Closest I've Ever Been
- 102 Views
Closest I've ever been to meeting Jesus was when Me and Bobby Penson put up our pink slips on Blue Hole road Me needle's showing ninety, I flew right by him Lightning fast until I had a bad Goodyear blow That old Chevy rolled and rolled and I know Heaven must have 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 seeing 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 furtherest I've ever fell Not too far to find out how life ends That's the closest I ever been Closest I've ever been To being the devil's friend was when Shelly gave into me and him Down by the river I gave her my heart and my jacket I still ain't got 'em back yet She left me hurt, searching for love, liquor, whatever Quicker than I could say sin I slipped further in than I was planning 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 telling God "to hell with him" Go down in flames and laying 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 Not too far for God to forgive I thank God That's the closest I've ever been Got it all behind me And every day I'm finding Another way to be the best man I can And I'm the closest I ever been Closest I've ever been Closest I've ever been
