Did It For The Girl

  • I got the Chevy all shined up
    Paid a little more for a hair cut
    Ironed up a pearl snap
    Left that old ball cap
    Gave myself a little extra smell good splash

    I did it for the girl
    Dancin' in the sunset
    Get to see her sippin' on Corona, little silhouette
    Did it for the moonlight, slow ride, slidin' over by my side
    Been waiting on that all night kiss
    I did it for the girl

    I dialed her up some more George Strait
    Me and old George sang Marina Del Rey
    There by the water's edge
    Big sky turnin' red
    That perfect night she said she can't forget

    I did it for the girl
    Dancin' in the sunset
    Get to see her sippin' on Corona, little silhouette
    Did it for the moonlight, slow ride, slidin' over by my side
    Been waiting on that all night kiss
    I did it for the girl

    I did it for that long hair, fallin' down, layin' on her shoulders
    Those blue eyes want me to hold her

    I did it for the girl
    Dancin' in the sunset
    Get to see her sippin' on Corona, little silhouette
    Did it for the moonlight, slow ride, slidin' over by my side
    Been waiting on that all night kiss
    I did it for the girl

    Dancin' on the front porch
    Reachin' out to grab my shirt, pull me through the front door
    Did it for the midnight, candlelight, anything to make her mine
    All mine
    I did it for the girl
    I did it for the girl Writer/s: GREGORY CURTIS BATES, LYNN HUTTON, RODNEY DALE CLAWSON
