Intro:  
Twenty dollars out of momma's purse bought us a tank of gas 
And a pack of tobacco when, we was just teenage kids. 
Me and Jack and Danny we'd go driving round 
If there was trouble to be found, heh, then we found it quick. 
Chuckin' donuts in the fields ?till old man Smith would call the cops 
And he'd come running out with a shotgun ?cause we was  
Running down his crops. 
And I reckon he's still wonderin who that was, 
N/C                      
That was us. 
Some of these local boys moved on but we never changed a bit 
Never had a scrap of sense, at least that's what some folks said. 
Yeah we finally turned old enough to buy our own beer 
Don't remember about that year, just lucky that we're not dead. 
?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. 
People wonder why it leans the way it does. 
N/C               
That was us. 
Seems like small towns never change but things get tough when times get hard 
And they say when he got sick, old man Smith would have lost that farm 
?Cause he was getting way behind on all his bills 
But someone came and brought his crops in from the fields 
Yeah folks ?round here still don't know who that was 
N/C             
That was us. 
 Cuttin' donuts in the fields ?till old man Smith would call the cops 
And he'd come running out with a shotgun ?cause we was  
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 
Yeah that was us.
