Sammy Kershaw Better Than I Used To Be Lyrics

Last updated: 08/10/2014 08:21:13 PM

I know how to hold a grudge
I can send a bridge up in smoke
and I can't count the people I've let down
or the hearts I've broke
you ain't gotta dig too deep if you wanna find some dirt on me
but I'm learnin' who you've been ain't who you've gotta be
It's gonna be an uphill climb
but honey I won't lie

I ain't no angel
but I've been sittin' out a few more dances with the devil
and cleanin' up my act little by little
I'm gettin' there
I can finally stand the man in the mirror I see
I ain't as good as I'm gonna get
but I'm better than I used to be

I've pinned a lot of demons to the ground
got a lot of old habits licked
but there's still one or two I might need you to help me kick
standin' in the rain so long has left me with a little rust
but put some faith in me
some day you'll see there's a diamond under all this dust

I ain't no angel
but I've been sittin' out a few more dances with the devil
and cleanin' up my act little by little
I'm gettin' there
I can finally stand the man in the mirror I see
I ain't as good as I'm gonna get
but I'm better than I used to be

I ain't no angel
but I've been sittin' out a few more dances with the devil
and cleanin' up my act little by little
I'm gettin' there
I can finally stand the man in the mirror I see
I ain't as good as I'm gonna get
but I'm better than I used to be

Sammy, you just get better and better. | Reviewer: Kim Greene | 8/10/14

I have always loved your music, please don't change. To many country singers start out country, then go more to a country rock. Just can't stand it when the back ground is louder than the performers. Saw you in Hinckley Minnesota with Joe and Aaron, loved your show please come back to Hinckley real soon. Sammy you are defiantly right up there with "the possum" so glad you are doing your tribute to him, he and Conway were my first loves in country music, along with Vern Gosdin, whom always brings tears to my eyes and a ache in my heart, isn't that what country song are all about, emotions. Keep doing what your doing, And Sammy always be true to yourself the rest will follow.Your new song refers to the man in the mirror which really is the wonderful poem "the man in the glass". Best of luck! And Bless your heart!
