Closest I've ever been
To meetin' Jesus was when
Me and Bobby Pinson put up our pink slips
On Blue Hole Road

My needle showin' ninety
I flew right by him
Lighting fast 'til I had a bad goodyear blow
That ol' Chevy rolled and rolled and I know

Heaven must've heard the words
Beneath my breath
And I thank God, I ain't there yet

That's the closest I've ever been
To never seein' my momma again
Found out quick how precious life is
Drive my new truck a little slower than I did

That's the smallest I've ever felt
That's the furthest I've ever fell
Not too far to find out how life ends
That's the closest I've ever been

Closest I've ever been
To bein' the devil's friend was when
Shelly gave in to me
And him down by the river

I gave her my heart and my jacket
Still ain't got 'em back yet
She left me hurtin' and searchin'
For love or liquor or whatever

Quicker than I could say sin
I slipped further in, than I was plannin'
I never shook the devil's hand
But I drank his whiskey and I loved his women

That's the closest I've ever been
To tellin' God to hell with Him
Goin' down in flames, and layin' the blame
Why would He ever let her walk away

That's the smallest I've ever felt
That's the furthest I've ever fell
But not too far for God to forgive
And I thank God, that's the closest I've ever been

Got it all behind me and every day I'm findin'
Another way to be the best man I can

And I'm the closest I've ever been
Closest I've ever been, closest I've ever been
