I Go Back
Kenny Chesney Lyrics


"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 every time I hear that song

I go back to a two-toned short bed Chevy
Drivin' my first love out to the levy
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
Every time I hear that song, I go back, I go back

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

I go back to the smell of an old gym floor
And 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
Every time 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
Every time I hear that song, I go back, I go back

To the feel of a fifty yard line
A blanket, a girl, some raspberry wine
I go back (I go back)
To watchin' summer fade to fall
Growin' up too fast and I do recall
I go back (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

Every time I hear this song, I go back as well. Like taking the car for a ride around town with music blasting and waiting to "Grow up" so I could leave my city. I was without a care in the world. Little did I know that being an adult and your life flashes 15 years in the blink of an eye. Cherish every moment! Life goes fast. The days go slow but the years are fast.

This song hits extra hard in 2021. I think about 90s when things were so much simpler. Sure back in that day I truly loved my first girl and lost my first good friend but when looking at the bigger picture outside of myself, society was just better. People were nicer. Things were less complicated. I miss it.

me to i miss the way it use to be ,,,,,,,,,,

I go back to when this song was released. I was 19 and wondering what the hell he was talking about. Kids, it'll happen to you!
