  • When I lose my smile
    When my thoughts get jumbled
    When the air and b.s. get too thick
    Can't take a breath without getting sick
    I've had enough with this concrete jungle
    I drop my truck in drive
    I pick up my baby
    She jumps in with a kiss and a hey
    We exit off that old highway
    Sometimes you gotta go beyond the pavement

    You gotta go deep
    Way on back
    Cross a few creeks
    And a couple little shacks
    You gotta get lost
    Way on out
    Crickets and frogs
    Yeah you're gettin' close now
    And you kick it into four wheel drive when you run out of road
    And you go, and you go and you go-go-go
    'Til you hear a banjo, ah there it is

    It ain't on no map
    And I'm glad it isn't
    Leave the phone and the GPS,
    Those satellites ain't found it yet,
    Got our own little piece of heaven hidden

    You gotta go deep
    Way on back
    Cross a few creeks
    And a couple little shacks
    You gotta get lost
    Way on out
    Crickets and frogs
    Yeah you're gettin' close now
    And you kick it into four wheel drive when you run out of road
    And you go, and you go and you go, go, go, go
    'Til you hear that banjo, yeah woo

    You gotta go deep
    Way on back
    Cross a few creeks
    And a couple little shacks
    Hell you gotta get lost
    Way on out
    Yeah crickets and frogs
    Hey you're gettin' close now
    And you kick it into four wheel drive when you run out of road
    And you go, and you go and you go, and you go, and you go, and you go, woo oo
    'Til you hear that banjo, kick it

    Gotta go deep
    A way on back
    Yeah cross a few creeks
    And a couple little shacks
    Four wheel drive when you run out of road
    And you go, and you go, and you go
    'Til you hear that, 'til you hear that, 'til you hear that banjo

    That's nice
    Let's go
    Kick that thing into four wheel drive
    Let's go
    'Til you hear that

    Until you hear that banjo
    Until you hear that banjo Writer/s: Anthony Martin, Neil Thrasher, Wendell Mobley
