A Lot of Things Different

Charted: 55
  • I'd spent a lot more time in the pouring rain covering my head
    And I'd stood up to that bully when he pushed and called me names
    I was to afraid
    And I'd gone on and saw Elvis that night he came to town
    Mama said I couldn't
    I'd went skinny dippin' with Jenny Carson that time she dared me to
    I didn't
    Oooh I, I'd done a lot of things different

    I wish I woulda spent more time with my dad when he was alive
    Now I don't have the chance
    I wish I would've told my brother how much I loved him before he went off to war
    But I just shook his hand
    I wish I'd gone to church on Sunday morning when my grandma begged me to
    But I was afraid to go
    I wish I'd woulda listened when they said "boy your gunna wish you hadn't"
    But I wouldn't
    Oooh I, I'd don't a lot of things different

    People say they wouldn't change a thing
    Even if they could
    Oooh but I would

    There was this red dress she wanted one time so bad she could taste it
    I should've bought it
    But I didn't
    She wanted to paint our bedroom yellow trimed in blue's and green's
    But I wouldn't let her
    It wouldn't have hurt nothin'
    She loved to be held and kisses and touched
    But I didn't do it
    Not nearly enough
    And if I'd known that dance was gunna be our last dance
    I'd asked that band to play
    On and on
    Ooon and ooon
    Oooh I, I'd done a lot of things different

    People say they wouldn't change a thing
    Even if they could
    Oooh but I would
    Ooooh oooh
    Oooh I, I'd done a lot of things different
    Oooh I, I'd done a lot of things
    I think we'd all do a lot of things different Writer/s: BILL ANDERSON, DEAN DILLON
