  • The body's a temple; that's what we're told
    I've treated this one like an old honky-tonk
    Greasy cheeseburgers and cheap cigarettes
    One day, they'll get me if they ain't got me yet

    'Cause I'm living in fast forward
    A hillbilly rock star out of control
    I'm living in fast forward
    Now I need to rewind real slow

    My friends all grew up; they settled down
    Built nice little houses on the outskirts of town
    They work in their office, drive SUVs
    They pray for their babies, and they worry 'bout me

    'Cause I'm living in fast forward
    A hillbilly rock star out of control
    I'm living in fast forward
    Now I need to rewind real slow

    I'm always runnin'
    Son-of-a-gunnin'
    I've had a good time, it's true
    But the way I've been goin'
    It's time that I toned it
    Down just a notch or two

    Oh yeah

    Well, I'm living in fast forward
    A hillbilly rock star out of control
    I'm living in fast forward
    Now I need to rewind real slow

    Yeah, I'm living in fast forward
    A hillbilly rock star out of control
    I'm living in fast forward
    Now I need to rewind real slow

    Yeah, I need to rewind real slow
    Yeah, I still got some miles to go Writer/s: DAVID LEE MURPHY, MELVERN RIVERS II RUTHERFORD
