Jinks, Cody - Been Around Lyrics




I don't run from guilt you see my conscience lets me know at least a thousand times or better every day
Things I've done mistakes I've made, raised feelings I'll lay in some grave if ever I am finally laid to rest

If there's time to pray before I die, I pray dear Lord you know that I was a righteous man that somehow lost his way
Face me down when I shall pass so the world can kiss my ass and Hell can't come and get me from behind

I've danced in the flames and I've been burned I've walked on the harder side of life, I've takin' all the wrong turns
I've been around, I've been down, and I've been wasted
I fight with myself, sometimes I lose, I got me an angel on my shoulder but I've got the devil too, I get down I get around I get wasted

Twenty-seven years along I've tried to make them right all wrong and I've nearly died a few times on my way
Well, I've seen the face of God first hand and I've danced with the devil man, I've needed help and grab for both of their hands

I've danced in the flames and I've been burned I've walked on the harder side of life I've takin' all the wrong turns
I've been around, I've been down, I've been wasted
I fight with myself sometimes I lose, I got me an angel on my shoulder but I've got the devil too, I get down I get around I get wasted

I fight with myself, sometimes I lose, I got me an angel on my shoulder but I've got the devil too, I get down I get around I get wasted

I don't run from guilt you see my conscience lets me know at least a thousand times or better every day

  40. Christopher Robertson

    Seen him open for Jamey Johnson June 17 in my home town Durant ok.... lets just say crowd was chanting for Cody even when Jamey was on stage. Jamey Johnson is the man and he played with a huge band, multiple drummers horn section etc, but Cody is such the real deal that I don't think its wise to have him as your opener. Jamey did call Cody on stage and the whole place was chanting Cody Cody Cody! it gave you chill bumps was flippin awesome! You go Denton/Ft worth boy! I guarantee ill see more shows. Thank you Mr. Jinks.

    HELL TO THE FREAKING COUNTRY BOY YEAH!!!!!! Thank you father and God bless you Cody Jinks.

Brother Cody you're true and you definitely are the America I grew up in and the true backbone of what this country's country heartland is really truly about my friend. To bring honor back to my ancestors and the working men and women, through the no sugar coating lyrics of the cold hearted truth in your songs. I used to stuck between a memory and a dream, but now listening to your music brother. My happy memories from my life's journey, has brought on happy dreams of my tomorrow. I truly thank you with all my heart, for the inspiration and drive to change my zipcode from 1313 lost highway to there is heaven in life avenue. All I pray that you do, is keep being you and never sell out to the man. YOU'RE AWESOME AND YOU RESTORED MY FAITH NOT ONLY IN MYSELF BUT THAT AMERICA IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! Thanks my friend
