I was 10 years old the day I got caught
With some dime-store candy that I never bought
I moved my head and I faced the wall
'Cause daddy showed wrong from right

He said, “This hurts me more than it does you
There's just some things son that you just don't do"
If anything saying, getting through
Daddy I can see the light

Oh oh lessons learned and they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh there is no way around it
This world turns, on lessons learned

Granddaddy was the man I loved
He bought me my first ball and glove
He even taught we had to drive his truck
Circling in that old town square

Spoke of life with a slow Southern brawl
But I never heard it 'cause I knew it all
But I sure listened when I got the call
That he was no longer there

Oh oh lessons learned and they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh there is no way around it
This world turns, on lessons learned

Oh oh lessons learned and they sure run deep
They don't go away and they don't come cheap
Oh there is no way around it
This world turns, on lessons learned
