  • Now Johnny's firing up his Coleman grill
    We've got 24 tall boys on the chill
    Yeah, fourteen of 'em's mine
    A little Marshall Tucker on the radio
    (Can't you see)
    You know we're just catching a little groove before the show
    We ain't playing nothing slow

    At the parking lot party
    Tailgate buzz just sipping on suds
    Ain't never too early
    To light one up, fill up your cup
    'Cause there ain't no party like the pre-party
    And after the party, the after-party
    At the parking lot party

    Well, the opening band is doing sound-check
    Man, they sound pretty good
    Hell, I ain't even bought no tickets yet
    Yeah, but that's alright we don't care
    'Cause all the pretty girls are sitting right here
    Kicking back in the lawn chairs

    At the parking lot party
    Tailgate buzz just sipping on suds
    Ain't never too early
    To light one up, fill up your cup
    'Cause there ain't no party like the pre-party
    And after the party, the after-party
    At the parking lot party
    (Ah, pass me the chicken wings now)

    Whoa!
    Old Tom is pulling his guitar out
    Whoa!
    It's about time to pass that shine around
    Hey!
    Show's about to start but we ain't about to leave
    Hey!
    It's one hell of a time and it's all for free!

    At the parking lot party
    Tailgate buzz just sipping on suds
    Ain't never too early
    To light one up, fill up your cup
    'Cause there ain't no party like the pre-party
    And after the party, the after-party
    At the parking lot party

    Oh yeah now, come on
    Parking lot party
    Oh, they're gonna have to tow my ass out of here
    Parking lot party
    Oh, man, damn, girl
    Parking lot party (Whoa!)
    Parking lot party (Don't think I've ever seen that before, hey, Lord!)

    At the parking lot party
    Tailgate buzz just sipping on suds
    Ain't never too early
    To light one up, fill up your cup
    'Cause there ain't no party like the pre-party
    And after the party, is the after-party
    At the parking lot party Writer/s: THOMAS RHETT, RHETT AKINS, LEE BRICE, LUKE LAIRD
