That Was Me

Jefferson Berry & Charlie O'Hay

Sometimes I’ll run into

Someone I Haven’t Seen

In a Longtime, perhaps from a job

I held just for a week
 

And they’ll quote me on something

I don’t remember saying,

perhaps while deep in the drink

 

And if I like the way it sounds

A smile will come around

And I’ll say

Yea, that was me

Even if it wasn’t that was me

That was me

But if I don’t like it

Is easy to deny

That was me

 

There’s a type of admiration that exists

Between salesmen and thieves

The art of the deal has feel

That just can’t be beat, and

As reputations build

A scheme makes its way back to me

 

And if it’s something I might have done

A battle I may have won, I’ll say

And if I like the way it sounds

A smile will come around

And I’ll say

Yea, that was me

Even if it wasn’t that was me

That was me

But if I don’t like it

Is easy to deny

That was me

 

Memories are simple fragile things

Now and then it’s better

To clip their wings

As a little voice inside me sings

That was me
