Adam Brand — That Was Us lyrics

Twenty dollars out of mumma's purse bought us a tank of gas
And a pack of tobacco when we were just teenage kids
Me and Jack and Danny we'd go driving around
If there was trouble to be found then we found it quick

Chuckin' doughnuts in the field
'Till old man Smith would call the cops
He'd come running out with a shotgun
'Cause we were running down his crops
And I reckon he's still wondering who that was
But that was us

Now some of those local boys moved on but we never changed a bit
Never had a scrap of sense, least that's what some folks said
Then we finally turned old enough to buy our own beer
Don't remember much about that year, just lucky that we're not dead
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/adam-brand-that-was-us-lyrics.html ]
'Cause somebody said they saw some boys
With a ute looked just like mine
Trying to pull down that old water tank
That sits out by the railway line
And people wonder why it leans the way it does
Well that was us

Seems like small towns never change
But things get tough when times get hard
And they said when he got sick
That old man Smith would have lost that farm
'Cause he was getting way behind on all his bills
'Till someone came and brought his crops in from the fields
Yeah and folks 'round here still don't know who that was
That was us

Chuckin' doughnuts in the fields
'Till old man Smith would call the cops
He'd come running out with a shotgun
'Cause we were running down his crops
Somebody said they saw some boys
With a ute looked just like mine
Trying to pull down that old water tank
That sits out by the railway line
That was us
That was us
