Lyrics to "Where I Grew Up" by "Kenny Chesney"


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 upSee, I gained a little on Father Time
The summer my Granddaddy died
The first time I saw Mama cry
Man, that sure was toughFelt 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, noSee 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 wasWaking 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 upYou learn as you go, that's how you growSee, 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 loveThat's where I grew up
Oh, that's where I grew up
