Tailgate

Album: Yet to be titled (2018)
  • We were a couple kids in a pickup foolin' around
    We learned how to keep it so nobody found out
    Mama don't need to know everything
    Some things, you keep to yourself
    Like dumb things you do when you're seventeen
    On the DL

    But if that tailgate ever tells
    I'd be the small talk of the town
    I'm sure I'd catch all kinds of hell
    For every time we laid it down
    In the back of that race red F-150
    We get to kissin', we get to slippin' off clothes
    And nobody knows and only will
    If that tailgate ever tells

    (Tailgate, don't tell on me)
    (Don't tell on me, tailgate) if that tailgate ever tells
    (Tailgate, don't tell on me)
    (Don't tell on me, tailgate)

    You, me, we had bare feet hangin' off the edge
    Two drinks, then we lay it on back in the bed
    Mama don't need to know everything
    Some things, you keep to yourself
    We knew that's all that we'd ever be
    On the DL

    But if that tailgate ever tells
    I'd be the small talk of the town
    I'm sure I'd catch all kinds of hell
    For every time we laid it down
    In the back of that race red F-150
    We get to kissin', we get to slippin' off clothes
    And nobody knows and only will
    If that tailgate ever tells

    (Tailgate, don't tell on me)
    (Don't tell on me, tailgate) if that tailgate ever tells
    (Tailgate, don't tell on me)
    (Don't tell on me, tailgate)

    What happens on a dirt road stays on a dirt road out here
    What we're doin' in the dark when we're underneath the stars is our own business

    But if that tailgate ever tells
    I'd be the small talk of the town
    I'm sure I'd catch all kinds of hell
    For every time we laid it down
    In the back of that race red F-150
    We get to kissin', we get to slippin' off clothes
    And nobody knows and only will
    If that tailgate ever tells

    (Tailgate, don't tell on me)
    (Don't tell on me, tailgate) if that tailgate ever tells
    (Tailgate, don't tell on me)
    (Don't tell on me, tailgate) tailgate, don't tell, no
    (Tailgate, don't tell on me)
    (Don't tell on me, tailgate) don't tell on me, tail
    (Tailgate, don't tell on me)
