Bucky Covington – Back When We Were Gods lyrics

Yeah me Jim and Dan, we were all best friends. Riding off like cowboys on a road that never ends. We knew it was our last time for the time of our lives....

See Dan was getting married, Jim was going to desert storm, I was heading off to college moving into a dorm. So we took off in that old hot rod, back when we were Gods.
You couldn't tell us nothing we didn't already know and if the sign said off limits, you could bet we would go a hundred miles an hour nonstop. Back when we were Gods.

There were Arizona troopers trailing close behind. We knew they couldn't touch us once we crossed the state line, so we pulled over and showed them a Tennessee moon from the California sign.

L. A. Was a nightmare, Vegas was a dream. Danny won more money than we had ever seen, didn't take us one day to blow the whole wad, yeah back when we were Gods.

We thought we were invinsable couldn't nothing bring us down, but it didn't take long for the real world to knock us flat on the ground and I hope we were forgiven for all the crazy things we did, after all we were just kids
