Going Back


She says ‒ Okay, Blondie and the Eurythmics made an impression. Sue me.

"Jack and Diane" painted a picture of my life and my dreams,
Suddenly this crazy world made more sense to me
Well I heard it today and I couldn't help but sing along
Cause everytime I hear that song...

I go back to a two toned short bed Chevy
Drivin my first love out to the levvy
Livin life with no sense of time
And I go back to the feel of a fifty yard line
A blanket, a girl, some raspberry wine
Wishin time would stop right in its tracks
Everytime I hear that song, I go back

I used to rock all night long to "Keep On Rockin Me Baby"
Frat parties, college bars, just tryin to impress the ladies
I heard it today and I couldn't help but sing along
Cause everytime I hear that song....

I go back to the smell of an old gym floor
The taste of salt on the Carolina shore
After graduation and drinkin goodbye to friends
And I go back to watchin summer fade to fall
Growin up too fast and I do recall
Wishin time would stop right in its tracks
Everytime I hear that song, I go back, I go back

We all have a song that somehow stamped our lives
Takes us to another place and time

So I go back to a pew,preacher, and a choir
Singin bout God, brimstone, and fire
And the smell of Sunday chicken after church
And I go back to the loss of a real good friend
And the sixteen summers I shared with him
Now "Only The Good Die Young" stops me in my tracks
Everytime I hear that song,

I go back....
To the feel of a fifty yard line
A blanket, a girl, some raspberry wine
I go back....
To watchin summer fade to fall
Growin up too fast and I do recall...
I go back....
To the loss of a real good friend
And the sixteen summers I shared with him...
I go back... I go back... I go back


Kenny Chesney ‒ I Go Back

I thought this was a different song by Petty or Mellonhead I mean camp. Isn't Chesney that Kurt Cobain looking guy? It's not Christmas yet.

She says -

Grant - Geez. "Jack and Diane" doesn't make you pine away for listening to Mellonhead in your youth, and the things you were doing at that age? It's not like I suggested that things "Hurt So Good."

Bard - I know the song is on your double-wide CD collection. And Kenny is no stranger in your house. It stands to reason that every now and then, you "Go Back" too. Or maybe you just liked the hair styles and poly-esther suits. Officially, the answer to your question is "Older than dirt." But not as old as you!!

Yup, I go back quite often, it seems. Have a lot of friends I left back there. Later
