Speeding down the highway just as fast as I can
The're after me I don't know why cause I did not shoot a man
At the county fair six rich boys approached my sister Nell
My little brother Bobby told them all to go to hell
I don't know why I don't know why they approached my little sister Nell
I don't know why I don't know why they had bad intentions toward my little sister Nell
Then a fight broke out it was six to one
They beat my brother Bobby in the name of fun
I don't know why I don't know why
The gang leader was the sheriffs son (2x)
Two friends saw the commotion so we ran down to the scene
Seeing Bobby getting beat that's when we intervened
Six to three we beat those boys right into the ground
The crowd started cheering us then we heard that sound
I don't know why I don't know why someone shot a gun (2X)
We all went running saw Nell and Bobby head for home
I jumped into my car and being all alone
Headed down the highway then I saw the flashing lights
No more use to run I knew it's not my night
I don't know why I don't know why it doesn't seem to be my day (2X)
I pulled off the highway two cops approached my car
After beating up the sheriffs son I may have gone to far
The officers questioned me all about the fight
I told them both my story then they said it was all right
We arrested the punk the sheriffs son and threw his ass in jail
His dad heard what he did slapped him up then posted bail
The shot you heard was a blank we were breaking up the crowd
The three of you and Bobby did your family proud
I don't know why I don't know why I got scared and ran away
I don't know why I don't know why some how everything is gonna be OK
Now about your speeding we both want you to know
You're not down south you'er Midwest grown we're gonna let you go
We understand why you ran when you heard that shot
You Bobby and your friends were the hero's thanks a lot
I don't know why I don't know why we were hero's of the day (2x)
I don't know why
