Song Description

A quiet, shy country guy works up the nerve to talk to an attractive girl, but has to wait a second to let his 'heart calm down' and his 'boots touch ground.' He may have been a little hesitant at first, but it pays off with beautiful first date memories and future talks under the Carolina moon. As he gets to know her, he realizes she's the perfect country girl to bring home to mama.

Story Behind the Song

jellybean and matto decided to write 'on assignment', with the goal of writing specifically for Scotty McCreery (though he didn't know we were writing for him!). Songwriting with their friend Nicole Koester, they had fun writing this song to capture the feeling of the exciting emotions of falling for someone. "When My Boots Touch Ground" is a fun, Country approach to young love.

Lyrics

"When My Boots Touch Ground"

Verse 1: Unforgettable
The moment I first saw you
Your red sundress had a magnetic effect
It pulled the sense right outta my brain
Unbelievable
You flashed a playful smile my way
But my mouth went dry and I was petrified
I couldn't even ask you your name

Prechorus: I know what I wanna say to you
And I'll get it out, baby have no doubt
But it will take a second or two

Chorus: When my heart calms down
And my boots touch ground
Then I'll know how to explain
What's going on
Down deep inside
That makes me feel this way
I'm flying high across the southern sky
And girl, I'll carry you away
When my boots touch ground
Darlin', when my boots touch ground

Verse 2: You're so beautiful
Under the Carolina moon
I can't resist asking for a kiss
On the tailgate of my Ford
And I get talking 'bout the game next week
You show your ankle tattoo of my college team
As we both laugh, you put on my ball cap
It makes me want you more

Prechorus: There's still so much I wanna say to you
I'll find the words and I'll sound absurd
But it might take another kiss or two

Chorus: [Repeat]

Bridge: I'm thinking that I wanna take you home to mama
She's been hoping and praying I'd find a country girl like you
Can't get ahead of myself but I
Could be falling in love this time

Chorus: [Repeat]
