The Best Thing That I Had Goin’ – Brad Paisley

Finally got that promotion I worked hard to get
One that came with a company car
When they gave me the keys they said son you can bet
Keep it up and you’ll really go far.

Chorus:
But what good is all that knowin’
The best thing that I had goin’
Is gone.

— Instrumental —

My good friends come around to hang out now and then
And they joke, man you’ve sure got it hard
With this house on the hill and a white picket fence
And the grass sure is green in the yard.

Chorus:
But what good is all that knowin’
The best thing that I had goin’
Is gone.

— Instrumental —

Well I squandered my time trying to buy her everything
Gave her all that I thought she deserved
Now I know all the things that she wanted were free
And I should have been home holdin’ her.

Chorus:
But what good is all that knowin’
The best thing that I had goin’
Is gone.
Is gone…

— Instrumental to fade —
