Lyrics

Verse- Ever since I was a small boy
They told me crime doesn’t pay
From the time I got my first toy
That’s what grown-ups used to say

Verse- Ev’ry time I saw a movie
From the wild west to brave new world
The one thing I could always count on
I knew the good guy got the girl…so

Chorus- After all that we been through
And I stood fast through thick and thin
Why am I here now, without you
I thought the good guy’s supposed to win (resolves)

Verse- Doesn’t seem to be that distant
When I sat there back in school
It only seems to me an instant
When someone preached the golden rule

Verse- Funny how it seemed so simple
I know the message never changed
But maybe I just wasn’t list’nin’
When all the rules were rearranged…so

Double Chorus- After all that we been through
And I stood fast through thick and thin
Why am I here now, without you
I thought the good guy’s supposed to win (no resolve)

After all that we been through
And I stood fast through thick and thin
Why am I here now, without you
I thought the good guy’s supposed to win (resolves)
