I remember my first 30 years
Gettin by was all I could do
Tryin to get over all my fears
Now how about you?
I did things that don't make me proud.
I even smoked a little grass
It took some time but I realize now
I don't liuve in my past
I used to party till the cows came wonderin home
But thats not what I am today or the values I hold
You may judge by the length of my hair Or even my tatoo
By what I drive or what I wear
Or if I sit in your pew
I used to worry I Must admit
What people said at my back
But I got news for you hypocrites... I don't live in my past
I used to party till the cows came wanderin home
But Iv'e coma coma long long way since those days I was stoned
I'm a changed man Can't you see it in my walk
A rearranged Man Cabn't you hear it in my talk
Redeemed Man I don't look back
Be a changed man Don't live in your past
