ONE MORE TIME AROUND

VERSE
Today they’re gonna lay me in the ground
With friends and family gathered all about
Mom I know I wasn’t perfect— I just hope I made you proud
But if I could do this one more time around

CHORUS
I would’ve cleaned my room—when you were too tired from your day
And taken Bobby’s keys that night—before he drove away
And stood beside my woman—instead of walkin’ out
If only I knew then what I know now
One more time around

VERSE
I always wondered what my stone would say
Now I’m nothing but a dash between two dates
The flowers are so beautiful—but soon they’ll fade away
Like the mem-or-ies that I will never make

CHORUS 2
I’d be there on his birthday—every single year
Never miss a ball game and buy him his first beer
And walk her down the aisle and hear my baby take her vows
If only I knew then what I know now
One more time around

BRIDGE
Oh, if only I’d been smart enough to slow that Chevy down
None of us would have to be here now

CHORUS 3
I swear I would’ve cleaned my room—when you were too tired from your day
And taken Bobby’s keys that night—and never let him drive away
And stood beside my woman—like she’s standing by me now
Wish I could turn the hourglass—upside down
One more time around

TAG
If only I knew then what I know now
One more time around
