  • We got a pontoon boat with a Yamaha
    People dressed like they're in Panama
    Small town spring break every weekend around this place

    And there's a bunch of boys trying to catch the eyes
    Of all the pretty girls that are walking by
    And those red neck margaritas are 2 for 1 at that old marina

    Tan lines and gas station cheap sunglasses
    They're coming here from all around

    To get a little southbound, un-wound
    Tennessee honey kind of buzz
    Them south sounds up loud
    Summer dripping off of us
    From the river bank to the Party Cove
    'Long as it floats we'll rock the boat
    And it's all looking up when we get down
    And get a little southbound, southbound
    Get a little southbound, southbound

    Bo got a ticket in a no-wake zone
    But Katie's the one that should take it slow
    'Cause she's dancing on the dock and it's only 2 o'clock

    Yeah the fish ain't biting 'cause the party's on
    The old men are thinking 'bout going home
    But those redneck margaritas are 2 for 1 at that old marina

    They're gonna get a little southbound, un-wound
    Tennessee honey kind of buzz
    Them south sounds up loud
    Summer dripping off of us
    From the river bank to the Party Cove
    'Long as it floats we'll rock the boat
    It's all looking up when we get down
    And get a little southbound, southbound
    Get a little southbound, southbound

    Got the rope swing swinging like a chandelier
    Little bit of heaven on the water right here
    Don't need much just a couple of beers and you and me
    Gotta love this time of year
    Gettin' southbound, southbound

    So let's get a little southbound, un-wound
    Tennessee honey kind of buzz
    Them south sounds up loud
    Summer dripping off of us
    From the river bank to the Party Cove
    'Long as it floats we'll rock the boat
    It's all looking up when we get down
    Yeah, and get a little southbound, southbound
    Get a little southbound, southbound

    Let's get a little southbound, southbound
    Get a little southbound, southbound Writer/s: Carrie Underwood, David Arthur Garcia, Hillary Lindsey, Joshua Miller
