Toby Keith "Good As I Once Was"

She said "I've seen you in here before"
I said "I've been here at time or two"
She said "Hello my name is Bobby Jo
meet my twin sister Better Lou
and we're both feeling kinda wild tonight
and you're the only cowboy in this place
and if you're up for a rodeo
we'll put a big Texas smile on your face"

I said "Girls
I ain't as good as I once was
I got a few years on me now
but there was a time
back in my prime
when I could really lay it down
so if you need some love tonight
then I might have just enough
I ain't as good as I once was
but I'm as good once as I ever was"

I still hang out with my best friend Dave
I've known him since we were kids at school
last night he had a shot
got in a tight spot
hustlin' a game of pool
with a couple of readneck boys
one great big bad biker man
I heard David yell across the room
"hey buddy how 'bout a helping hand"

I said"Dave
I ain't as good as I once was
my how the years have flown
but there was a time back in my prime
when I could really hold my own
but if you wanna fight tonight
guess thouse boys dont look all that tough
I ain't as good as I once was
but I'm as good once
as I ever was"

I used to be hell on wheels
back when I was younger man
now my body says "you cant do this boy"
but my pride says "oh yes you can"

I aint as good as I once was
that's just the cold hard truth
I still throw a few back
talk a little smack
when I'm feelin bullet proof
so don't double dog dare me now
'cause I'd have to call your bluff
I ain't as good as I once was
but I'm as good once as I ever was

may not be good as I once was
but I'm as good once
as I ever was

I like that song too, Aza, and I'm a reformed metalhead. :)

Something about country starts making sense once you hit 30.

This is a really interesting song, Aza. I don't think I've heard it, but now I'll have to look for it :)
