Small Town Big Time

Album: Based on a True Story... (2013)
  • Yea, Hollywood Boulevard
    Looking down, seeing stars
    90210, Rodeo is Rodeo
    Glad I hit it, glad I did it and I'd do it again
    Yea, and hang with my friends

    With them red Maserati's and them tuned up bodies
    And everybody gonna be the next somebody
    Yea, this place is a trip
    Hey but meanwhile back in the stick

    Somebody's having a small town big time night
    Somebody's rocking the main street with red tail lights
    Somebody's cranking it up or falling in love
    Or keeping the buzz sipping on a little moonlight

    Yea, they know how to rock
    Out in the boondocks
    'Cause believe me I've been there
    Somebody's having a small town big time night, somewhere

    Yea, two lane town squares
    Cotton queens, county fairs
    With a water tank
    Got 100 girls' names under the paint

    Glad I hit it, glad I did it and I'd do it again
    Yea, I miss my friends

    With them pick 'em up trucks and them dirt road ruts
    And all them country girls get to strutting their stuff
    East, west, north or south
    Yea you better believe that right about now

    Somebody's having a small town big time night
    Somebody's rocking the main street with red tail lights
    Somebody's cranking it up or falling in love
    Or lighting it up with a KC spotlight

    Yea, they all got the swerve
    Down back in their hometown
    I wish that I was there
    Somebody's having a small town big time night, somewhere

    Somebody's having a small town big time night
    Somebody's rocking the main street with red tail lights
    Somebody's cranking it up or falling in love
    And twisting it up and dodging them blue lights

    Yea, they know how to kick it
    Way out past the limits
    Cause baby I've been there
    Somebody's having a small town big time night, somewhere

    Yea, somebody's having a small town big time night, somewhere
    I wish that I was there
    Yea, I wish that I was there Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
