Todd Snider – That Was Me lyrics
Remember back about five years ago
Drivin' down the highway
Saw a kid there by the road
Long blond dirty hair
His thumb out in the air
That was me
That was me

Remember the kid that walked into your store
The one you told you were sorry,
You weren't hiring anymore
So he walked out your door
His head hung toward the floor
That was me
That was me

I'm a face you've seen a million times
The one who never seems
To fit in between those lines
I'm every broken dream
This world has left behind
I'm a face you've seen a million times

Remember the kid you saw that night downtown
Singin' on the sidewalk
Guitar case on the ground
He looked down on his luck
So you threw him a buck
That was me
That was me

Remember back about five years ago
Drivin' down the highway
Saw a kid there by the road
Long blond dirty hair
His thumb out in the air
That was me
That was me

That was me
