Startin' With Me

Sung by: Jake Owen




I had a one night stand with my best friend's baby sister
To this day he still won't speak to me
I pawned my Grandpa's old guitar in college
For a case 'a beer and a tank 'a gasoline

I took a swing at my ol' man one Christmas
I never dreamed that it would be his last
I wish Mom had wrung my neck
When she caught me with those cigarettes
Which reminds me, I'm down to my last pack

If I had a dime for half the things I did
That didn't make no sense at all
I'd be livin' a little higher on the hog
If only I'd 'a known
That later on down the road
I'd look back and not like what I see
I'd 'a changed a lotta things
Startin' with me

I called my brother everything I could think of
The night he wouldn't bail me outta jail
I lost a job most folks 'round here would die for
By layin' out all night and raisin' hell

And I let a woman that I love slip through my fingers
Chalk another dumb move up to my foolish pride
I wasn't there standin' by the bed
When the preacher bowed his head
With the family, the day my Grandma died

If I had a dime for half the things I did
That didn't make no sense at all
I'd be livin' a little higher on the hog
If only I'd 'a known
That later on down the road
I'd look back and not like what I see
Oh I'd 'a changed a lotta things
Startin' with me

If only I'd 'a known
That later on down the road
I'd look back and not like what I see
Oh I'd 'a changed a lotta things
Startin' with me
Startin' with me
