Best Years of My Life

Album: Interstate Gospel (2018)
  • I picked a good day for a recreational percocet
    I've got an itch to just get high
    I'm in the middle of the worst of it
    These are the best years of my life

    I've got the hankering for intellectual emptiness
    I've got the need to ease my mind
    I'll watch some re-runs on the TV set
    These are the best years of my life

    I was looking forward to
    Staying here forever
    'Cause you asked me to
    Didn't think that I could do better
    So I settled down
    In this ten-cent town
    It's about to break me

    I'm gonna mix a drink and try to drown this worthlessness
    Call mom and tell her I'm alright
    Well he don't love me but he ain't gone yet
    These are the best years of my life

    Uh uh uh
    Uh uh uh
    Uh uh uh

    Yeah I was looking forward to
    Staying here forever
    'Cause you asked me to
    Didn't think that I could do better
    So I settled down
    In this ten-cent town
    It's about to break me

    I picked a good day for a recreational percocet
    I've got an itch to just get high
    I'm in the middle of the worst of it
    These are the best years of my life
    These are the best years of my life
    These are the best years of my life Writer/s: Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, Angaleena Presley
