There's still marks on the pantry door of that little house Where Mama used to measure us I'm proud to say that's my home where I was raised But that ain't where I grew up See, I gained a little on Father Time The summer my Granddaddy died The first time I saw Mama cry Man, that sure was tough Felt like I put on a few years Watching Daddy wipe her tears In my little coat and tie standing in that cemetery mud That's where I grew up My senior year, a case of beer out on the river bank Getting a head start on twenty one That's the place that made me feel just like a man But that ain't where I grew up, no See I gained a little on Father Time That night I crossed that center line I bet I rolled a dozen times Next thing I knew I was waking up upside down Praying "God, just get me out" Then I hit my knees beside what was left of my truck Hey, that's where I grew up You learn as you go, that's how you grow See, I gained a little on Father Time When me and her, had our first big fight I said some things, I made her cry She packed all her stuff The boy in me said let her go But the man in me said pull her close It was time to find out which one I was Standing in a doorway holding on to love That's where I grew up Oh, that's where I grew up
