A Man Who Was Gonna Die Young
Eric Church Song Lyrics

Artist: Eric Church
Album: The Outsiders (2014)


[Verse 1]
I like fast cars, and shop grease
Chased a lot of crazy things
Left behind my share of broken pieces
This morning I turned 36, and you just remember half of it
You wonder how you out-lived hank and jesus

[Chorus]
I put the rage in a river, the roll in a thunder
But you kept me from goin' under,
When that current got too heavy
I always thought I'd be a heap of metal
In a cloud of smoke, foot stuck to the pedal
Sold for parts like a junkyard rusted-out chevy
Fear, I've had none
What the hell made you want to love
A man, who was gonna die young

[Verse 2]
In the mirror, I saw my surprise
When those gray hairs like to hide, on my head
Didn't think he'd live past thirty
If I make it thirty more, it's the brown that you'll be looking for
As you run your fingers through, say 'slow down, honey'

[Chorus]
I put the rage in a river, the roll in a thunder
But you kept me from goin' under,
When that current got too heavy
I always thought I'd be a heap of metal
In a cloud of smoke, foot stuck to the pedal
Sold for parts like a junkyard rusted-out chevy
Fear, I've had none
What the hell made you want to love
A man, who was gonna die young

[Verse 3]
Call it intuition, or call it crazy
Just thought by now I'd be pushing up daisies
But I'd gladly stick around if we're together
So baby when you bow your head tonight
Could you tell the lord I've changed my mind?
And with you I'd like to live, well...
