  • Today is my Birthday
    And all that I want
    Is to dig through this big box of pictures in my Kitchen
    Till the daylights gone

    This one here is my momma
    With the long brown hair
    I'm 40 yrs older today than she was in that picture there

    But if life stayed it was
    And lovers never fell out of love
    If memories didn't last so long
    If nobody did nobody wrong
    If we knew what we had before it was gone
    If every road led back home
    This would be
    The very last country song

    These are all my babies
    Lord knows how we survived
    The first one was hard and last was unplanned
    What a big surprise
    That him with his daddy's eyes

    I loved the man in this one
    It's faded but I don't care
    There are nights when I wake up and know that he's beside me I swear

    But if life stayed it was
    And lovers never fell out of love
    If memories didn't last so long
    If nobody did nobody wrong
    If we knew what we had before it was gone
    If every road led back home
    This would be
    The very last country song

    If we knew what he had before it was gone
    If every road led back home
    This would the very last country song Writer/s: JENNIFER NETTLES, KRISTIAN BUSH, TIM OWENS
