I Thought That's Who I Was
Bobby Pinson

Verse One:
E                                   A
Me and Billy Joe Taylor joined each other at the hip
E                                    A
I loved him like the brother I never had
E                      A
He was my go to guy on third and ten
E                                  A     E        A
He made me look good at the quarterback, mmmmm
E                                 A
Texas had a man in the stands the night we beat the Panthers
          E                                   A
Said they had a spot for both of us that next fall
E                                A
We were riding high on pride and big time futures
E                               B
Small town paper said we had it all

Chorus One:
E                                   B                                E
Up until the night me and Billy Joe drank way too much for Blue Buck Road
Born to Be Wild on the radio, God I still hate that song
E                          B                                           E
Both of died there in that crash, but I lived to wish I had that night back
After that football didn't mean that much
    E          B                       E          A 
But until then, I thought that's who I was

Verse Two:
E                                A
Daddy had a hardware store where hard work was his living
E                                    A
Peddling the hammers that built this town
E                                    A    
I broke his heart that summer when I told he what I wasn't getting
E                            A        E           A
How to sell the nails by the pound
E                            A
Spent my last paycheck on an RC and a Greyhound
E                                   A
A front seat to the world I'd never seen
E                                        A
Got a job, got a girl, had some cash and the world in my pocket
E                                       B
Thought I'd found my place in the great machine

Chorus Two:
E                            B                                            E
Up until the night I got the call, Mama said Daddy didn't feel nothin' at all
She broke down at the fellowship hall said baby we need you here with us
E                                     B                                    E
I told my boss he wished me the best, I told my girl she wished we'd never met
But I don't regret what I gave up
       E          B                       E
'Cause until then, I thought that's who I was

E        B         E       A   B

I drove straight through some twist and turns
Lived through some crash and burns
A                                              B
Stumbled through some lessons learned with the weight on my shoulders
A                             E
Went around the world to find the girl God had in mind
A                                 B
He gave me a better life than the one I scratched up
    E          B                       E     A
But until then, I thought that's who I was
                 E        A
That ain't who I was
