Moonshine Road

Album: New To This Town (2012)
  • Long-legged woman, velvet and lace
    A country boy can’t help but stare at your pretty face
    I like your outlaw attitude
    I like that long black car
    And I might just be your ticket out
    This ol' highbrow bar
    I don’t care who you are

    Yeah, throw me the keys
    Honey, take a seat
    Let me show you how to drive that thing
    Ridin' shotgun with a bootlegger’s son
    Sure to make a city girl scream
    I’m gonna take you places money don’t go
    I’m gonna teach you what a country boy knows
    Gonna cover you in diamonds and dust
    Where the stars fall on moonshine road
    Roll down that window, let down your fancy hair
    You’re a long way from New Orleans now
    Nobody ‘round here cares
    Oh can’t you smell that jasmine hanging in the air
    That’s the ghost of old plantations
    That burned to hell out there
    Yeah, girl we’re almost there

    Yeah, hold on tight
    Here comes the ride
    This is where the blacktop ends
    Gonna lose those lights, runnin' blind
    You’ll never be the same again
    I’m gonna take you places money don’t go
    I’m gonna teach you what a country boy knows
    I’ll cover you in diamonds and dust
    Where the stars fall on moonshine road

    I’m gonna take you places money don’t go
    I’m gonna teach you what a country boy knows
    Yeah, I’ll cover you in diamonds and dust
    Where the stars fall on moonshine road

    Long-legged woman, velvet and lace
    A country boy can’t help but stare at your pretty face
    At your pretty face

    Come on, throw me them keys
    Let me show you what that caddy’ll do right now
    Come on Writer/s: KIX BROOKS, LESLIE SATCHER
