Backwards Lyrics

Backwards

 
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Backwards I was sitting on a wooden stool
In a barbecue joint in Tennessee
When this ole boy walked in
And he sat right down next to me
I could tell he'd been through some hard times
There were tear stains on his old shirt
And he said you wanna know what you get
When you play a country song backwards

You get your house back
You get your dog back
You get your best friend Jackson back
You get your truck back
You get your hair back
Ya get your first and second jobs back
Your front porch swing
Going ding-a-ling-a-ling
Your bling bling bling and a diamond ring
Your get your farm and the barn and the boat and the Harley
That old black cat named Charlie
Sounds a little crazy, a little scattered and absurd
But that's what you get when you play a country song backwards

Well I never heard it said quite like that
It hit me in the face cause that's where I'm at
I almost fell flat out on the floor
He said wait a minute that's not all theres even more

You get your mind back
Your nerves back
Your achy breaky heart back
You get your pride back
You get your life back
You get your first real love back
You get your big screen TV, a DVD and a washing machine
You get the pond and the lawn
The rake and the mower
You go back where life is slower
It sounds a little crazy a little scattered and absurd
But that's what you get
When you play a country song backwards
Oh play that song
Woo!!!

We sat there and talked about how it would be
If we could just rewind it all and go back in T-I-M-E

You get your house back
You get your dog back
You get your best friend Jackson back
You get your truck back
You get your hair back
Ya get your first and second jobs back
Your front porch swing
going ding-a-ling-a-ling
Your bling bling bling and a diamond ring
Your get your farm and the barn and the boat and the Harley
That old black cat named Charlie
You get your mind back
Your nerves back
Your achy break heart back
You get your pride back
You get your life back
You get your first real love back
You get your big screen TV, a DVD and a washing machine
You get the pond and the lawn
The rake and the mower
You go back where life is slower
It sounds a little crazy a little scattered and absurd
But that's what you get
When you play a country song backwards
