That Was Us  Randy Travis

That Was Us
written by Tony Lane and Craig Wiseman
Twenty [G]dollars out of mama's [C]purse bought us a [G]tank of gas
And some Redman to[C]bacco, when we were just [G]teenage kids[D] [C]
[G]Me and my old buddy L[C]eRoy we'd go d[G]rivin' around
If there was trouble [C]to be found, man we d[G]ang sure did
Cuttin' [Em]donuts in the [D]fields so Old Man [C]Smith would call the cops
And he'd come [Em]runnin' out with a [D]shotgun 'cause we were [C]runnin' down his crops
And I [Am]reckon he's still [G]wonderin' who that [C]was[D]
But that was [G]us[C] [D]
Now some of these [G]local boys moved [C]on but we never c[G]hanged a bit
Never had a l[C]ick of sense, 'least that's what [G]some folks said[D] [C]
Then f[G]inally we turned [C]old enough to buy [G]our own beer
Don't remember much [C]about that year, just lucky [G]we ain't dead
Now som[Em]ebody said they [D]saw some boys with a [C]truck looked just like mine
Tryin' to [Em]pull down that old w[D]atertank that sits [C]out on the county line
And people [Am]wonder why it [G]leans the way it [C]does[D]
That was [G]us
Seems like [Em]small towns never c[D]hange but things get [C]tough when times get hard
They [Em]said when he got [D]sick Old Man S[C]mith woulda lost that farm
'Cause he was [Am]gettin' way b[G]ehind on all his [C]bills
'Til some[Am]body brought his [G]crops in from the [C]fields
Yeah and [Am]folks 'round here still [G]wonder who that [C]was.[D]..
[G] [C] [D] That was us
