Comin' Back Home

Lyrics

Comin' Back Home 

I'm runnin' tired, wearin' thin 
I'm wearin' clothes that don't fit in 
It's a never endin' week long laundry list 
Stop and go, goin' crazy 
Overtime, underpaid 
And maybe I ain't made for this 
Traffic, sirens, city lights 
Pay to park every night 
It's hard to find the stars around here 
This world I'm in is spinnin' so fast 
Makes me wish that I was back 

On a front porch sittin' 
Guitar pickin' 
Shootin' shit 
Killin' time 
Bonfire burnin' 
Pappy's slurrin' 
Take your turn and pass the shine 
Bout to spend a long weekend 
Where I belong 'cause damn I've been 
Gone just a little to long 
But I'm comin' back home 

Well I'm payin' bills, payin' dues 
I feel like I could play the blues 
Well maybe not, but you know what I mean 
It ain't nice, sure ain't clean 
This one bedroom on Easy Street 
The rent's cheap, but the grass ain't so green 
Act the part when in Rome 
All these folks stay on the phone 
But somehow, they're still hard to reach 
Of all the places on the map 
Only one takes me back 

On a front porch sittin' 
Guitar pickin' 
Shootin' shit 
Killin' time 
Bonfire burnin' 
Pappy's slurrin' 
Take your turn and pass the shine 
Bout to spend a long weekend 
Where I belong 'cause damn I've been 
Gone just a little to long 
But I'm comin' back home 

Mama's in the kitchen dancin' and cookin' 
Daddy's on the Gibson singin' "Hey Good Lookin'" 

We're all front porch sittin' 
Guitar pickin' 
Shootin' shit 
Killin' time 
Bonfire burnin' 
Pappy's slurrin' 
Take your turn and pass the shine 
Bout to spend a long weekend 
Where I belong 'cause damn I've been 
Gone just a little to long (I've been gone) 

Well I've been gone just a little too long 
But I'm comin' back home 

I'm comin' back home 

Yeah, I'm comin back home

Nothin' but a Memory 

Steam on the window  
Where you draw those little hearts 
On those nights we'd take  
the long way home 
and find a place to park 
Remember makin' love  
On a spring break beach 
In Panama City  
Had a hell of a week 
Young and wild 
and nothin' could tear us apart 
Yeah I'll never forget  
the way I felt 
The first time you said  
those three words to me 
It's kind of hard to believe 

That you ain't nothin' but a memory 
A used to be 
My best friend that I loved like crazy 
The only one 
I thought I'd ever need 
You're just a one time way back when 
Back when it was you and me 
But now 
You ain't nothin' but a memory 

Well theres a handful of pictures  
in a dusty shoebox 
Sittin' in your closet  
Right behind that dress 
You wore to senior prom 
So if you're lonley tonight 
and missin' those times 
Take a look inside  
if you're lookin for me 
'Cause that's where I'll be 

'Cause you ain't nothin' but a memory 
A used to be 
My best friend that I loved like crazy 
The only one 
I thought I'd ever need 
You're just a one time way back when 
Back when it was you and me 
But now 
You ain't nothin' but a memory 

It's another missed call 
a midnight text 
Another temptation 
makeup sex 
No 
It's time to let it all go 

'Cause you ain't nothin' but a memory 
A used to be 
My best friend that I loved like crazy 
The only one 
I thought I'd ever need 

You ain't nothin' but a memory 
A used to be 
My best friend that I loved like crazy 
The only one 
I thought I'd ever need 
You're just a one time way back when 

You're just a one time way back when 
Back when it was you and me 
But now 
You ain't nothin' but a memory 

Now you ain't nothin' but a memory

Remember Where You Came From 

I've learned a thing or two 
When it comes to livin' life 
Everybody's got their own two cents 
When it comes to givin' advice 
But I remember what my old man told me 
right before I left 
Havin' a beer sittin' in the back 
of a packed up truck bed 
When he said 

Look a man in the eye when you shake his hand 
Don't ever give up and tell yourself you can't 
If someone doubts you boy prove 'em wrong 
'Cause good things come with hard work and time 
And always keep the good Lord by your side 
But most important son 
Remember where you came from 

Out here in the real world 
Just kind of like his twelve gauge 
I can feel the kick 
Some day's I'm the captain 
Others I'm the last one picked 
Sometimes I'm a losin' hand 
but I'll deal with what I'm dealt 
You can bet I won't give up 
'Cause I can still hear daddy yell 
Son give 'em hell 

And look a man in the eye when you shake his hand 
Don't ever give up and tell yourself you can't 
If someone doubts you boy prove 'em wrong 
'Cause good things come with hard work and time 
And always keep the good Lord by your side 
But most important son 
Remember where you came from 

Well even though years have passed 
and now he's gone 
I still carry those words around 
and some day I'll get to pass 'em on 

Look a man in the eye when you shake his hand 
Don't ever give up and tell yourself you can't 
If someone doubts you boy you prove 'em wrong 
'Cause good things come with hard work and time 
And always keep the good Lord by your side 
But most important son 

But most important son 
Remember where you came from 

Remember where you came from
