It All Started With a Beer

  • You had a Corona and I was drinking Bud Light
    That jukebox singing every song just right that night
    Something brewing in the air and it was more than just smoke
    Looking back, looking back after two you laughed at all my jokes
    Tonight lets raise 'em up to where we ended up

    There's been highs and lows, fast lane freeways and bumpy roads
    Cursed the devil and prayed to heaven, lost it all and we rolled some sevens
    Been some smiles then there's been tears, been more good than bad years
    Ain't it crazy baby how we got here, oh, it all started with a beer
    Oh, it all started with an ice cold beer

    I didn't have much money but I covered them rounds
    'Cause a pretty girl like you makes a fella throw his money down
    You weren't shooting no whiskey, just shootin' the shit
    I paid the tab we walked out the door, I remember thinking this was it
    Yeah you were it

    There's been highs and lows, fast lane freeways and bumpy roads
    Cursed the devil and prayed to heaven, lost it all and we rolled some sevens
    There's been some smiles then there's been tears, been more good than bad years
    Ain't it crazy baby how we got here, oh, it all started with a beer (Yeah)
    Oh, it all started with an ice cold beer

    Here's to you baby (oh oh oh)

    So tonight lets raise 'em up to where we ended up

    'Cause there's been highs and lows, fast lane freeways and bumpy roads
    Cursed the devil and prayed to heaven, lost it all and we rolled some sevens
    There's been some smiles then there's been tears, been more good than bad years
    Ain't it crazy baby how we got here, oh, it all started with a beer (oh)
    Oh, it all started with an ice cold beer (oh) (yeah)

    Oh it all started with an ice cold beer (oh) Writer/s: JAREN JOHNSTON, JEREMY STOVER, NEIL MASON
