Kenny Chesney
Live Those Songs

Saw him sitting on a sidewalk in Fresno
Braided hair and a tye-dyed t-shirt on
Talking to himself about Vietnam
About the tour he did and the deal he got

He said, "This world ain't the same if you ask me
If I could be somewhere else, I'd tell you where I'd be

I'd be rolling on a river with Credence
Stealing kisses from Peggy Sue
I'd be knee-deep in sand on a Panama beach
In the spring of '72
And I'd be wasting away on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll in"
He said, "What I wouldn't give just to live those songs again"

Saw him working the counter at Walgreens
With a new haircut and a Bachelor's Degree
Talking to himself about his raw deal
Cussing Uncle Sam and the GI bill

He said, "This world ain't the same if you ask me
If I could be somewhere else, I'd tell you where I'd be

I'd be rolling on a river with Credence
Stealing kisses from Peggy Sue
I'd be knee-deep in sand on a Panama beach
In the spring of '72
And I'd be wasting away on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll in"
He said, "What I wouldn't give just to live those songs again"

He said, "This world ain't the same if you ask me
If I could be somewhere else, I'd tell you where I'd be

I'd be rolling on a river with Credence
Stealing kisses from Peggy Sue
I'd be knee-deep in sand on a Panama beach
In the spring of '72
And I'd be wasting away on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll in"
He said, "What I wouldn't give just to live those songs again"
