Back When I Knew It All Lyrics

by Montgomery Gentry

At the ripe old age of nineteen
I bought a short-bed pick-up-chicks machine
Life ran on beer and gasoline
A half a lap ahead of the law

I had a fake ID that got me into Tuffies
Love was a word I used to get lucky
Was a big time spender with that plastic money
Back when I knew it all

Back when the world was flat
And mama and daddy didn't have a clue, that was back
Back when a pitcher of beer and a couple shots
Made me bulletproof

Back when God was a name I used in vain
To get a point across when I got ticked off
Lord I'm learning so much more
Than back when I knew it all

I found out credit cards don't mean you're rich
And beer and gasoline don't mix
Yeah, step side trucks can't jump a ditch
And those big house rooms sure are small

I've learned that love is a woman that will settle you down
A Sunday sermon can turn life around
Man I can't believe all the actors I've found
Since back when I knew it all

Back when the world was flat
And mama and daddy didn't have a clue, that was back
Back when a pitcher of beer and a couple shots
Made me bulletproof

Back when God was a name I used in vain
To get a point across when I got ticked off
Lord I'm learning so much more
Than back when I knew it all

I've done some growing up
And I'm still growing up
So I know I'll never be as smart as I once was
That was back

When the world was flat
And mama and daddy didn't have a clue, way back
Back when a pitcher of beer and a couple shots
Made me bulletproof

Back when God was a name I used in vain
To get a point across when I got ticked off
Lord I'm learning so much more
Than back when I knew it all
Back when I knew it all
