WOULD'A BEEN HERE MUCH SOONER
Morris P. Rainville & Rich Dodson
My mama always told me, the good Lord is the way
The devil is always lurkin', and watching where you play
He's always got time to tempt you, he loves when you go the wrong way
You would'a been here much sooner, if you listened to what I say.
I think about the time I wasted, working for the man
Just got caught in the nine to five, with a promising retirement plan
At times it seemed I lost my dream, just wasn't making any headway
I would'a been here much sooner, blame it on security.
Would'a been here much sooner, got lost along the way
Went down the wrong direction, not enough attention I pay
Sorry that I made you wait so long, sheer stupidity
Would'a been here much sooner, got lost along the way.
Whiskey got a hold of me one time, and I almost lost my mind
Woman and the kids walked out one night, I had a little too much wine
The beer brings on the ladies, you see it every night on the TV
I would'a been here much sooner, but drinkin' got a hold of me.
Now mama if you're listening, I'm headin' down a brand new road
The devil ain't gonna stop me, I've got a song deep in my soul
I think I've learned my lesson, things are really gonna be all right
Would'a been here much sooner, but it took time to see the light.
