  • I'm a new used car with a couple dents
    And I'll get where I'm going
    'Cause I know where I've been
    When it all goes south, I'm gonna rise again
    Just call me the comeback kid

    I'm a hail Mary pass on homecoming night
    Six points down with the clock ticking by
    Come hell or high water I still believe I can win
    Just call me the comeback kid

    (Oh, oh, oh) girl, I'm glad that you never did
    (Oh, oh, oh) lose faith in this comeback kid

    Baby, all life's bullets I've took to the chest
    Should've buried me alive, should've left me dead
    But when I reach for that white flag
    You won't let me quit
    And you call me the comeback kid

    (Oh, oh, oh) girl, I'm glad that you never did
    (Oh, oh, oh) lose faith in this comeback kid

    Someday I'm gonna get you that white picket fence
    And that little pink house just like Mellencamp said
    'Cause I want to taste the good life
    Before the Lord puts us to bed

    Girl, keep holding on, keep hangin' in
    (Oh, oh, oh) don't ever do what you never did
    (Oh, oh, oh) don't give up on this comeback kid
    (Oh, oh, oh) girl, I'm glad that you never did
    (Oh, oh, oh) lose faith in this comeback kid

    Just keep holding on
    Just keep holding on
    Just keep holding on Writer/s: ERIK DYLAN, JEFF HYDE, KIP MOORE, ROSS COPPERMAN
