He said he had to stop
Hadn't had a drop
Of anything
Stonger than coffee
In 10 months 3 weeks and 1 long day
He pushed away his plate
Said it's better late
Then never done
When it comes
To gettin right
It took a while but I saw the light

Bridge
He said somethings they cast long shadows
That I never will out run
And everyday I spend a-livin'
The ghost of all the things that I've done...

Chorus
Wrong
Grab a chair cause the list is long
I can write you a country song
About the reasons I'll be going home
To a house full of memories
Things I wish I done differently
When I'm feeling weak the keep me strong
The ghost of all the things that I've done wrong

He said there's a spot of paint
And it just ain't
The right shade
But it covers up the hole I made
Where I broke my wrist the night she left
And there's a lot of friends
That I ain't never seen in a lot of years
Some are still hangin' around
In old pictures I just can't take down

Bridge
He said some things they cast long shaddows
That I never will out run
And everyday I do battle
With the ghost of all the things I've done...

Chorus
Wrong
Grab a chair cause the list is long
I can write you a country song
About the reasons I'll be going home
To a house full of memories
Things I wish I done differently
And when I'm feeling weak the keep me strong
The ghost of all the things that I've done wrong

I got a heart full of memories
Things I wish I done differently
And when I'm feeling weak they keep me strong
The ghost of all the things...
I've done wrong

He said he had to stop
Hadn't had a drop
Of anything
Stonger than coffee
In 10 months 3 weeks and 1 long day
