Talladega

Album: The Outsiders (2014)
Charted: 43
  • It was the summer before the real world started and,
    The deal was we would get to go, if we
    Cleaned it up, and got it running,
    Daddy's old Winnebago and
    Wing and a prayer down 65,
    Five best friends on four bald tires,
    I can still see Billy smiling, when we finally made it.

    To Talladega, boys raised up,
    Whiskey in your glass, here's to turning up,
    Slowing down and cars that go real fast,
    We were laughing and living, drinking and wishing,
    And thinking as that checkered flag was waving,
    Sure would like to stay in
    Talladega

    Like a storm, time rolls on,
    You can't hit pause as we just did.
    Most days in life don't stand out,
    But life's about those days that will, like,
    Rocking rando, getting rowdy,
    Shooting roman candles at the man in the moon,
    Til the Alabama sun was breaking

    Over Talladega, boys raised up,
    Whiskey in your glass, here's to turning up,
    Slowing down and cars that go real fast,
    We were laughing and living, drinking and wishing,
    And thinking as that checkered flag was waving,
    Sure would like to stay in
    Talladega
    Talladega

    When the winds go cold and it blows October,
    I think about us shoulder to shoulder,
    Like those cars my thoughts roll over and over and over,
    In my mind

    Tonight I'm in Talladega, boys raised up,
    Whiskey in your glass, here's to turning up,
    Slowing down and cars that go real fast,
    We were laughing and living, drinking and wishing,
    And thinking as that checkered flag was waving,
    Sure would like to stay in
    Talladega
