Eric Church gives fans a little throwback treat.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the release of his first major label album, Sinners Like Me, Eric Church has opted to share the never released music video for the title track “Sinners Like Me.”

Oh man, it’s fun go back to a 29-year-old Eric Church— so much hair and no signature sunglasses. Though his styling has altered a bit, his amazing passion and showmanship hasn’t changed a bit.

“Sinners Like Me” Lyrics

I was fifteen when my daddy’s old man
Caught me half way through my first beer
He laughed so hard when my face turned green
He said “You come from a long line of sinners like me”

Now me and my brother go to see him some times
But he don’t have much to say anymore
So we sit on his headstone with a fifth of Jack D.
Here’s to a long line of sinners like me
La de dah de dah
La de dah dah de de
I come from a long line of sinners like me

My mama had a soft spot for a hell raisin’ boy
So she had two more just like him
It takes an angel to raise a family
That comes from a long line of sinners like me

Well now maybe who knows one day I’ll settle down
Give my dad a grandson of his own
And when the doctor smacks him, he’ll probably take a swing
‘Cause he’ll come from a long line of sinners like me
La de dah de dah
La de dah dah de de
I come from a long line of sinners like me

On the day I die
I know where I’m gonna go
Me and Jesus got that part worked out
I’ll wait at the gates til his face I see
And stand in a long line of sinners like me
I’ll stand in a long line of sinners like me

La de dah de dah
La de dah dah de de
I come from a long line of sinners like me
La de dah de dah
La de dah dah de de
Here’s to a long line of sinners like me
I come from a long line of sinners like me

After dropping Sinners Like Me, his follow-up album Carolina was also well-received— but his third album Chief  truly made him a country music star. The North Carolina native is currently touring in support of his fifth studio album, Mr. Misunderstood.
