RUSTY SIDE OF ME

THE TIN ON THAT ROOF
HAS SURE SEEN BETTER DAYS
THAT PLOW BEHIND THE BARN, IS RUSTING AWAY
LIKE THE FENDERS ON THAT BEAT UP TRUCK
OUT THERE IN THE YARD

UNDERNEATH THAT OLD TRAIN TRESSEL
WITH THOSE WORN OUT TRACKS
WE 'D SNEAK A FEW BEERS
HAVE A LOT OF LAUGHS
LIKE STEEL IN THEM RAILS
THOSE MEMORIES WILL NEVER DISAPPEAR

CHORUS
THERE'S BARB WIRE, WRAPPED AROUND MY HEART
AND THERE AIN'T NO WAY TO TEAR US APART
WHEN I LOOK IN THE MIRROR, I SEE
THE RUSTY SIDE OF ME

WHEN I LOOK BACK NOW
YESTERDAY SEEMS,
LIKE THAT OLD TRAIN
JUST RAN AWAY FROM ME
I CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL
I NEED TO SLOW IT ALL DOWN

'CAUSE I AIN'T EVEN CLOSE TO READY
TO TAKE THAT OLD DIRT NAP
I JUST THANK GOD I'M STILL ON
THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE GRASS
LIKE THAT RUSTY OLD PLOW
I CAN STILL TEAR UP SOME GROUND
