Back Roads

The back roads of this county cross like the laces on my boots
I’ve been running them down since I was able to
I left home at 19, swore I was never going back
Nights like this I wish that’s where I was at

Slow poking down a black top
Cutting ties on a white rock
There’s a party on a dead end road
We’re just hoping that the cops don’t show
Somebody is looking for a fight
It’s gonna be that kind of night
When I get too far from home
I go find me a back road

Well I remember the summer that I turned 16
I made out with a girl in the back of her hatchback Chevrolet
And I drank my first beer on the Louisiana state line
My first time to see the other side

Slow poking down a black top
Cutting ties on a white rock
There’s a party on a dead end road
We’re just hoping that the cops don’t show
Somebody is looking for a fight
It’s gonna be that kind of night
When I get too far from home
I go find me a back road

Well I heard them tell me “Son don’t forget where you came from”
And I never have and I still like to beat that drum
From the river bottoms to the tall pine trees
It forever will be right here inside of me

Slow poking down a black top
Cutting ties on a white rock
There’s a party on a dead end road
We’re just hoping that the cops don’t show
Somebody is looking for a fight
It’s gonna be that kind of night
When I get too far from home
I go find me a back road

When I get too far from home
I go find me a back road

Some habits just ain’t meant to be broken
