  • Seventeen, you don't think that much about life
    You just live it
    Like Kerosene dancin' 'round a fire
    But you're in it

    So you jump right in
    Ain't afraid to fall
    And you give it all

    She got the best of me
    She broke my heart
    Now all that's left of me
    Is beating in this guitar
    Every night, a different town
    She follows me around
    So you get what's left of me
    Yeah, you get what's left of me
    'Cause she got the best of me

    I picked myself up off the floor
    And found something new worth livin' for
    And a, old dusty hand-me-down six string
    And a couple chords

    I'm gettin' over her
    A little more with every song
    So y'all sing along

    She got the best of me
    She broke my heart
    Now all that's left of me
    Is beating in this guitar
    Every night, a different town
    She follows me around
    So you get what's left of me
    Yeah, you get what's left of me
    'Cause she got the best of me

    Whoa, whoa oh

    She got the best of me
    She broke my heart
    Now all that's left of me
    Is beating in this guitar
    Every night, a different town
    She follows me around
    So you get what's left of me
    Yeah, you get what's left of me
    'Cause she got the best of me
    She got the best of me
    She got the best of me Writer/s: Channing Wade Wilson, Luke Combs, Robert Francis Snyder
