There's still a mark on the pantry door of that little house
Where Mama used to measure us
I'm proud to say that's my home where I was raised
But, that ain't where I grew up

See, I gained a little on Father Time
The summer my grandaddy died
The first time I saw Mama cry,
Man, that sure was tough
Felt like I put on a few more years
Watchin' Daddy wipe her tears
In my little coat and tie satndin' in that cemetary mud
That's where I grew up

My senior year, a case of beer out on the river bank
Gettin' a head start on twenty-one
That's the place that made me feel just like a man
But that ain't where I grew up

No

See, I gained a little on Father Time
The night I crossed that center line
I bet a rolled a dozen times
Next thing I knew, I was
Wakin' up upside down
Praying, "God, just get me out"
Then I hit my knees beside what was left of my truck
Hey, that's where I grew up

You learn as you go
That's how you grow

See, I gained a little on Father Time
When me and her had our first big fight
I said some things, I made her cry
She packed all her stuff
The boy in me said, "Let 'er go"
But the man in me said, "Pull her close"
It was time to find out which one I was
Standin' in the doorway holdin' on to love
That's where I grew up

Oh, that's where I grew up
