Song lyrics
[T.I.:]
Hey
Let me kick it to you right quick, partner
Not as a gangsta, but as a grown man
What matters more than the mistakes you've made
Is what you able to learn from it.
Big Phil
This for you pimpin'.

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake (Timbaland)]
Ohhhh (hey)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin' to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead & gone, dead & gone
And ohhhh (hey)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin' to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead & gone, dead & gone, dead...

[Verse 1: T.I.]
Ever had one of them days you wish you would've stayed home?
Run into a group of suckers who gettin' they hate on
You walk by
They get wrong
You reply then things get blown
Way outta proportion
Way past discussion
Just you against them, pick one then rush 'em
Figure you'll get dropped, hell that's nothin'
So They don't wanna stop there now they bustin'
Now you gushin' ambulance rushin'
You to the hospital with a bad concussion
Plus you hit 4 times
Bullet hit your spine
Paralyzed waist down now your wheel chair bound
Nevermind that now you lucky to be alive
Just think it all started you fussin' with 3 guys
Now your pride in the way, but your pride is the way
You could mess around, get shot, die anyday
People die everyday
All over nonsense, dope money, dice game, stash box contents.
Could this be 'cos of hip hop music?
Or did the one's with the good sense not use it?
Usually people don't know what to do
When they back against the wall so they just start shootin'
For red or for blue or for blow I guess
From Bankhead or from your projects
No more stress, now I'm straight, now I get it, now I take
Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family's sake
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today
No regrets I'm blessed to say
The old me dead & gone away.

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake (Timbaland)]
Ohhhh (hey)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin' to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead & gone, dead & gone
And ohhhh (hey)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin' to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead & gone, dead & gone, dead...

[Verse 2: T.I.]
I ain't never been scared, I lived through tragedy
Situation could've been dead lookin' back at it
Most of that stuff didn't even have to happen
But you don't think about it when you out there trappin'
In apartments hangin' smokin' and rappin'
Suckers start somethin' next thing you know we cappin'
Get locked up then didn't even get mad
Now think about: "Damn, what a life I had!"
Most of that stuff, look back, just laugh
Some stuff still look back get sad
Maybe my homeboy still be around
Had I not hit the sucker in the mouth that time
I won that fight
I lost that war
I can still see my homey walkin' out that door.
Who would've thought I'd never see Philant no more?
Got enough dead homies I don't want no more
Cost a sucker his job
Cost me more
I should've walked off and take that loss for sure
Now think before I risk my life
Take them chances to get my stripe
Somebody put they hands on me alright
Otherwise stand there talk trash all night
'Cos I hit you and you sue me
I shoot you, get locked up, who me
No more stress, now I'm straight, now I get it, now I take
Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family's sake
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today
No regrets I'm blessed to say
The old me dead & gone away.

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake (Timbaland)]
Ohhhh (hey)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin' to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead & gone, dead & gone
And ohhhh (hey)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin' to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead & gone, dead & gone, dead...

[Justin Timberlake:]
I turn my head to the East
I don't see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the West
Still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the North
Swallow that pill that they call pride
That old me is dead & gone
But that new me will be alright. [x2]
Cause...

[Chorus: Justin Timberlake (Timbaland)]
Ohhhh (hey)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin' to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead & gone, dead & gone
And ohhhh (hey)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryin' to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead & gone, dead & gone, dead...

Holy... Crap. It's awesome... and my mom would kill me if she figured out i'm listening to this type of music. Still, It's awesome. Only problem is that T.I. Swears a bit... too much, mabey? Mabey three less Swears, and this would be my favorite song ever.

Good beat, catchy song.
I don't know T.I much, but I like Justin Timberlake. I'm really impressed with him since 'futuresex/lovesound'.

I love this song so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe what T.I. did.
But a lot of artists have been to jail. T.I.'s not the first one.

First off i would like to say that i am a huge fan of T.I. and Justin Timberlake, and i want to say that this song is my up most favorite song i have ever heard. I watched the video and it is one i could watch every day i enjoyed it that much. I am a huge fan of music and i cant tell you enough how much i like the song "dead and gone."This is probley one of the best songs i have ever heard. I know you probley hear that all the time from so many fans but this song is one of the greatest songs and it touches my life so much. I have been through a tragedic time in my life to and struggled for a long time and this song explains my feelings, and who i have become today. This song is my call tone on my cell and my ring tone. That is how much i love this song. If anybody out there wanted to learn about me and my life this song says it all.
