  • She asked me where I was from
    I said "Somewhere you never been to"
    Little town outside of Knoxville
    Hidden by some dogwood trees
    She tried talkin' with my accent
    We held hands and waded into
    That blue water
    She left her flip-flops by my Red Wings on the beach

    Yeah, but now I'm dodging potholes in my sunburnt Silverado
    Like a heart-broke Desperado, headed right back to my roots
    Somethin' bout the way she kissed me tells me she'd love Eastern Tennessee
    Yeah, but all I brought back with me was some sand in my boots

    I said "Let's go shoot tequila"
    So we walked back to that beach bar
    She said "Don't cowboy's drink whiskey?" huh
    So we drank bottom shelf
    She said "Damn, that sky looks perfect"
    I said, "Girl you've never seen stars like the ones back home"
    And she said "Maybe I should see them for myself"

    Yeah but, now I'm dodging potholes in my sunburnt Silverado
    Like a heart-broke Desperado, headed right back to my roots
    Somethin' bout the way she kissed me tells me she'd love Eastern Tennessee
    Yeah, but all I brought back with me was some sand in my boots

    I said "Meet me in the mornin'"
    And she told me I was crazy
    Yeah, but I still thought that maybe she'd show up

    Ah, but now I'm dodging potholes in my sunburnt Silverado
    Like a heart-broke Desperado, headed right back to my roots
    Somethin' bout the way she kissed me tells me she'd love Eastern Tennessee
    Yeah, but all I brought back with me was some sand in my boots
    Yeah, but all I brought back with me was some sand in my boots Writer/s: Ashley Gorley, Josh Osborne, Michael Hardy
