Rival Sons All the Way Lyrics

When I was young, sometimes I'd be a bad boy
My pop would sit my down, he pulled his belt back on tight
He'd say, "Apologize to your sister, treat the women right"
And I'd say, "Hm, hm" and he'd give me that look, and I'd say, "Yes sir"
Well that happened many more times, due to various reasons

They said I was a colourful boy
I didn't play ball, so I couldn't get the chicks
'Til I picked up a guitar and learned a couple licks and I went...
Well, it didn't exactly sound like that, but anyhow, you get the picture

But I found my focus, and I found my steam
For the rest of my life I'm gonna fight for this singin'
Oh, this time I'm going all the way
This time I'm going all the way
This time I'm going all the way
This time I'm going all the way

And after that, everything changed
I got what I wanted, oh
But my hunger stayed the same

Now that I'm older I still go to learn things twice
When we first met, you were looking for a man
I was acting like a boy, and you gave me the hand and you said, "Hm, hm"
I was so used to gettin' what I wanted ("Hm, hm")
Well that happened many more times,
due to various reasons, usually, whiskey

But you gave me another chance, and this time it's good
It's all down for romance, treat me like I should and you'd say
"Baby baby, baby baby"
Well you don't exactly say that, but anyhow, you get the picture

But we got our focus, and we got our steam
For the rest of my life we're gonna fight for this dream, you know
This time we're going all the way
This time we're going all the way
This time we're going all the way
This time we're going all the way

Alright now, bring it down
I got one more thing to say

So if you get it wrong, go back and do it right
Find out what you love, hold on to it tight
This time we're going all the way
This time we're going all the way
This time we're going all the way
This time we're going all the way
