  • We drove right past
    That no trespassing sign
    We sat on the tailgate
    And watched the planes take off

    We thought we had all night
    There was no need to rush
    That's when those cops
    Came pulling up
    And I thought
    Man, ain't this some shh

    Your daddy's gonna kill me
    But if I survive tonight
    I wouldn't change one thing
    Baby, yeah
    I know it sounds crazy

    But there was somethin' bout the way
    The blue lights were shinin'
    Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
    I was too busy watching you
    Going wild child
    To be worried about going to jail
    You were thinking that
    Running for it
    Would make a good story
    I was thinking you were crazy as hell
    And you were so innocent
    But you were stealing my heart
    I fell in love in the back of a cop car

    Man, they weren't playin
    They sure threw those cuffs on quick
    You tried to sweet talk 'em
    They didn't fall for it, but I did
    You were on the left
    I was on the right
    I knew you didn't smoke
    When you asked him for a light
    And I laughed
    He got mad and slammed the door

    Your daddy's gonna kill me
    But if I survive tonight
    I wouldn't change one thing
    Baby, yeah
    I know it sounds crazy

    But there was somethin' bout the way
    The blue lights were shinin'
    Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
    I was too busy watching you
    Going wild child
    To be worried about going to jail
    You were thinking that
    Running for it
    Would make a good story
    I was thinking you were crazy as hell
    And you were so innocent
    But you were stealing my heart
    I fell in love in the back of a cop car

    Oh and you were like oh oh oh oh oh oh
    Side by side
    And locked in tight
    They were taking their time
    But we didn't mind

    We talked, we laughed
    We sat real close
    By the time they let us go
    I was already gone

    But there was somethin' bout the way
    The blue lights were shinin'
    Bringing out the freedom in your eyes
    I was too busy watching you
    Going wild child
    To be worried about going to jail
    You were thinking that
    Running for it
    Would make a good story
    I was thinking you were crazy as hell
    And you were so innocent
    But you were stealing my heart
    I fell in love in the back of a cop car
    I fell in love in the back of a cop car

    Side by side
    And locked in tight
    They were taking their time
    But we didn't mind

    We talked, we laughed
    We sat real close
    By the time they let us go
    I was already gone (oh oh oh)
    I was already gone baby

    I fell in love in the back of a cop carWriter/s: MATTHEW JENKINS, ZACHERY CROWELL, SAM HUNT
