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
