Thursday morning usually means another cultural lesson with Jim & Lisa so we can what can stay atop the genre we love so dearly. Yes, it was another edition of 'Cultured Country.' This week Sir John, our resident BritNeck, put his stylized vocal spin on a favorite of mine titled "As Good as I Once Was" by Toby Keith.

So, if you missed it, or just want to hear it again, then you know what to do.

Just so you can follow along, below is the lyric as performed by Toby;
I used to be hell on wheels,
Back when I was a younger man
Now my body says "Oh, You can't do this boy",
But my pride says "Oh yes you can"
I ain't as good as I once was,
That's just the cold, hard truth, (huh)
I still throw a few back,
Talk a little smack,
When I'm feeling bullet proof,
So don't double, dog dare me now,
Cause I'd have to call your bluff,
I ain't as good as I once once was,
But I'm as good once, as I ever was.
May not be good as I once was,
But I'm as good once, as I ever was

"Cultured Country," listen for it Thursday mornings at 7:45 with Jim & Lisa, "The Wakeup Crew," on Kicker 102.5.

Here's the way Toby does it...


How It Works:

The premise is simple, country music lovers like us are generally thought of as un-cultured, so to fight this ridiculous notion and bring what we consider a little more refinement to our show, we thought having someone from jolly old England read some country music lyrics, out loud, on the radio might raise the culture bar a notch or two. Since we don't have any access to the Royals and the only Brit we know in the immediate area just happens to be Lisa's husband John, that's the way we went.
