  • I wish girls you loved never gave back diamond rings
    I wish every porch had a swing
    Wish kids still learned to say "sir" and "ma'am"
    How to shake a hand
    I wish every state had a Birmingham

    I wish everybody knew all the words to Mama Tried
    I wish Monday mornings felt just like Friday nights

    And I wish even cars had truck beds
    And every road was named Copperhead
    And coolers never run out of cold Bud Light
    And I wish high school home teams never lost
    And back road drinkin' kids never got caught
    And I wish the price of gas was low and cotton was high
    I wish honky tonks didn't have no closing time
    And I wish grandpas never died

    I wish Sunday's on a creek bank would never end
    Wish I could learn to drive again
    Wish the first time, seventeen
    She was my everything
    Kiss in a Chevrolet could happen every day

    I wish everybody overseas was gonna make it home
    I wish Country music still got played on Country radio

    And I wish even cars had truck beds
    And every road was named Copperhead
    And coolers never run out of cold Bud Light
    And I wish high school home teams never lost
    And back road drinkin' kids never got caught
    And I wish the price of gas was low and cotton was high
    I wish honky tonks didn't have no closing time
    And I wish grandpas never died
    Never died

    And I wish good dogs never got grey and old
    I wish farms never got sold

    And I wish even cars had truck beds
    And every road was named Copperhead
    And coolers never run out of cold Bud Light
    I wish high school home teams never lost
    And back road drinkin' kids never got caught
    And I wish the price of gas was low and cotton was high
    I wish honky tonks didn't have no closing time
    And I wish grandpas never died
