Oh, if I had a big 'ol eraser
I'd start from today
And go back through life's pages
And correct a lot of things
Yeah, steppin' on toes with my foot in my mouth
Yeah, thought I was the king
But that was back
Back when I knew everything

Yeah,a good hard head and no regrets
Is what I thought made the man
But now life's hard knocks is about all I've got
And sorry's what I am
Yeah,I had my old worn out opinion
Oh,and I sure made it plain
But that was back
Back when I knew everything

So what you say forgive and forget
One more chance is all I need
Yeah, this 'ol loose cannon is a mighty long shot
This time I'm askin' please
Yeah that's right I was wrong
Now all that I can say
Is that was back
Back when I knew everything

A little too big for a britcher
But life's a whittled me down to size
I just hope there's enough of me left to apologize

So what you say forgive and forget
One more chance is all I need
Yeah, this 'ol loose cannon is a mighty long shot
This time I'm askin' please
Yeah that's right I was wrong
Now all that I can say
Is that was back
Back when I knew everything

Oh, that was back
Back when I knew everything
