Was It 26 Lyrics

Livin' hard was easy when I was young and bullet-proof
I had no chains to bind me, just a guitar and a roof
Emptied every bottle, when I poured I never missed
I had blood shot eyes at twenty five or was it twenty six
Didn't seem to matter what price I had to pay
'Cause anything worth havin', I'd just lose anyway
Friends worried about me they'd asked if I was sick
Thought I wouldn't die at twenty five or was it twenty sixThose two years run together like whiskey over ice
Melted into memories like somebody else's life
I'm glad to say, I've come around
But if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at twenty five
Or was it twenty sixMet a girl from Georgia, smart and pretty, college grad
I thought my luck was changin' but then it all went bad
I guess I fell in love with her all it took was just one kiss
But then she said goodbye at twenty-five or was it twenty sixThose two years run together like whiskey over ice
Melted into memories like somebody else's life
I'm glad to say, I've come around
But if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at twenty five
Or was it twenty sixI've been down that road before almost as far as hell
Deception or redemption, I guess only time will tell
I have faith and the knowledge that God gave us a gift
I couldn't hide at twenty-five or was it twenty-sixThose two years run together like whiskey over ice
Melted into memories like somebody else's life
I'm glad to say, I've come around
But if I could have one wish
I'd like another try at twenty five
Or was it twenty six
