Lessons Learned Lyrics

by Tracy Lawrence

I was ten years old the day I got caught
With some dime store candy that I never bought
I hung my head and I faced the wall
As daddy showed me wrong from right

He said, "This hurts me more than it does you,
"There's just some things, son, that you just don't do.
"Is anything I'm sayin' gettin' through?"
I said, "Daddy, I can see the light."

Oh lessons learned, man, they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh, there's no way around it
'Cause this world turns on lessons learned

Grand-daddy was a man I loved
He bought me my first ball and glove
He even taught me how to drive his truck
Circlin' that old town square

He spoke of life with a slow southern drawl
I never heard him 'cause I knew it all
But I sure listened when I got the call
That he was no longer there

Oh, lessons learned, man, they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh, there's no way around it
'Cause this world turns on lessons learned

Oh, lessons learned, man they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh, there's no way around it
'Cause this world turns on lessons learned
