Rory's Radio

Album: Where Country Grows (2011)
  • I remember wantin' to buy a bottle of wine,
    But I wasn't old enough at the time
    My big brothers, they were though
    We'd load up and down the road we'd go
    We were listenin' to Rory's radio

    Y'all, Rory's radio played Hank's "Major Moves"
    Fishin' in the dark, doin' anything we wanted to do
    I was fifteen but I thought that I was twenty five
    I was dreamin' so many dreams, havin' the time of my life
    I could go anywhere I wanted to go
    I was listenin' to Rory's radio

    We'd sit underneath Tombigbee Bridge,
    Eatin' on our bag of craw-fish
    We would drag race down straight a-ways on West Bend Road
    We'd laugh and joke livin' our lives slow
    Listenin' to Rory's radio

    Y'all, Rory's radio played Hank's "Major Moves"
    Fishin' in the dark, doin' anything we wanted to do
    I was fifteen but I thought that I was twenty five
    I was dreamin' so many dreams, havin' the time of our life
    I could go anywhere I wanted to go
    I was listenin' to Rory's radio

    We're all married now and we have kids
    But don't think that we don't look back and remember when

    Rory's radio played songs like "Major Moves"
    Fishin' in the dark, doin' anything I wanted to do
    Well, I was fifteen but I thought I was twenty five
    I was dreamin' so many dreams, havin' the time of my life
    And I could go anywhere I wanted to go
    So innocent from this big ol' world that I now know
    I was listenin' to Rory's radio
    I was listenin' to Rory's radio
    I miss listenin' to Rory's radio Writer/s: ASHTON SHEPHERD
