lyrics

The Way I Was Raised
By: Nate, David & Jonny Welch: The Welch Brothers

My definition of a good time
Well, it might be different than yours
My definition of Paradise
Might look a little bit more

Like a Radio
Cranked to eleven
On a country road
Free as a rolling stone

When I say bank, you think of money
But I'm talkin' 'bout the river side
When I say sweet, you think of honey
But I'm talkin' 'bout the pretty girl by my side

And I'm never gonna quit it
Never gonna give in
Never gonna change these ways

If that light's too bright to take
Then look away
That's just the way I was raised

My definition of bein' rich
Well it might be different than yours
My definition of happiness, might look a little bit more

Like a simple life
Why complicate it?
I'm a simple guy
And life's all about the ride

When I say bank, you think of money
But I'm talkin' 'bout the river side
When I say sweet, you think of honey
But I'm talkin' 'bout the pretty girl by my side

And I'm never gonna quit it
Never gonna give in
Never gonna change these ways

If that light's too bright to take
Then look away
That's just the way I was raised
That's just the way I was raised
That's just the way I was raised
