Ain't Back Yet

Album: Greatest Hits II (2010)
Charted: 50
  • I heard a song 'bout a ramblin' man
    Bought a guitar and I started a band
    I got a gig at the local Am Vet
    And I was gone and I ain't back yet, yeah

    '69 bored out and jacked up
    A quarter mile that was all it was
    I burned the cool off of that Corvette
    And I was gone and I ain't back yet

    Lookin' back at the moments, black and white
    I wouldn't change a thing that changed my life
    For the worse, for the better
    Man, I was gone, gone forever

    She was a cut offs pepper sauce queen
    Man, we were matches and gasoline
    First taste of love never will forget
    I was gone and I ain't back yet
    I was gone, gone and I ain't back yet

    Lookin' back at the moments, black white
    I wouldn't change a thing that changed my life
    For the worse, for the better
    Man, I was gone, gone forever
    The laughs, the smiles, the trials, the tears
    It's hard to hate what got me here
    What got me here

    She was a straight out of Hollywood smile
    We missed it all by a country mile
    Went out one night for some cigarettes
    And I was gone and I ain't back yet

    I was gone, gone and I ain't back yet
    I was gone and I ain't back, ain't back, ain't back
    And I was gone, and I ain't back yet
    I was gone, and I ain't back yet
    I was gone, and I ain't back yet

    (Gone and I ain't back yet)
    (Gone and I ain't back yet)
    (Gone and I ain't back yet)
    (Gone and I ain't back yet)
    (Gone and I ain't back yet) Writer/s: Christopher Tompkins, Craig Wiseman
