Lyrics

Just about sundown on the levee road near the old fishin’ hole
Teaching me to shoot straight and true was your only goal
You threw a can up in the air and smiled
I pulled the trigger, missed by a mile, you said

Aim a little higher and you can’t miss
Bless that can with a shotgun kiss
Aim a little higher, try it again
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher

In later years on a river of tears I drifted home for awhile
Since shame was the only glory I’d ever known I didn’t change my style
First night home I got drunk and confused
Mistook you for a fool, you were not amused, you said

Aim a little higher, ‘cause you’re not livin’
All this takin’ son and never givin’s
Gonna catch up to you like a ball of fire
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little higher, you’re shootin’ too low
Aim for the dirt and you’ll never know
Glorious redemption or heavenly hope
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher

In those deceptive moments, in those deceptive days
When the dung and the mire looked like the high wire
Will there be anyone who loves me enough to say
“You gotta aim a little higher, aim a little higher, aim a little higher”
“You gotta aim a little higher, aim a little higher, aim a little higher”

Aim a little higher, ‘cause you’re not livin’
All this takin’ son and never givin’s
Gonna catch up to you like a ball of fire
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little higher, you’re shootin’ too low
Aim for the dirt and you’ll never know
Glorious redemption or heavenly hope
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little higher
Aim a little, aim a little, aim a little highe
