Arkansas

Album: Starting Over (2020)
  • Took a Nine Eleven 'bout a hundred and seven down a back road
    Where the white river runs and the southern sun makes the kudzu grow
    And what I found in the Ozark mountains I ain't ever seen
    It sure does feel like you're sittin' on top of the world to me

    Gotta get down, gotta get down to Arkansas
    Havin' so much fun that it's probably a little bit against the law
    All the boys and the girls down there sure do know how to have a ball
    If you wanna get down, gotta get down to Arkansas

    Well, we burned through the one light towns like a scalded dog
    When we lit out of Fayetteville, they were callin' the hogs
    We made a pit stop in Little Rock for some barbecue
    And when we hit West Memphis there were blue lights in our rear view

    Gotta get down, gotta get down to Arkansas
    Havin' so much fun that it's probably a little bit against the law
    All the boys and the girls down there sure do know how to have a ball
    If you wanna get down, gotta get down to Arkansas

    Gotta get down, gotta get down to Arkansas
    Havin' so much fun that it's probably a little bit against the law
    All the boys and the girls down there sure do know how to have a ball
    If you wanna get down, gotta get down to Arkansas

    Gotta get down, gotta get down to Arkansas
    Havin' so much fun that it's probably a little bit against the law
    All the boys and the girls down there sure know how to have a ball
    If you wanna get down, gotta get down to Arkansas Writer/s: Christopher Alvin Stapleton, Mike Campbell
