  • It was a home run when the game was tied
    A pick up truck when I could drive
    One pink line when Katie said I'm late
    It was a passing grade, a pretty girl
    All the money in the world
    What mattered then kept changing every day

    [Chorus]
    But when I bow my head tonight
    There'll be no me myself and I
    Just watch my wife and kids please lord
    That's all I ask for any more

    Now a days it's crazy how
    A passing storm, a siren sound
    Can make me drop it all and pick up the phone
    To hear her say that all's okay is all I need to know these days
    Can't wait to see their faces when I get home

    [Chorus]

    Let 'em outlive me by a hundred years
    Let their laughter dry up all their tears
    Let 'em love and be loved back like I have been

    [Chorus]

    That's all that matters anymore Writer/s: CASEY BEATHARD, TIM JAMES
