Country music artist Blake Shelton has debuted another song from his forthcoming album, 'Texoma Shore.' Check out "I Lived It" here!

Country music star Blake Shelton is set to release his new album, Texoma Shore, this Friday, November 3rd. As another tease, the Oklahoma native gifted his fans by releasing a new track, “I Lived It,” to serve as another little taste.

Recently, Shelton caught up with The Boot to describe the song, “It’s hard to listen to this song without relating to it and having it take you back in time, and it’s hard not to fall in love with this song.” He’s not lying. This slow country song makes you wish you could turn back the clock. “When you listen to the record, it will go from something traditional to something that will make your head spin, back to something even more traditional,” Shelton continued. “That’s just what you can expect from one of my albums.”

“I Lived It” Lyrics

Daddy drove the wheels off a flatbed Ford
Files found the hole in the old screen door
Granny said the dress that my sister wore
To church wasn’t long enough

Momma poured grease in a Crisco can
Put a hundred thousand miles on a Sears box fan
Uncle Joe put tobacco on my hand where
The yellow jackets torn me up
And I ain’t making this up

Oh, you think I’m talking crazy
In a different language you might not understand
Oh, that’s alright
That’s just the kind of life that made me who I am
Just taking my mind on a visit
Back in time ’cause I miss it
You wouldn’t know how to love it like I love it
Unless you lived it
And man, I lived it

Granddaddy smoked Salems with the windows up
Drove me around in the back of that truck
We drank from the hose and spit in the cup
We all survived somehow

Them old Duke boys, they’re flattening their heels
Hollywood was fake, wrestling was real
Wouldn’t dream of spending that two dollar bill
From pushing a lawnmower ’round
I go back there right now

Oh, you think I’m talking crazy
In a different language you might not understand
Oh, that’s alright
That’s just the kind of life that made me who I am
Just taking my mind on a visit
Back in time ’cause I miss it
You wouldn’t know how to love it like I love it
Unless you lived it
And man, I lived it
Oh man, I lived it

Oh, you think I’m talking crazy
In a different langauge you might not understand
Oh, that’s alright
That’s just the kind of life that made me who I am
Just taking my mind on a visit
Back in time ’cause I miss it
You wouldn’t know how to love it like I love it
Unless you lived it
And man, I lived it
Oh man, I lived it
