Verse 1
I rolled my daddy's truck off the Dixonville curve after drinkin' my fifth beer.
And I fed hogs trying to pay him off for most of my senior year.
I got my jaw jacked by a big ole boy for messing 'round with his girlfriend.
But she was tall and tiny and she kissed just right but I'll never do that again.

Chorus
Yeah I've done some pretty stupid things but heyyy
I'm a little bit harder and whole lot smarter
That's how I got to be this way.

Verse 2
I've been kicked in the face by horse cause I ran up to fast behind him
And I shook hands on a deal with a man just to find out that he was lying.
I've broken a couple good girls hearts cause I said I loved em knowin' I couldn't
An I've given my heart to a woman who said she would stay when I knew she wouldn't

Chorus
Yeah l've done some pretty stupid things but heyyy
I'm a little bit harder and whole lot smarter
That's how I got to be this way.

Refrain
I'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 kid

Chorus
Yeah I've done some pretty stupid things but heyyy
I'm a little bit harder and whole lot smarter
That's how I got to be this way.
Yeah I've done some pretty stupid things but heyyy
I'm a little bit harder and whole lot smarter
That's how I got to be this way.
