Country Town

Drivin' down this old dirt road
Like a thousand times before
I see your rusty pick-up truck
Parked down by Miller's store
I'd like to stop and talk a while
But the horses just won't wait
Hope to see you in a bit
If I don't get done too late

In a country town
The world turns slower
The sun sets lower
And I'm fine with that
In a country town
There are good people all around
And no one ever lets you down
In a country town

It's Friday night and the football lights
Are shinin' on the field
I came too late to tailgate
Man, this day has been unreal
I see you sittin' in the stands
And then you smile at me
The home team scores, the whole crowd roars
But you're all I can see

We'll go out to celebrate, but won't stay out too late
Just long enough to drink a couple of beers
We'll take the long way home, stop just to be alone
Up on the ridge the stars all seem so near

When Sunday comes we get dressed up
Put our money in the plate
And laugh at all the preacher's jokes
Don't even hesitate
At 12:01 we make a dash for Mama's sweet iced tea
Say grace before our dinner and thank God for family
