  • This is for everybody out there, circling the town square,
    Proud to be stuck out in the middle of nowhere
    USA, Chevrolet, Dodge and Ford, raising a little hell and praising the Lord

    Just simple truth speaking, working for the weekend
    Every time it hits the fan you just keep on keeping
    You try the truth, red white and blue
    Turn it up, turn it up, man, this one's for you

    Hey, this is for the driving around, Jack and Diane town, anywhere Saturday night
    Yeah, yeah, this is for the back road, turning up the radio, heading right
    Where the two lane turns into Main Street, cruising the same streets,
    Over in the passenger seat
    Baby ain't never looked better just singing along,
    To this driving around song

    Yeah, I know what I'm talking about, I grew up in them rural routes
    Count down them days, 'til I got brave enough to bust out
    City lights in my size, I'm gonna do it upright,
    I'm sitting here with this guitar tonight
    Kickin' it in the big town, wishing I'd have slowed it down
    And I give anything if I was driving around with them big dreams in my pocket
    Yeah, this is for the ones who don't know how good they got it

    Hey, this is for the driving around, Jack and Diane town, anywhere Saturday night
    Yeah, yeah, this is for the back road, turning up the radio, heading right
    Where the two lane turns into Main Street, cruising the same streets,
    Over in the passenger seat
    Baby ain't never looked better just singing along,
    To this driving around song

    Alright, everybody,
    Get in your truck, get in your car, whatever it is
    Small town America, baby,
    We're going drivin' around, c'mon

    Hey, this is for the driving around, Jack and Diane town, anywhere Saturday night
    Yeah, yeah, this is for the back road, turning up the radio, heading right
    Where the two lane turns into Main Street, cruising the same streets,
    Over in the passenger seat
    Baby ain't never looked better just singing along,
    To this driving around song
    To this driving around song
    To this driving around song Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
