  • I just remember her tan legs standin' on the side of the road
    Honda with the hood up, covered in smoke
    A thumb in the air, with somewhere to go in a hurry
    She didn't say a thing, she just jumped inside
    Stuck a gun to my chest and told me to drive
    I was scared but she was beautiful, like a movie
    She kept lookin' back like somethin' was comin'
    Said, "we ain't slowin' down, ain't stoppin' for nothin'"
    My truck was shakin', my blood was pumpin'
    But she was laughin'
    I about hit the brakes when we came around the corner
    A mile of blue lights, guns aimed and pointed
    Whatever she had is what they wanted
    And it's all a little fuzzy after that

    All I remember is sirens
    Blue lights flashin' and drivin'
    Dirt lane passin' and flyin'
    Tearin' through the red lights
    Blowin' through the stop signs
    All I remember is sirens
    Ringin' from the gun shots firin'
    One curve away from dyin'
    Yeah, all I remember is
    Sirens

    The man on the radio reported the chase
    And all about the beauty
    How she cleaned out the bank
    She was armed and dangerous
    And almost got away but they found her
    She was cussin' at choppers
    They were swirlin' around
    Reloadin' her revolver every couple-a rounds
    Shot off a couple shots
    But they wouldn't back down

    All I remember is sirens
    Blue lights flashin' and drivin'
    Dirt lane passin' and flyin'
    Tearin' through the red lights
    Blowin' through the stop signs
    All I remember is sirens
    Ringin' from the gun shots firin'
    One curve away from dyin'
    Really, all I remember is
    Sirens
    Yeah (sirens)

    We were all out of road and I knew she could tell
    'Cause she leaned across my lap and buckled my belt
    And kissed me on the cheek, said
    "Thanks for the help, hold on, boy"
    Well, she yanked the wheel and I held my breath
    We flipped so many times we shoulda been dead
    And that's all I got
    And I just woke up here and I said

    All I remember is sirens
    Blue lights flashin' and drivin'
    Dirt lane passin' and flyin'
    Tearin' through the red lights
    Blowin' through the stop signs
    All I remember is sirens
    Blue lights flashin' and smilin'
    One curve away from dyin'
    All I remember is
    Sirens, ooh
    Sirens
    And her blue eyes flashin'

    And those long legs standin' on the side of the road
    Her Honda with the hood up, covered in smoke
    Thumb in the air, somewhere to go in a hurry Writer/s: Jon Stone, Lance Miller, Lee Brice, Rob Hatch
