  • Picked a wildflower off the side of the road
    You put it in my hair
    Two bare feet up on the dashboard
    Hands waving through the summer air
    Looking at you, looking at me
    With the wind strapped to our backs
    Flying as high as a bird in the sky
    Don’t get much better than that

    [Chorus]
    And we sang all the way down to Tupelo
    Love struck right on the money
    Heartbeats a beating to the radio
    Kisses sweet as the honey
    Down in Tupelo
    All the way down to Tupelo

    Counting the white lines a mile by mile
    Worries slipping away
    Took a back road for a little slow down
    Off of the interstate
    We followed the river as far as it goes
    Smiling in the July sun
    Hearing you say, you were falling in love
    I said, you ain’t the only one

    [Chorus]

    La la la la la la
    Wind strapped to our backs
    La la la la la la
    Don’t get much better than that

    And we sang all the way down to Tupelo
    Love struck right on the money
    Heartbeats a beating to the radio
    Kisses sweet, kisses sweet

    [Chorus]

    La la la la la la
    La la la la la la
    La la la la la la
    La la la la la la

    All the way down to Tupelo, yeah
    All the way down to Tupelo
    All the way down to Tupelo Writer/s: GORDIE SAMPSON, HILARY LINDSAY, STEVE MC EWAN
