listen video  "Believe" by Brooks & Dunn (Ronnie Dunn/Craig Wiseman)

1st Verse

Ol' man Wrigley lived in that white house
Down the street where I grew up
Mama used to send me over with things
We struck a friendship up
We spent a few long summers
Out on his ol' porch swing

2nd Verse

Said he was in the war, went in the Navy
Lost his wife, lost his baby
Broke down and asked him one time
How you keep from goin' crazy
He said, 'I'll see my wife and son in just a little while'
I asked him what he meant
He looked at me and smiled, said


(Lord) I raise my hands
Bow my head
(Whoa) I'm findin' more and more truth
In the words written and read
(And) (They) tell me that there's more to (life) (this)
Than just what I can see (just what I can see)
(Oh, I believe, mmm)
(I believe)

3rd Verse

A few years later I was off at college
Talkin' to Mom on the phone one night
Gettin' all caught up on the gossip
The ins and outs of the small town life
She said, 'Oh by the way, son
Ol' man Wrigley has died'

4th Verse

Later on that night
I laid there thinkin' back
Thought about a couple long, lost summers
I didn't know whether to cry or laugh
If there was ever anybody
Deserved a ticket to the other side
It'd be that sweet ol' man
Looked me in the eye, said

(Repeat Chorus)


I can't quote the Book
The chapter or the verse
You can't tell me
It all ends
In a slow ride in a hearse
You know I'm more and more convinced
The longer that I live
Yeah, this can't be
No this can't be
No this can't be all there is

(Chorus Out)
