  • Duffle bag, backseat
    My dash, your feet
    Those other side of the highway headlights making you shine
    My hand, your leg
    Playlist playing
    Even though I haven't made it yet
    I'm dragging it, dropping it in my mind

    You're a drive real slow, down a no lane road
    To a house on a hill where the wild things grow
    You're wake up in pajamas, not a trace of makeup on ya
    You're a help her fix it, having breakfast with my momma
    You're a take back home, home, home girl
    Home, home, home girl
    Take back home, home, home girl
    Home, home, home girl

    (Oh)
    You're the kind I wanna take a ride with
    Sit by on a Friday night
    In the stadium lights, side by side
    All the ladies like, "Yeah, she's doing just fine"
    Everybody in the bleachers, they all gon' want to meet ya
    From my teachers to my preacher, my little crowd pleaser
    Parading with you feeling homecoming cool, yeah

    I wanna drive real slow, down a no lane road
    To a house on a hill where the wild things grow
    You're wake up in pajamas, not a trace of makeup on ya
    You're a help her fix it, having breakfast with my momma
    You're a take back home, home, home girl
    Home, home, home girl
    Take back home, home, home girl
    Home, home, home girl, oh

    (Woah, woah)
    You're a take back, you're a take back (woah, woah)
    You're a take back home girl (you're a take back home)
    (Woah, woah)
    You're a take back home girl
    (Woah, woah) oh

    You got that down-home, homegrown, found on good ground soul
    That down-home, homegrown, found on good ground soul

    You're a drive real slow, down a no lane road
    To a house on a hill where the wild things grow
    You're wake up in pajamas, not a trace of makeup on ya
    You're a help her fix it, having breakfast with my momma
    You're a take back home, home, home girl
    Home, home, home girl (you're a take back home)
    Take back home, home, home girl
    Home, home, home girl, oh, oh

    You're a take back, you're a take back (woah, woah)
    You're a take back home girl (you're a take back home, yeah)
    You're a take back home, yeah (you're a take back home) Writer/s: David Garcia, Hillary Lindsey, Joshua Miller
