Old One Better

Old One Better

Tracy Byrd

(Mark Nesler/Tony Martin)

Well, she said when she left that a change might do me good
So I took her advice and I did the best I could
I¡¯ve gone from this to that ¡®til I¡¯m nothing like I used to be
In fact, everyone says I¡¯m a totally different me

Got a new life but I still like the old one better
It¡¯s nice but it just won¡¯t ever quite be the same
I have everything a man would want but I can¡¯t forget her
Oh, I got a new life but I still like the old one better

I pulled up my roots in the country and I moved uptown
Went from a slower pace to running with a faster crowd
I found a sweet young girl to replace all the love we knew
But I guess there¡¯s just some things you can¡¯t improve

Got a new life but I still like the old one better
It¡¯s nice but it just won¡¯t ever quite be the same
I have everything a man could want but I can¡¯t forget her
Oh, I got a new life but I still like the old one better

I have everything a man would want but I can¡¯t forget her
Oh, I got a new life but I still like the old one better

Oh, I got a new life but I still like the old one better
Yeah, I got a new life but I still like the old one better
