Luke Combs – Used to Wish I Was Lyrics

Used to Wish I Was By Luke Combs

When I was sixteen, I had running back dreams
that never did run too far
Thought I was gonna be number three one day,
’til I wrecked my old man’s car
I almost finished college but I ain’t cut from that cloth
I used to wish I was, but I’m glad I’m not

I’m just an ol’ Carolina good ol’ boy
Boys I ain’t got no choice
I pick a little guitar in the evening
Wear Mossy Oak outta deer season
I couldn’t be anybody but me, even if I tried
I used to wish I was, but I’m glad I’m not

I used to have a Tennessee Bill Dance hat
but barely ever got ’em in the boat
I used to wanna hit ’em like Chipper did
but I swung it just a little too slow
But these days I don’t wanna be anybody but me
I used to wish I was, but I’m glad I’m not

I’m just an ol’ Carolina good ol’ boy
Boys I ain’t got no choice
I pick a little guitar in the evening
Wear Mossy Oak outta deer season
I couldn’t be anybody but me, even if I tried
I used to wish I was, but I’m glad I’m not

Yeah these days I don’t wanna be anybody but me
I used to wish I was, but I’m glad I’m not

I’m just an ol’ Carolina good ol’ boy
Boys I ain’t got no choice
I pick a little guitar in the evening
Wear Mossy Oak outta deer season
I couldn’t be anybody but me, even if I tried
I used to wish I was, but I’m glad I’m not
Yeah I’m glad I’m not
