I couldn't wait to turn sixteen
And drive all the boys around
Foot on the gas and hands on the wheel
Was all I could think about

A little rust in the bed of that truck
And a four speed on the floor
Five hundred dollars
It was mine all mine
And I never wanted nothing more

I took Katie down by the river
With a six dollar bottle of wine
Just a fool tryin' to play it cool
Hopin' she'd let me cross the line

And I was prayin' that she couldn't tell
I'd never been that far before
The first time's a one time feeling
And I never wanted nothin' more
No I never wanted nothin' more

[Chorus]
Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
And I'm sure happy with what I've got
I live to love and laugh a lot
And that's all I need

My buddies all tried to change my mind
But I told them that I thought it through
Well Katie laughed and my momma cried
When they heard me say I do

Her little ring was a little thing
But it was all that I could afford
Now shes mine all mine
Till the day I die
And I never wanted nothing more
No I never wanted nothing more

Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
And I'm sure happy with what I've got
I live to love and laugh a lot
And that's all I need

One Sunday I listened to the preacher
And I knew he was preaching to me
I couldn't help it I walked up front
And I got down on my knee

Right then and there I swear
I changed when I found the Lord
Glory Hallelujah good God Almighty
I never wanted nothing more
No I never wanted nothing more

Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
And I'm sure happy with what I've got
I live to love and laugh a lot
And that's all I need

I never wanted nothing more
And I never wanted nothing more

    General Comment:Wow, hawaiiancowgirl, I never thought of that, but that's a good question. I just assumed he married Katey, but you've got a good point! But, I think he married her. Maybe because that's the way I want the song to go.

    General Comment:This song is about Kennys gay teenager years. He wants to "drive all the boys around". The lyrics are also wrong. Its "Took KENNY down to the lake". Kenny Chesney is a homo.
