Bobby's Back

Brian Setzer


Well c'mon, man, I hear that Bobby's back
from being upstate
He learned his lesson, so they say, well I guess we'll
wait and see
He's got a new corvette, he says it does a hundred
and twenty, easy
Got some catchin' up to do, some crazy score to settle
When I first heard Bobby's back, the first thing
that I thought of
Was how his chic like up and left with some guy
she just met
I don't think that he knew it yet, man it
sent a chill right through me
The only thing he ever loved just left with his last
paycheck
Bobby's back, maybe for good this time
All his life, he was the last in line
Bobby's back, maybe for good this time
All my life, he was a friend of mine
Bobby's face looked pale and thin, as if some ghost had
haunted him
When he asked me what was new, I wasn't quite
sure what to say
How come everybody's stickin' bloody fingers in my face?
I almost cried and said, "They sure don't make cars
like they use to"
Bobby's back, maybe for good this time
All his life, he was the losing kind
Bobby's back, maybe for good this time
All his life, he never had peace of mind
I shook him hard and said, "Listen, man,
you can't go back in time again"
And never 'til the day that I die
did I see tears fall from Bobby's eyes
Four or five years had gone by when I read about
how Bobby died
He crashed his car into a wall, messed up on drugs
and alcohol
Another brother led astray, well I'lll be damned
if I go that way
Say a little prayer for him
he lived a life you just can't win
Bobby's back, maybe for good this time
All his life, he was the last in line
Bobby's back, maybe for good this time
Bobby's gone, he was a friend of mine
