I've been away so long I hardly knew the place
It's been too long since I've been around
Just like I rolling stone I ain't go no home
But my boys are back in town

It's been two long years that I've been on the run
From lawyers, lovers, monies and a lawman's son
You though tit was the last you heard from me
Well you better back up to catch up with me

'Cause I'm livin' in the fast, speeding like a steam train
Just before I fall, just before I fall off the track

Taking it back
I'm taking it back
Taking it back
You took it away, took it away
All I can say is we're taking it back

I'm the same old dog that I used to be
The word's all over town that you've been looking for me
I'm no different that I was before
Give you what you need and then I'm out the door

'Cause I'm livin' in the fast lane, coming like a hurricane
A snake without a rattle, baby that's a matter of fact

Taking it back
Taking it back
Taking it back
You took it away, took it away
All I can say is we're taking it back

I've been away so long it's good to see your face
Barkeep, won't you buy me a round'
Raise a glass to the good times past
Then we'll tear this damn place down

Taking it back
Taking it back
Taking it back
Taking it back
