Bad Grammar in Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Tim McGraw's, "Angry All The Time"
The Lyrics:
Twenty years have came and went
Since I walked out of your door
Why:
Twenty years have COME and GONE! I know this is country music, but usually there isn't an error as bad as this. Also, the "of" in the phrase "out of your door" should be removed. This literally means that Tim was trapped inside Faith's door for twenty years, but managed to find a way out of it. Another lyric that is Bad Grammar and Literally Impossible at the same time.
