A Lot of Things Different

Lyricist: Dean Dillon & Bill Anderson    Composer: Dean Dillon & Bill Anderson

I'd of spent a lot more time in the pouring rain
Without an umbrella coverin' my head
And I'd have stood up to that bully when he pushed
And called me names
But I was too afraid
And I'd have gone on and saw Elvis that night he came to town
But momma said I couldn't
And I'd have went skinny dippin with Jenny Carson
That time she dared me to
But I didn't

Oh, I, I'd done a lot of things different

I wish I'd have spent more time with my dad when he was alive now
I don't have the chance
And I wish I had told my brother how much
I loved him before he went off to war,
But I just shook his hand
I wish I'd had gone to church on Sunday
Morning when my grandma begged me to
But I was afraid of God
And I wish I'd have listened when they said
Boy you're gonna wish you hadn't
But I wouldn't

Oh, I, I'd done a lot of things different

People say they wouldn't change a thing
Even if they could
Oh but I would

There was this red dress she wanted one time so bad she could taste it
I should of bought it, but I didn't
She wanted to paint our bedroom yellow and trim it in blues and greens
But I wouldn't let her, wouldn't have hurt nothin'
She loved to be held and kissed and touched
But I didn't do it not nearly enough
And if I'da known that dance was gonna be our last dance
I'da asked that band to play on and on, on and on

Oh, I, I'd done a lot of things different

People say they wouldn't change a thing
Even if they could, Oh but I would
Oh, oh

Oh, I, I'd done a lot of things different
Oh, I, I'd done a lot of things

I think we'd all do a lot of things different
