7 Summers

Album: Dangerous (2020)
Charted: 6
  • Yeah, you used to talk about
    Gettin' even further south
    Somewhere where the summer lasted all year 'round
    Probably got a big ol' diamond on your hand right now
    Maybe a baby or a couple by now
    Long driveway to a big white house

    But I wonder when you're drinkin'
    If you find yourself thinkin'
    About that boy from East Tennessee
    And I know we both knew better
    But we still said forever
    And that was seven summers ago
    In southern comfort
    Were we dumb or just younger?
    Who knows
    Back then you used to love the river
    And sippin' on a sixer with me
    Does it ever make you sad to know
    That was seven summers ago?

    Yeah, I bet your daddy's so proud
    Of how his little girl turned out
    Thinks she dodged a bullet
    Of a good old boy like me
    'Cause I still go drinkin', same friends on Friday
    Bought a few acres, couple roads off the highway
    Guess you never saw things my way, anyway

    But I wonder when you're drinkin'
    If you find yourself thinkin'
    About that boy from East Tennessee
    And I know we both knew better
    But we still said forever
    And that was seven summers ago
    In southern comfort
    Were we dumb or just younger?
    Who knows
    Back then you used to love the river
    And sippin' on a sixer with me
    Does it ever make you sad to know
    That was seven summers ago?

    Seven summers ago
    Seven summers ago

    Yeah, I wonder when you're drinkin'
    If you find yourself thinkin'
    About that boy from East Tennessee
    And I know we both knew better
    But we still said forever
    And that was seven summers ago
    In southern comfort
    Were we dumb or just younger?
    Who knows
    Back then you used to love the river
    And sippin' on a sixer with me
    Does it ever make you sad to know
    That was seven summers ago?
