Jerrod Niemann The One That Got Away Lyrics

Last updated: 12/08/2011 10:00:00 AM

There we were just small town fools
Learning more from each other than we did in school
Living on love, a couple bucks and an old Ford truck

We graduated, had the summer to kill
Spent most of our nights parked in a wheat field
Time flew by, with September came goodbye
She promised me she'd come back someday
She's still the one that got away

Still got a way of making me feel
Like I'm eighteen and the world's standing still
Tailgates down, no one's around for days

Still got a way of touching my skin like
I haven't felt since way back when
Oh, what I'd give to have her here today
She's still the one that got away
I'm not sure who's to blame
From that moment on it was never the same
Soon we were through
I heard she found someone new

When I look back it tears me apart
She took my leather jacket and a piece of my heart
And I wonder if I ever cross her mind
It's been years, feels like yesterday
She's still the one that got away

Still got a way of making me feel
Like I'm eighteen and the world's standing still
Tailgates down, no one's around for days

Still got a way of touching my skin like
I haven't felt since way back when
Oh, what I'd give to have her here today
She's still the one that got away
She's still the one that got away

There we were just small town fools
Learning more from each other than we did in school
Living on love, a couple bucks and an old Ford truck
