"That Was Us" lyrics - BRANTLEY GILBERT

"That Was Us"

I got my mail today, this economy sucks
A bunch of bills I can't pay, I guess they're shit out of luck
But there was one from an old friend, brought back memories
A black and white from way back when
Was hard to believe that was us
That was us riding dirt roads
Shooting buckshot at signs
Drinking beer we just stole
Passing jugs full of shine
Even them girls were one of them boys
Singing old country gold
Until we all lost our voice

That was us
That was us

Every once in a while we'll catch a game or a race
But catching up on old times turns into hell that we raised
We'll start re-telling stories and lies we've rehearsed
About the girls we made out with and how badass we were
That was us
That was us
That was us down in Panama cruising the strip
In the bed of my truck tossing beads and talking shit
Shotgunning beer, playing pong and flip cup
We never lost senior year, we tore them son bitches up

That was us
That was us

And we'll always remember those of us that we miss
We'll always be brothers and we'll never forget
But that was us that we carried, with tears in our eyes
When the rest of us are buried, we're throwing down in the sky
So raise a glass to the memories that won't ever die
Here's to friends, here's to family and one hell of a time
Yeah, here's to us
Here's to us
Yeah here's to us
Yeah here's to us
