah this one's for the ones who got me here, yeah Writer/s: ASHLEY GLENN GORLEY, COLE SWINDELL, JESSE FRASURE
