I was sittin on a bar stool
In a barbecue joint in Tennessee
When this ole boy walked in
And he sat right down next to me

I could tell hed been through some hard times
There were tear stains on his old shirt
And he said, Ya wanna know what ya get
When you play a country song backwards?

Ya get your house back, ya get your dog back
Ya get your best friend Jack back
Ya get your truck back, ya get your hair back
Ya get your first and second wives back

Your front porch swing, your pretty little thing
Your bling, bling, bling and a diamond ring
You get your farm and the barn and the boat and the Harley
First night in jail with Charlie

It sounds a little crazy
A little scattered and absurd
But thats what you get
When you play a country song backwards

Well, I never heard it said quite like that
It hit me in the face 'cause thats where Im at
I almost fell flat out on the floor, he said
Wait a minute, thats not all theres even more

Ya get your mind back, your nerves back
Your first heart attack back
You get your pride back, get your life back
And you get your first real love back

You get your big screen TV
A DVD and a washing machine
You get the pond and the lawn, and the bail, and the mower
You get to go back where you dont know her

It sounds a little crazy
A little scattered and absurd
But thats what you get
When you play a country song backwards, oh, that's all

We sat there and shot the bull
About how it would be
But if we could turn it all around
And change this C R A P

Ya get your house back, ya get your dog back
Ya get your best friend Jack back
Ya get your truck back, ya get your hair back
Ya get your first and second wives back

Your front porch swing, your pretty little thing
Your bling, bling, bling and a diamond ring
You get your farm and the barn and the boat and the Harley
First night in jail with Charlie

Ya get your mind back, your nerves back
Your first heart attack back
You get your pride back, get your life back
And you get your first real love back

You get your big screen TV
A DVD and a washing machine
You get the pond and the lawn, and the bail, and the mower
You get to go back where you dont know her

It sounds a little crazy
A little scattered and absurd
But thats what you get
When you play a country song backwards
