  • Girl, our mamas are best friends and so are we
    The whole town's rooting for us like the home team
    Most likely to settle down
    Plant a few roots real deep and let 'em grow
    But we can't stop this real world from spinnin' us
    Your bright lights called, I don't blame you for pickin' up
    Your big dream bags are all packed up and ready to go
    But I just need you to know

    That I love you more than a California sunset
    More than a beer when you ain't twenty-one yet
    More than a Sunday morning Lord
    Turnin' some poor lost souls 'round, Hallelujah bound
    Yeah, I love you more than the feeling when the bass hits a hook
    When the guy gets the girl at the end of the book
    But, baby, this might be the last time I get to lay you down
    'Cause I can't love you more than my hometown

    I ain't the runaway kind, I can't change that
    My heart's stuck in these streets like the train tracks
    City sky ain't the same black
    Ain't that a map dot shame, man, to think that

    I love you more than a California sunset
    More than a beer when you ain't twenty-one yet
    More than a Sunday morning Lord
    Turnin' some poor lost souls around, Hallelujah bound
    Yeah, I love you more than the feeling when the bass hits a hook
    When the guy gets the girl at the end of the book
    But, baby, this might be the last time I get to lay you down
    'Cause I can't love you more than my hometown

    Yeah, you got a wild in your eyes that I just wasn't born with
    I'm a same gas station cup of coffee in the mornin'
    I need the house on the hill, girl, not in 'em
    So hang onto these words 'til them avenues help you forget 'em

    'Cause I love you more than a California sunset
    I love you more in a twenty-dollar sundress
    Hate that loaded down car you got your keys in
    Girl, but I hate even more that you're leavin'
    'Cause I love you more than the feeling when the bass hits a hook
    When the guy gets the girl at the end of the book
    But that ain't you and me so I guess I'll see you around
    'Cause I can't love you more than my hometown

    Love you more than my hometown
    Love you more than my hometown
    Love you more, baby, love you more Writer/s: Ernest Keith Smith, Michael Hardy, Morgan Wallen, Ryan Vojtesak
