Dylan Scott – Boy I Was Back Then Lyrics

Dylan Scott – Boy I Was Back Then Lyrics

I used to tear that town up
Used to burn them bars down
Used to act all real tough
Used to try to show out
I hate to say it but the cops used to know my name
A lot of them daddies sure hated me too
That’s the reason my momma prayed
Prayed I’d meet a girl like you

I could talk the talk in the back of a bar
Walk the walk any girl to her car
I could drink the drink to just get drunk
Kiss the kiss without falling in love
I did what I did and didn’t give a damn
I was who I was, now I am who I am
But you wouldn’t love the man
If you’d’ve known the boy I was back then

I wasn’t a good guy
I wasn’t a bad guy
But I sure wasn’t the guy that you’d wanna spend your life with
Yeah, when I think about those days
All the nights stayed out past two
I ain’t sorry for the hell I raised
‘Cause hell it led me straight to you

I could talk the talk in the back of a bar
Walk the walk any girl to her car
I could drink the drink to just get drunk
Kiss the kiss without falling in love
I did what I did and didn’t give a damn
I was who I was, now I am who I am
But you wouldn’t love the man
If you’d’ve known the boy I was back then

Back when
I was a wrecking ball, I’d wreck it all
Then I grew up when you made me fall
In love with you

I could talk the talk in the back of a bar
Walk the walk any girl to her car
I could drink the drink to just get drunk
Kiss the kiss without falling in love
I did what I did and didn’t give a damn
I was who I was, now I am who I am
But you wouldn’t love the man
If you’d’ve known the boy I was back then
