Keith Anderson - Closest I've Ever Been Lyrics


(Keith Anderson/Bobby Pinson)

Closest I’ve ever been to meetin’ Jesus was when
Me and Bobby Pinson put up our pink slips on Blue Hole Road
My needle showin’ ninety, I flew right by him
Lighting fast ‘til I had a bad Goodyear blow
That ol’ Chevy rolled and rolled and I know
Heaven must’ve heart the words beneath my breath and I
Thank God I ain’t there yet

Chorus:
That’s the closest I’ve ever been
To never seein’ my momma again
Found out quick how precious life is
Drive my new truck a little slower than I did
That’s the smallest I’ve ever felt
That’s the furthest I’ve ever fell
Not too far to find out how life ends
That’s the closest I’ve ever been

Closest I’ve ever been to bein’ the devil’s friend was when
Shelly gave in to me and him down by the river
I gave her my heart and my jacket, still ain’t got ‘em back yet
She left me hurtin’ and searchin’ for love or liquor or whatever
Quicker than I could say sin I slipped further in than I was plannin’
I never shook the devil’s hand, but I drank his whiskey and I loved his women

2nd Chorus

That’s the closest I’ve ever been
To tellin’ God to hell with Him
Goin’ down in flames, and layin’ the blame
Why would He ever let her walk away
That’s the smallest I’ve ever felt
That’s the furthest I’ve ever fell
But not too far for God to forgive
And I thank God that’s the closest I’ve ever been
Got it all behind me and every day I’m findin’
Another way to be the best man I can
And I’m the closest I’ve ever been
Closest I’ve ever been, closest I’ve ever been

[Thanks to Lee for lyrics]
