How I Got to Be This Way

Justin Moore


I rolled my daddy's truck off the Dickson Ville curve
After drinkin' my fifth beer
And I fed hogs tryin' to pay him off
For most of my senior yearI got my jaw jacked by a big ol' boy
For messin' 'round with his girlfriend
She was tall and tight and she kissed just right
But I'll never do that againYeah
I've done some pretty stupid things but, hey
I'm a little bit harder and a whole lot smarter
That's how I got to be this wayI've been kicked in the face by a horse
'Cause I ran up too fast behind him
And I shook hands on a deal with a man
And found out he was lyin'
I've broken a couple of good girl's hearts
'Cause I've said I loved them, knowin' I couldn't
And I've given my heart to a woman
Who said she'd stay when I knew she wouldn'tYeah
I've done some pretty stupid things but, hey
I'm a little bit harder and a whole lot smarter
That's how I got to be this wayI've been bit, I've been burned
But I've lived and I've learned from it
I've made some mistakes but that's what it takes
To make a man out of a kidYeah
I've done some pretty stupid things but, hey
I'm a little bit harder and a whole lot smarter
That's how I got to be this way
Yeah
I've done some pretty stupid things but
Hey, hey, hey, I'm a little bit harder and a whole lot smarter
That's how I got to be this wayThat's how I got to be this, how I got to be this
How I got to be this way, hey
