Back

Album: Declaration of Independence (2012)
  • Yeah back
    When life was simple as that
    I didn't know I'd miss it so bad
    When this whole world had way less worries, nobody in a hurry and back
    To mama's home cookin' and dad
    Was baitin' my hook and I'm sitting on a tailgate,
    Thinking 'bout those days just
    Wish I was
    Back

    When I think about how it used to be, Lord it was so simple then
    Dirt-bike and a fishin' pole at a fishin' hole with all my friends
    Nothin' better than a BB gun in my backyard just huntin' squirrels
    Took a ring from my mama's drawer and gave it to this little girl
    Her mama called mine and then my daddy had to have a talk
    I remember like yesterday what he said when we took that walk
    "Son don't you ever tell no lie, even if the truth burns"
    Everyday my mind goes back to all those lessons learned
    And I wanna go

    Back
    When life was simple as that
    I didn't know I'd miss it so bad
    When this whole world had way less worries, nobody in a hurry and back
    To mama's home cookin' and dad
    Was baitin' my hook and I'm sitting on a tailgate,
    Thinking 'bout those days just
    Wish I was
    Back

    I remember that Texaco that Mr. Logan used to own
    They turned it into something else and Mr. Logan's long gone
    My best friend David, he grew up ridin' in that wheelchair
    Thought I'd give a million bucks if that old boy was still here
    Ain't it funny how time goes by and memories seem to fade away
    They built a parking lot on the baseball field we used to play
    That skating rink is closed down, but now I see us back again
    I remember those all night skates, very first dates and my old friend

    Back
    When life was simple as that
    I didn't know I'd miss it so bad
    When this whole world had way less worries, nobody in a hurry and back
    To mama's home cookin' and dad
    Was baitin' my hook and I'm sitting on a tailgate,
    Thinking 'bout those days just
    Wish I was
    Back

    My dad's gettin' older now but son he's still as tough as ever
    Him and my little boy are best friends now, wish it could last forever
    My mama is still the one I talk to when I need advice
    She never ever let me down
    God what will I do when she's not around

    Back
    When life was simple as that
    I didn't know I'd miss it so bad
    When this whole world had way less worries, nobody in a hurry and back
    To mama's home cookin' and dad
    Was baitin' my hook and I'm sitting on a tailgate,
    Thinking 'bout those days just
    Wish I was
    Back

    When life was simple as that
    I didn't know I'd miss it so bad
    When this whole world had way less worries, nobody in a hurry and back
    To mama's home cookin' and dadWriter/s: Colt Ford, Michael D Hartnett, Noah A Gordon, Shannon C Houchins
