Back In The Day

Back In The Day

Brantley Gilbert

Mamma, she's still got that picture
Of me and Katie on homecomin' night
She looked pretty in that fancy dress
But that girl was a barefoot blue jean princess

A hand full of rocks and daddy's pine ladder
Sure did come in handy
For a teenage boy thinkin' all that mattered
Was a kiss that taste like candy

Back in the day we were wild and free
She was my dashboard drummer
Butterflies in the backseat
Little footprints on my window

Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
A little sun dress laying up there on the back
While the water washed our innocence away
Back in the day

Friday night's I would look up there in the bleachers
And I could see a letterman's jacket on
And I still got this scar here on my right hand
When Bobby told her she deserved a better man
Aw she hung right with me down in Panama City
Raisin' hell on our senior trip
And man ain't it funny it gets the best of me
And I just can't forget
I just can't forget

Back in the day we were wild and free
She was my dashboard drummer
Butterflies in the backseat
Little footprints on my window

Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
A little sun dress laying up there on the back
While the water washed our innocence away
Back in the day

Summer was over
College was callin', man I had to watch her leave
But I still wonder if she ever thinks of me

Cause back in the day we were wild and free
She was my dashboard drummer
Butterflies in the backseat
Little footprints on my window

Parkin' my Chevy by the riverside
And four letters in a heart carved in a pine
A little sun dress laying up there on the back
While the water washed our innocence away
Back in the day

Feels like yesterday
Back in the day
Back in the day
