Corey Smith - Maybe Next Year Lyrics

Times are a changing
But I'm still the same ol' son of a bitch in the wind
I act like I did back when I was a kid
But it hurts me more than it did back then
I go out on the town and make a fool of myself
I run around with the same rowdy friends
I get drunk and obnoxious
And wake up the next day swearin' I'm never drinkin' again

Yeah, my grandma still tells me
Enough is enough
Life ain't a game, son
It's time to grow up

Maybe next year, I'll start acting my age
Turn a new leaf over my wicked ways
Get a real job and start pullin' my weight
Only 365 days
Until I change my ways

I dress like a slob
I never tuck in my shirt
I let it hang over my baggy jeans
I wear an old baseball cap on the top of my head
With the logo of my favorite team
Still got the same dirty mouth that I've had
Since my first cousin taught me to cuss
And I just quit my 9 to 5 occupation
To play a whole bunch of songs I made up

Yeah, I'm a big ol' kid
But I ain't ashamed
'Cause when the time comes around
I know I can change


Maybe next year I'll quit blowin' all of the cash
Start working out and get off of my ass
Maybe next year I'll quit putting off all the chores
Maybe next year I'll visit my grandparents more
Maybe next year I'll go back to church and repent
Maybe next year I'll pick up my Bible again

I ought to straighten up
And there's no better time than now
To kick all the habits
That are bringin' me down

Maybe next year I won't be singin' the blues
Maybe next year I'll start telling the truth
Maybe next year I won't stay drunk all the time
Maybe next year I'll have a little more peace of mind
And maybe next year
I won't be so sad when I'm alone

Maybe next year

  11. These Hands

    sam mallory, your an ignorant blinded dumbass who wouldnt know talent or hardwork if it was your own parents. Do the world a favor and try harder to be a better decent person, or get hit by a bus...

  15. Cynthia Boggs

    Youre a bitch.

  16. Nick Murphy

    I agree with most people on here, I really like Corey but his first few albums were much better than his more recent stuff. He does new versions of his old songs, but the old songs were perfect the way they were. And he is still very good live!

  17. Dana Moore

    i think we are all use to the normal corey not the type with all the extra stuff in the back ground!

  18. Joey Frongillo

    Remember "If thats Country"? Sucks that all of his music sucks now. Quit representing his favorite teams. Dude sold out and got shitty.

  32. sam mallory

    @lilgoss912 I am neither a teenager and you lost sight of trying to make fun of me by assuming. Great you like his try hard voice but I wonder how you feel about Brits who sing with American accents ... Thanks for saying I look like a teen though. as for being in my mid 30's that boosts the ego. Please enlighten me about real music. I am sure "real" country music fans from the "good ole days" would laugh and call this fluff pop music. Oh but I guess you new that right Twitty ....

  33. Mitch Gaikowski

    @lilgoss912 dude it just the teenagers that dont have a brother or sister old enough to
    show them the way im 15 and i love this song

  34. cdtnplyr
