  • She stole my heart
    Faster than a heat seeking missile on a mission
    Faster than a bass took a hook when daddy fishing
    Faster than a walnut rolls off a hen house
    Faster than a whiskey shot goes down down South

    Ooh, I saw white lightning
    Ooh, I saw white lightning

    Faster than a McQueen running them red lights
    Faster than the Duke boys jumping that hillside
    Faster than Elvis could shake rattle 'nd roll
    Faster than a skirt flying up on the Row, I said

    Ooh, I saw white lightning
    Ooh, I saw white lightning
    Ooh, I saw white lightning

    Faster than number three breaking every record
    Faster than a tree dies in the desert
    Faster than a bug splattered on my windshield
    Faster than you die when you take too many pills

    Ooh, I saw white lightning
    Ooh, I saw white lightning

    Alabama moonshine intoxicating this old heart
    Holdin' a metal umbrella when the storm started
    Oh that's what love's supposed to feel like, yeah
    Oh that's what love's supposed to feel like, woah yeah
    Oh that's what love's supposed to feel like, yeah
    Oh yeah that's what love feels like

    Ooh, I saw white lightning
