  • My side of the tracks ain't wrong
    Just a little bit more country song
    I’ll tell your daddy it'll be alright
    When I pick you up around 6 tonight

    Long as my truck cranks up
    And it don’t break down
    And the levee hangs in
    And the bridge holds out
    The blue lights ain't where the blacktop ends
    The hole's still there in the barbed wire fence
    Whoa I'm taking you fishing in the dark tonight
    Your old man willin' and the creek don’t rise

    Ain't much money don't mean no fun
    It's all we got where I come from
    I'm taking you out where the high brows ain't
    Do some cashin' in at that muddy bank

    Long as my truck cranks up
    And it don’t break down
    And the levee hangs in
    And the bridge holds out
    The blue lights ain't where the blacktop ends

    Long as my truck cranks up
    And it don't break down
    And the levee hangs in
    And the bridge holds out
    The blue lights ain't where the blacktop ends
    That hole's still there in that barbed wire fence
    Whoa I'm taking you fishing in the dark tonight
    Old man willin' and the creek don’t rise

    Whoa and the creek don't rise and the creek don't rise Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
