Better Stories

Album: This Ole Boy (2012)
  • If you never hit a cow at 3 a.m.
    In a borrowed Oldsmobile
    Played cards all night in the county jail
    With the one arm man name Phil

    If you never counted ball off the fifth floor rail
    And do a bull at the Holiday Inn
    'Cause it was Panama City, you were drunk and she was pretty
    The paramedics gave you a prefect ten

    And when we're old and rocking on the porch
    Re-living all our glory
    You might have a few less scars
    But I'll have better stories

    If you never been bitten by a snake in a church
    While you sang "Amazing Grace"
    If you never had to bribe a border guard
    To overlook that one suitcase

    If you never hustle pool in a biker bar
    And had an eight ball break your nose
    Then hit the first Harley with the front of your truck
    Just to watch them all fall like dominoes

    When we're old and rocking on the porch
    Re-living all our glory
    You might have a few less scars
    But I'll have better stories

    If you never been banned from a Taco Bell
    If you didn't fry your nest's egg
    If you never had a doctor say "what the hell?"
    As a little mad nurse climbed out of your bed

    When we're old and rocking on the porch
    Re-living all our glory
    You might have a few less scars
    But I'll have better stories

    You might have both brain cells left
    But I'll have better stories

    I don't even know where half these scars came from
    Somebody remembers though I can't, do you?
    I know this one right here was from that jump across that car
    On that bicycle, you dared me, I did it
    Girls do love scarsWriter/s: MONTY CRISWELL, LARRY MICHAEL WHITE, LEE MILLER
