  • (Heads Carolina, tails California)

    I was out with the boys, catchin' up in a neon light
    Didn't know 'til we walked in it was karaoke night
    She was in a circle of girls, chasin' a shot with a lime
    She was laughin', they were darin' her to get on the mic
    One of 'em walked up and turned in her name
    Next thing I knew, man, she was up on the stage, singin'

    "Heads Carolina, tails California"
    Maybe she'd fall for a boy from South Georgia
    She's got the bar in the palm of her hand
    And she's a '90s country fan like I am
    Hey, I got a Chevy, she can flip a quarter
    I'd drive her anywhere from here to California
    When this song is over, I gotta find her
    'Cause she had me at "Heads Carolina"

    (Heads Carolina, tails California)
    Yeah, she knew every word by heart, didn't need no screen, no
    I was raisin' my glass up for her, I saw her smilin' at me, yeah
    She had me down in the front by the end of verse two
    Like there wasn't no one else in the room, we were singin'

    "Heads Carolina, tails California"
    Maybe she'd fall for a boy from South Georgia
    She's got the bar in the palm of her hand
    And she's a '90s country fan like I am
    Hey, I got a Chevy, she can flip a quarter
    I'd drive her anywhere from here to California
    When this song is over, I gotta find her
    'Cause she had me at "Heads Carolina"

    Yeah, I bought her a round and we talked 'til the lights came on (lights came on)
    I still see that girl every time I hear that song

    "Heads Carolina, tails California"
    Maybe she'd fall for a boy from South Georgia
    She's got the bar in the palm of her hand
    And she's a '90s country fan like I am
    Hey, I got a Chevy, she can flip a quarter
    I'd drive her anywhere from here to California
    When this song is over, I gotta find her
    'Cause she had me at "Heads Carolina"

    (Heads Carolina, tails California)
    Yeah, she had me at "Heads Carolina" (somewhere greener, somewhere warmer)
    (Heads Carolina, tails California)
    Yeah (somewhere greener, somewhere warmer)
    (Heads Carolina)
    (Somewhere together, I've got a quarter)
