  • Six o'clock on Friday evening
    Momma doesn' t know she's leaving
    'Til she hears the screen door slamming
    Rubber squealin' gears a jamming

    Local country station just a blaring on the radio
    Pick him up at seven and they're headin' to the rodeo
    Momma's on the front porch screamin' out her warning
    Girl you better get your red head

    Back in bed before the morning
    Nine o'clock the show is ending
    But the fun is just beginning
    She knows he's anticipating

    But she's gonna keep him waiting
    Grab a bite to eat
    And then they're heading to the honkey tonk
    But loud crowds and line dancing

    Just ain't what they really want
    Drive out to the boondocks and park down by the creek
    And where it's George Strait 'til real late
    And dancing cheek to cheek

    Ain't going down 'til the sun comes up
    Ain't givin' in 'til they get enough
    Going 'round the world in a pickup truck
    Ain't goin' down 'til the sun comes up

    Ten 'til twelve is wine and dancing
    Midnight starts the hard romancing
    One o'clock that truck is rocking
    Two is coming, still no stopping

    Break to check the clock at three
    They're right on where they want to be
    Four o'clock get up and going
    Five o'clock that rooster's crowing

    Ain't going down 'til the sun comes up
    Ain't givin' in 'til they get enough
    Going 'round the world in a pickup truck
    Ain't goin' down 'til the sun comes up

    Six o'clock on Saturday
    Her folks don't know he's on his way
    The stalls are clean, the horses fed
    They say she's grounded 'til she's dead

    Well here he comes around the bend
    Slowing down, she's jumping in
    Hey mom, you're daughter's gone
    And there they go again

    Ain't going down 'til the sun comes up
    Ain't givin' in 'til they get enough
    Going 'round the world in a pickup truck
    Ain't goin' down 'til the sun comes up Writer/s: GARTH BROOKS, KENT BLAZY, KIM WILLIAMS
