as good as i once was lyrics – toby keith

she said, “i’e seen you in here before.”
i said, “i’ve been here a time or two.”
she said, “h*llo, my
name is bobby jo
meet my twin sister betty lou
and we’re both feeling kinda wild tonight
and you’re the only cowboy in this place
and if you’re up for a rodeo
we’ll put a big texas smile on
your face”
i said, “girls,”

[chorus]
i ain’t as good as i once was
i got a few years on me now
but there was a time back in my prime

when i could really lay it down
and if you need some love tonight
then i might have just enough
i ain’t as good as i once was
but i’m as good once as i ever was

i still hang out with my best friend dave
ive known him since we were kids at school
last night he
had a few shots
got in a tight spot hustlin’ a game of pool
with a couple of redneck boys
one great
big bad biker man
i heard david yell across the room
“hey buddy, how ’bout a helping hand.”
i said, “dave,”

[chorus]
i ain’t as good as i once was
my how the years have flown
but there was a time back in my prime

when i could really hold my own
but if you wanna fight tonight
guess thouse boys dont look all that
tough
i ain’t as good as i once was
but i’m as good once as i ever was

i used to be h*ll on wheels
back when i was younger man
now my body says, “you can’t do this boy”

but my pride says, “oh, yes you can

i ain’t as good as i once was
thats just the cold hard truth
i still throw a few back, talk a little smack
when i’m feelin bullet proof
so don’t double dog dare me now
’cause i’d have to call your bluff

i ain’t as good as i once was
but i’m as good once as i ever was
maybe not be good as i once was
but i’m as good once as i ever was
