    That's Why I'm Here by Kenny Chesney

    Well, I ain't had nothing to drink

    I knew that's probably what you think

    I dropped by this time of night

    Remember way back when

    I promised you I'd drop in

    To one of those meetings down at the Y?

    They start talking about steps you take,

    Mistakes you made and the hearts you break

    And the price you pay, I almost walked away

    You could hear a pin drop when this old man

    Stood up to say, "I'm gonna say it again,

    Like I do every week, for those who don't know me."

    It's the simple things in life

    Like the kids at home and a loving wife

    That you miss the most when you lose control

    Everything you love starts to disappear

    The devil takes your hand and says no fear

    Have another shot, just one more beer

    Yea, I've been there that's why I'm here.

    This old boy stood up in the aisle

    Said he'd been living the life of denial

    And he cried as he talked about wasted years

    I couldn't believe what I heard

    It was my life, word for word

    All of a sudden it was clear.

    It's the simple things in life

    Like the kids at home and a loving wife

    That you miss the most when you lose control

    Everything you love starts to disappear

    The devil takes your hand and says no fear

    Have another shot, just one more beer

    Yea, I've been there that's why I'm here.

    I know for us it might be too late

    It would mean the world to me

    If you were there when I stand to say.

    Oh, I've been there that's why I'm here...

    I'm a huge Kenny fan, but I have to say of all of his hits, this is my favorite. I think I cried the first time I heard it. I'm a BIKER for Christ's sake, we don't cry!....lol
