Aldean, Jason - Better At Being Who I Am Lyrics




Well you never liked them much
But I broke out these old boots again
Gonna jump in that old truck
Head down to the bar and hang out with an old friend
Been a while since I fired up a cigarette
And got drunk on some draft beer
Well where I'm going tonight
There's a good chance you won't want me back here
I tried to be what you were looking for
But I can't do that anymore

I'm better at being at who I am
Better at letting my rebel run
And nothing about me worth a damn
If I can't be my old man's son
Your world and mine are worlds apart
This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
Being something that ain't never had a chance
I'm better at being who I am

I wasn't ever gonna change
I don't know who in the hell I thought I was kiddin'
For a little while there it seemed like the sex would make it all alright but it didn't
This ain't my side of the tracks
I got good at forgetting that

I'm better at being who I am
Better at letting my rebel run
Ain't nothing about me worth a damn
If I can't be my old man's son
Your world and mine are worlds apart
This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
Being something I ain't never had a chance
I'm better at being back on my side of town
Back down to earth
A blue jean boy and a flannel shirt
I'm just not what you deserve
For what it's worth, for what it's worth

I'm better at being at who I am
Better at letting my rebel run
And nothing about me is worth a damn
If I can't be my old man's son
Your world and mine are worlds apart
This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
Being something I ain't never had a chance
I'm better at being who I am

    BETTER AT BEING WHO I AM (Neil Thrasher, Casey Beathard, Wendell Mobley)
    I know you never liked ’em much but I broke out these old boots again
    Gonna jump in that ol’ truck head down to the bar and hang out with an old friend
    Been a while since I fired up a cigarette and got drunk on some draft beer
    Where I’m going tonight there’s a good chance you won’t want me back here
    I tried to be what you were looking for
    But I can’t do that anymore

    CHORUS
    I’m better at being who I am
    Better at lettin’ my rebel run
    Ain’t nothing about me worth a damn
    If I can’t be my old man’s son
    Your world and mine are worlds apart
    This square peg round hole thing’s too hard
    Being something I ain’t never had a chance
    I’m better at being who I am

    I wasn’t never gonna change I don’t know who in the hell I thought I was kidding
    For a little while there seemed like the sex would make it all alright but it didn’t
    This ain’t my side of the tracks
    I got good at forgetting that

    REPEAT CHORUS

    Back on my side of town back down to earth a blue jean boy in a flannel shirt
    I’m just not what you deserve for what it’s worth for what it’s worth

    REPEAT CHORUS

  70. nathanael harwood

    Good job Jason Aldean. Sometimes we try to be this other person. Then we realize we can't do that and we're better at being who we are. God Bless You man.

  71. John Leroy

    live this...to Eddie Montgomery......no fake in him....Fly T-roy...

  72. Vtwin Hick

    This song speaks volumes to me, actually made me realize I had to leave what I was in. I was trying too hard to be who I wasn't. It wasn't her trying to change me, it was as he said "your world and mine are worlds apart". I did basically what this song said on a regular. My country biker ass would end up going to a pub in my faded jeans, leather vest and work boots. A look she always hated. She came from a family of money and privilege from the city, I was always a blue collar hard working man that grew up in a small remote northern town. We always fought about our differences. I loved her, but I wasn't happy being who I was when I was with her and always felt like I was a disappointment to her. I still don't think she understands why I left. She hates my guts and can't stand seeing me when we run into each other. But I know what I did was for the best. She'll be happier without me, and I'll be happier letting my rebel run.

    Nic Costa

    Couldn’t agree with you more. She wasn’t the one, been there done that, drank the whiskey, got the t shirt. Don’t ever let a beautiful woman get in the way of you being who you are as a man!

    Cody F

    👌🏻

  73. chris cooper

    Man did I need to hear this one.

  74. Chris Schultz

    I'm almost 18 now and I can never explain why i can relate to this guy. I love your music Jason keep them coming. Team Aldean is so cool. I've been listening to Jason since amarillo sky & i still listen!!

  75. Carlie, and the rest. Newton's the same thing

    jason always keep the truth on life

  76. Austin Ford

    Bein a good ole country boy, and joinin the Marine Corps I feel like I lost my shot to do what I've always wanted to. I've always wanted to sing country music. Jason Aldean has always been one of my inspirations. And I've always been told I need to do somethin with my voice. I just never thought I was talented enough.

    LaFlama Blanca

    Austin Ford go for it man! Don’t live the rest of your life saying what if, chase your dream

    linda staton

    If someone is letting go of things in there life it's a good song

    Melinda Shrewsbury

    Your good enough for anything you proved that already to your country And yourself, build that confidence and you'll have your dream

  77. drugdog Anthony

    I just got out of a relationship where she wanted me too quit fighting, drinking, she wanted me to forget about going to the military. It was just a horrible toxic relationship. I sent her this song and the next text I get is of her breaking up with me. Thank you Jason for saying what I couldn't.

    christopher huron

    Damn sorry to hear that bro...idk why people feel like they need to change someone.we're individuals ya know?

    Acasti Castillo

    Dont send me nthn else.im done I don't want.a cheating lying hustler. So be u... N enjoy life love u always just let me go to be pleas

  78. Robin Luce

    Perfect! Jason never disapoints!!!!❤🔥❤🔥

    tamie pucek

    That is a fact

  79. Chastity Bouwkamp

    Run Rebel Run.... Better at whom I am............

  80. Rachel Bailey

    Better at being who I am... love this

  81. Robert Pittus

    Damn Right

  82. Jessica Edmonds

    I think this will definitely be another number one for him . Such an incredible song !

  83. Connie Presley

    A lot of truth in these words with a lot of couples that are trying to make it to the end?? Some manage to succeed !! But a lot of us Don’t and it’s the truth in these lyrics that make us part Love. Another song choice that explains a Hell of a reason why the end is Divorce😔

  84. Serena Oliveira

    Well you never liked them much
    But I broke out these old boots again
    Gonna jump in that old truck
    Head down to the bar and hang out with an old friend

    Been a while since I fired up a cigarette
    And got drunk on some draft beer
    Well where I’m going tonight
    There’s a good chance you won’t want me back here
    I tried to be what you were looking for
    But I can’t do that anymore

    I'm better at being at who I am
    Better at letting my rebel run
    Ain't nothing about me worth a damn
    If I can’t be my old man’s son
    Your world and mine are worlds apart
    This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
    Being something that ain't never had a chance
    I’m better at being who I am

    I wasn’t ever gonna change
    I don’t know who in the hell I thought I was kiddin’
    For a little while there it seemed like the sex would make it all alright but it didn’t
    This ain’t my side of the tracks
    I got good at forgetting that

    I’m better at being who I am
    Better at letting my rebel run
    Ain’t nothing about me worth a damn
    If I can’t be my old man’s son
    Your world and mine are worlds apart
    This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
    Being something I ain’t never had a chance
    I’m better at being back on my side of town
    Back down to earth
    A blue jean boy and a flannel shirt
    I’m just not what you deserve
    For what it’s worth, for what it’s worth

    I'm better at being at who I am
    Better at being where I'm from
    Ain't nothing about me worth a damn
    If I can’t be my old man’s son
    Your world and mine are worlds apart
    This 'square peg, round hole' thing's too hard
    Being something I ain't never had a chance
    I’m better at being who I am

  85. Alan Bradley

    Fits me to a t

  86. Ngamgongmei Phaomei

    Jason alway an best country singer love you from India

  87. pbwgodofdeath

    Dedicated this to my ex fiance. Your better off without a loser like me.

  88. Happiness

    Great Song Jason

  89. Debrah Stevens

    [email protected]: Jason has a few songs on this new CD that sound like his early music--Some of the songs that weren't releases are my favorites. There's never a throwaway song, and he cuts 15, 16 plus songs. That's what talent, hard work, and risk can do for you

  90. Patrick Miller

    I tried to be what you were looking for. But I can't do that anymore.

  91. Bonnie Evans

    New music believe me it worth every word you sing the steel guitar give me the chills you finally found yourself

  92. Daryl Niemi

    One of the most amazing story tellers and vocalist in country music today. Pure country at its finest. Just throw on a pair of head phones and get completely lost in his voice. Amazing Tallent that I don't feel gets enough recognition. Just like a fine wine or bottle of whiskey he just gets better with age.

  93. aenance N

    Good song..i feel like i know hin i grew up with him ..hes the best

  94. Trey Cecil

    From growing up in a very small town and keeping my roots very well upkept but i moved away in pursuit of something...more so to speak, and i lost myself in some degree. I was too busy for my friends, family and even myself. Lost in a deadend relationship that 3 years invested shattered, this song came on and stopped me in tracks and i want anyone who reads this to stop and think. Are you who you dreamed youd be as a person, not a career, not a nice truck or tons of money. Just your characters. How others see you. You can only make that changes yourself. I know i am. God bless.

  95. T G

    Hey this sounds like COUNTRY ,wtf?🤣...No,for real the songs great,sounds like the old Jason Aldean ,not this new crap Nashville has been shoving down out collective country throats for the last decade or so.Thanks Jason for doing you again.

  96. jimmy9047

    if anyone has album version of brian davis drink a beer with ya and under the influence please put on youtube thank you.
