  • I was a Renegade ragtop, revvin' up an engine
    Hell yeah, why not take it to the limit
    I would smoke it if you had it at a high school party
    Passin' 'round a bottle 'round a bonfire in the woods
    Look at me wrong, you damn right, I'd fight ya
    Parents got divorced, kinda dog that would bite ya
    And I'd love 'em and I'd leave 'em and it was what it was
    And it is what it is and I wouldn't change it if I could

    Yeah, I lost my way
    Damn near lost my mind
    Pedal to the metal, let the devil lead me blind
    I was way outside the lines
    Yeah, and I got way off track
    Took some wrong turns lookin' back
    It's been one helluva ride in my rear view
    But I thank the good Lord for the detours to you

    She was an everything but the wings angel outta nowhere
    'Cross the room, crooked smile and I just had to go there
    Sittin' with a group of friends and sippin' on a glass of red
    And I don't remember what I said but she wrote her number down
    All I ever wanted but never knew I needed
    She's the dotted lines and every sign that led me straight to Jesus
    Was a voice that made me hit the brakes, slow it down, have some faith
    And I had to learn from my mistakes but I'm on the right road now

    Yeah, I lost my way
    Damn near lost my mind
    Pedal to the metal, let the devil lead me blind
    I was way outside the lines
    Yeah, and I got way off track
    Took some wrong turns lookin' back
    It's been one helluva ride in my rear view
    And I thank the good Lord for the detours to you

    Yeah, the detours to you

    Well I lost my way
    Damn near lost my mind
    Pedal to the metal, let the devil lead me blind
    I was way outside the lines
    And I got way off track
    Took some wrong turns lookin' back
    It's been one helluva ride in my rear view
    And only He knows all the hell I had to go through
    I thank Him for the detours to you
    All the detours to you Writer/s: David Turnbull, Jacob Davis, Jordan Carl Davis
