Tracy Lawrence If The Good Die Young

It was Sunday morning I was seven years old in the backyard playing in a big mud hole

I was all decked out ready for church and my brand new suit was all covered in dirt

Mama hit the ceiling she was fit to be tied talking bout how she’s gonna tan my hide

Daddy was laughing as I changed my clothes said mama leave the boy alone

Cause if the good die young if the good die young

Mama’s little boy gonna have a lot of fun

Cause he’s gonna live forever if the good die young

[ guitar ]

Ten years later I had a hot rod Ford constable clocked me at a hundred and four

Judge said boy you’re gonna hurt yourself

You’d a long been dead if you were anybody else

Cause if the good die young if the good die young

Oh there ain’t a sentence gonna hold you son

Cause you’re gonna live forever if the good die young

[ fiddle ]

Well I’ve got a good heart I wouldn’t hurt a soul

But I’m gonna keep rocking till they call that roll

Old St Pete he’s gonna have to wait I’m gonna go to Heaven but I might be late

Cause if the good die young Lord if the good die young

Pedal to the metal let your motor run

Cause I’m gonna live forever if the good die young

If the good die young Lord if the good die young

They got the jams I got the fun

I’m gonna live forever if the good die young

Yeah I’m gonna live forever if the good die young
