  • Well I said hey girl what's your name?
    Haven't I seen you before?
    I recognized them dark green eyes when you came through the door
    Are you alone or are you with someone?
    She said a matter of fact I'm not
    So I took her hand that's when it all began and we headed towards the parking lot

    And she said hey boy, do you mind takin' me home tonight?
    'Cause I ain't never seen a country boy with tires on his truck this high
    I said climb on up but honey watch the cup
    That I'm spitting my dip inside and hold on tight
    'Cause it's gonna be wilder than any eight second ride

    We went riding round rocking to the sound of "Country Boy Can Survive"
    And I knew then that she was my kind of girl 'cause she was singing every single line
    Then she slid on over put my hand on her shoulder
    And I asked her what she wanted to do
    She said it really don't matter where we go just as long as I'm riding with you

    She said hey boy, do you mind takin' me home tonight?
    'Cause I ain't never seen a country boy with tires on his truck this high
    I said climb on up but honey watch the cup
    That I'm spitting my dip inside and hold on tight
    'Cause it's gonna be wilder than any eight second ride

    So we headed out to Old Tobacco Road
    Put the tailgate down and we made love
    She said true country boys hard to find
    But I found one wilder than any eight second ride

    She said hey boy, do you mind taking me home tonight?
    'Cause I ain't never seen a country boy with tires on his truck this high
    I said climb on up but honey watch the cup that I'm spitting my dip inside
    And hold on tight 'cause it's gonna be wilder than any eight second ride
    Yeah hold on tight 'cause it's gonna be wilder than any eight second ride Writer/s: ERIC DURRANCE, JOSH OWEN
