Dirt Road Anthem

Album: My Kinda Party (2010)
Charted: 7
  • Yeah I'm chilling on a dirt road
    Laid back swervin' like I'm George Jones
    Smoke rollin' out the window
    An ice cold beer sittin' in the console
    Memory lane up in the headlights
    Has got me reminiscing on the good times
    I'm turning off the real life, driving, that's right
    I'm hittin' easy street in mud tires

    Back in the day pop's farm was the place to go
    Load the truck up hit the dirt road
    Jump the barbwire spread the word
    Light the bonfire then call the girls
    The king in the can and the Marlboro man
    Jack and Jim were a few good men
    When we learned how to kiss and cuss and fight too
    Better watch out for the boys in blue
    And all this small town he said she said
    Ain't it funny how rumors spread
    Like I know something ya'll don't know
    Man that talk is getting old
    Man mind your business watch your mouth
    Before I have to knock your loud mouth out
    I'm tired of talking man ya'll ain't listenin'
    Them old dirt roads is what ya'll missin'

    Yeah I'm chilling on a dirt road
    Laid back swervin' like I'm George Jones
    Smoke rollin' out the window
    An ice cold beer sittin' in the console
    Memory lane up in the headlights
    Has got me reminiscing on the good times
    I'm turning off the real life, driving, that's right
    I'm hittin' easy street in mud tires

    I sit back and think about them good ol' days
    The way we were raised and our southern ways
    And we like cornbread and biscuits
    If it's broke round here we fix it
    I can take ya'll where you need to go
    Down to my hood and back in them woods
    We do it different 'round here that's right
    And we sure do it good and we do it all night
    So if you really wanna know how it feels
    To get off the road with a truck and four wheel
    Jump on in tell yo' friends
    And we'll be raising hell where the black top ends

    I'm chilling on a dirt road
    Laid back swervin' like I'm George Jones
    Smoke rollin' out the window,
    An ice cold beer sittin' in the console
    Memory lane up in the headlights
    Has got me reminiscing on the good times
    I'm turning off the real life, driving, that's right
    I'm hittin' easy street in mud tires that's right

    Yeah I'm chillin' on a dirt road
    Laid back swervin' like I'm George Jones
    Smoke rollin' out the window
    An ice cold beer sittin' in the console
    Memory lane up in the headlights
    Has got me reminiscing on the good times
    I'm turning off the real life, driving, that's right
    I'm hittin' easy street in mud tires that's right Writer/s: Brantley Keith Gilbert, Colt Ford
