Flyin' Down a Back Road

Album: Outlaws Like Me (2011)
  • I've been on the Grand Ole Opry
    I've played a show with ZZ Top
    Went on tour with Skynyrd and man they still rock
    Shot the bull with Bocephus, before he climbed up on his jet
    Played south Florida with Alan Jackson
    That's some things that you never forget
    And all that stuff it makes you feel real good
    But not near as good

    As flyin' down a back road
    With some buddies from back home
    A splash of Jack in my Coke
    Catchin' bream on a Zebco
    Spottin' deer in a hay field
    After church a Sunday meal
    Huggin' mama before I go
    Flyin' down a back road

    Up there in Des Moines
    They knew my songs line by line
    I just stood there in the fake smoke
    Another dream came true that night
    I've seen so many places,
    I thought I'd never see
    All the way from California to as far as you could go East
    And all that stuff it makes you feel real good,
    But not near as good

    As flyin' down a back road
    With some buddies from back home
    A splash of Jack in my Coke
    Catchin' brine on a Zebco
    Spottin' deer in a hay field
    After church a Sunday meal
    Huggin' mama before I go
    Yeah, Flyin' down a back road

    I'm a lucky man, I gotta real good life
    With all the things I've done
    Nothin' gets me as high
    As flyin' down a back road
    With some buddies from back home
    A splash of Jack in my Coke
    Catchin' brine on a Zebco
    Spottin' deer in a hay field
    After church a Sunday meal
    And huggin' mama before I go
    Yeah, flyin' down a back road
    Oh, flyin' down a back road Writer/s: JEREMY STOVER, JAMIE PAULIN, JUSTIN MOORE
