  • I, I been gone I been gone too long
    Singing my songs on the road
    Another town, one more show and I'm coming home
    Don't give a damn what these keys I hold
    I'm gonna knock down that front door, and

    I'ma find out what that house is made of
    Been too many nights since its felt us make love
    I wanna rock some Sheetrock
    Knock some pictures off the wall
    Love you baby, like a wrecking ball

    You, look at you, send me one more shot
    Sitting on a bathroom sink
    Damn you really turn me on, painting your toenails pink
    Easy baby for you to say
    But if I can make it just one more day, and

    That old house is gonna be shaking
    I hope those bricks and boards can take it
    But I won't be surprised
    If the whole damn place just falls
    I'm gonna rock you baby, like a wrecking ball

    And that old house is gonna be shaking
    Rafter rocking, foundation quaking
    Crash right through the front door
    Back you up against the wall
    Love you baby, take it right there, baby
    Rock you baby, like a wrecking ball Writer/s: Casey Beathard, Eric Church
