Dirt Road

Album: single release only (2014)
  • When a preacher talks of heaven, he paints it real nice
    He says, you better get to livin', better get to livin' right
    If you're gonna get your mansion, he's been saving for your soul
    If you're gonna do your dancing on city streets of gold

    But unless it's got a dirt road leading down to a fishing hole
    With a little piece of moonlight, a couple cans of Bud Light
    Where I can cuddle with my baby and I can pull her real close
    No, I don't wanna go unless heaven's got a dirt road

    You better quit your drinking, you better quit your smoking too
    Be for trading in your backseat Saturday nights for Sunday morning pew
    Well, I've never been nothing, nothing more than what you see
    Like my truck, I'm made for running, down to a midnight creek

    So unless it's got a dirt road leading down to a fishing hole
    With a little piece of moonlight, a couple cans of Bud Light
    Where I can cuddle with my baby and I can pull her real close
    No, I don't wanna go unless heaven's got a dirt road

    All of this flying high, gonna leave ya falling short
    Leave you knock, knock, knocking on heaven's basement door
    But one thing's for sure

    Unless it's got a dirt road leading down to a fishing hole
    With a little piece of moonlight, a couple cans of Bud Light
    Where I can cuddle with my baby and I can pull her real close
    No, I don't wanna go unless heaven's got a dirt road Writer/s: RUSSELL DAVIS, JEWEL KILCHER, DAVE BERG, LISA CARVER, MARV GREEN, TRAVIS HILL, SOPHIE HOLIDAY
