  • Every time you take a sip
    In this smoky atmosphere
    You press that bottle to your lips
    And I wish I was your beer
    In the small there of your back
    Your jeans are playing peekaboo
    I'd like to see the other half
    Of your butterfly tattoo

    Hey, that gives me an idea
    Let's get out of this bar
    Drive out into the country
    And find a place to park

    'Cause I'd like to see you out in the moonlight
    I'd like to kiss you way back in the sticks
    I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
    And I'd like to check you for ticks

    I know the perfect little path
    Out in these woods I used to hunt
    Don't worry babe, I've got your back
    And I've also got your front
    Now, I'd hate to waste a night like this
    I'll keep you safe you wait and see
    The only thing allowed to crawl all over you
    When we get there is me

    You know every guy in here tonight
    Would like to take you home
    But I've got way more class than them
    Babe, that ain't what I want

    'Cause I'd like to see you out in the moonlight
    I'd like to kiss you way back in the sticks
    I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
    And I'd like to check you for ticks

    You never know where one might be
    There's lots of places that are hard to reach
    I gotcha

    I'd like to see you out in the moonlight
    I'd like to kiss you, baby, way back in the sticks
    I'd like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
    And I'd like to check you for ticks
    Oh, I'd sure like to check you for ticks Writer/s: BRAD PAISLEY, KELLEY LOVELACE, TIM OWENS

  • Julie Geo from Garland, Txin Marine Combat Training we would sing this song in the shower since we had to check our combat buddy for ticks, as i said before, but now that i think about it...our platoon sergeant looked exactly like brad paisley. how ironic is that?
