Charted: 19
  • To this day when I hear that song
    I see you standin' there all night long
    Discount shades, store bought tan
    Flip flops and cut-off jeans

    Somewhere between that setting sun
    I'm on fire and born to run
    You looked at me and I was done
    And we're, we're just getting started

    I was singin' to you, you were singin' to me
    I was so alive, never been more free
    Fired up my daddy's lighter and we sang, oh

    Stayed there 'til they forced us out
    And took the long way to your house
    I can still hear the sound of you sayin' don't go

    When I think about you, I think about seventeen
    I think about my old jeep
    I think about the stars in the sky
    Funny how a melody sounds like a memory
    Like the soundtrack to a July Saturday night, Springsteen

    I bumped into you by happenstance
    You probably wouldn't even know who I am
    But if I whispered your name
    I bet there'd still be a spark

    Back when I was gasoline
    And this old tattoo had brand new ink
    And we didn't care what your mom would think
    About your name on my arm

    Baby is it spring or is it summer
    The guitar sound or the beat of that drummer
    You hear sometimes late at night
    On your radio

    Even though you're a million miles away
    When you hear 'Born in the USA'
    You relive those glory days
    So long ago

    When you think about me, do you think about seventeen
    Do you think about my old jeep
    Think about the stars in the sky
    Funny how a melody sounds like a memory
    Like a soundtrack to a July Saturday night
    Springsteen, Springsteen

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh

    Funny how a melody sounds like a memory
    Like a soundtrack to a July Saturday night
    Springsteen
    Springsteen
    Whoa Springsteen

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh

    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh
    Whoa-oh-oh-oh Writer/s: Eric Church, Jeffery Hyde, Ryan Tyndell
