BACK IN THE DAY
(Bobby Starnes, Tim Stafford)

Billy was a wild child, his wanderlust was real
now he sells insurance, and he's living for a deal
Melinda had a love child when she was just sixteen
Now her baby's teaching college, and he's living out her dream

In this small town American clean
Norman Rockwell's homecoming queen
living, dying, finding our way
Life was good
Back in the day

Chuck was raised a quarterback, he could throw it deep and straight
And Bobby and Connie are still living their first date
Butch dropped out our senior year, then he taught us life was short
and Vickie took her own life when she couldn't take no more

Of this small town American clean
Norman Rockwell's homecoming queen
living, dying, finding our way
Life was just life
Back in the day

BR) Scattered near and far like seeds cast to the wind
Once we were wildcats, but you can't go back again

Randall moved to Charlotte, George lives in L.A.
Tina married a millionaire; she's a million miles away
Mickey's still in prison but Kevin played it safe
All of Ruby's children are still carrying the faith

of this small town American clean
Norman Rockwell's homecoming queen
living, dying, finding our way
Life was good
Back in the day

We were raised with a Rebel yell
Give 'em hell, Bloomingdale
living, dying, finding our way
Life was good
Back in the day
