Oh, if I had a big ol' eraser
I'd start from today
And go back through life's pages
And correct a lot of things
Yeah, steppin' on toes with my foot in my mouth
Yeah, thought I was the king
But that was back
Back when I knew everything

Yeah, a good hard head and no regrets
Is what I thought made the man
But now life's hard knocks is about all
I've got
And sorry's what I am
Yeah, I had my old worn-out opinion
Oh, and I sure made it plain
But that was back
Back when I knew everything

So whaddya say forgive and foget
One more chance is all I need
Yeah, this ol' loose cannon is a mighty
Long shot
This time I'm askin' please
Yeah that's right, I was wrong
Now all that I can say
Is that was back
Back when I knew everything

A little too big for my britcher
But life's a whittled me down to size
I just hope there's enough of me left
To apologize
(Repeat chorus)

Oh, that was back
Back when I knew everything
