I've Got The Scars To Prove It Lyrics

These are the lyrics to song I've Got The Scars To Prove It as performed by The Road Hammers

I shake my head in disbelief
At all my self-inflicted grief
Had a strong right hand, I wasn't afraid to use it

My mama preached till her face was blue
But not a damn word seemed to make it through
I've got the scars to prove it

I ran on whiskey and burned like gas
I went too far, I went too fast
I'd light a fire just to walk right through it

Busted bones, dreams and tears
Tattoo my heart like souvenirs
Life is just a word till you go through it
I've got the scars to prove it

I lost good friends over foolish pride
Drank with the devil just to feel alive
I'd build a mountain, then I'd try to move it

Yeah, and I thought that I was pretty tough
Till I was brought down by a woman's touch
I got the scars to prove it

I ran on whiskey and burned like gas
I went too far, I went too fast
I'd light a fire just to walk right through it

Busted bones, dreams and tears
Tattoo my heart like souvenirs
Life is just a word till you go through it
I've got the scars to prove it

Now and then regrets may find me
But these marks are here to remind me
Of where I went wrong, what made me strong
And how I've moved on

I ran on whiskey and burned like gas
I went too far, I went too fast
I'd light a fire just to walk right through it

Busted bones, dreams and tears
Tattoo my heart like souvenirs
Life is just a word till you go through it
I've got the scars to prove it
