I Came Here To Live lyrics - Brad Cotter

I Came Here To Live
(T Lane)

I grew up in a town where tough was a cigarette
And a jacked up truck on a county road
Nothing much to do back then, so we'd make bets
On how much drink a guy could hold
And I held my own, I learned to hold my own

Daddy worked some dead end job at the tire plant
Momma taught the Sunday Bible Class
For 19 years I remember thinking
There had to be more to life than that
So I ran the streets to beat the devil
Going just as fast as I could fly
Cause I came here to live
I didn't come here die

Momma used to wait for me with porch light on
Worried about her little boy till I got home
Daddy he'd say listen son
But back then there wasn't much
That I didn't already know

I reckon I was doing close to 80
When I felt the tires slip out from underneath
And I never set out looking for Jesus
So thank God he came looking for me
And he found me upside down in a ditch
With the smoke and gasoline in my eyes
He said Son you came here to live
You didn't come here to die

Sunday morning I got up and went to church
That summer I got a job and I went to work
I meet a little girl in town
Put a little money down
On a little house with a yard

Our little boy was due in September
But he came early in July
For 18 days all I remember
Was sitting at his side
Saying son open up your eyes
Just open up your eyes
Cause you came here to live
You didn't come here to die
You came here to live.......
