Kind of a wierd structure for me. I usually have a chorus, but I didn't feel it here.


V1
I got the hammer down in the left lane
Passing mile markers on the interstate.
A pretty girl in the passenger seat
I’m singing for her, she’s laughing at me.
We’re driving west on I-30 headed down to Texarkana.
No worries about today, just living life like we wanna.

V2
I got the ragtop down on the old highway.
Pocket full of cash, it’s pay day.
A country song on the radio.
Going wherever she wants to go.
We’re cruising at 55 with the wind blowing through our hair.
Don’t know where we’re going guess we’ll know when we get there.

Bridge
We’re going pedal to the metal every mile.
Singing every country song on the radio dial.
No plans to drive down Park Avenue.
Too much life ahead of us, no concerns in the rearview.

V3
I got the tailgate down on a dusty back road.
Sneak off and park by my secret fishing hole.
Look at the stars above our heads.
Cuddled under a blanket in my truck bed.
We’re making love to the sound of nature’s symphony.
We aint worried about tomorrow, we’re just making these memories.

Outro
I got the hammer down in the left lane.
Passing mile markers on the interstate.
Pretty girl in the passenger seat.
I’m singing for her, she’s laughing at me.

BRD I have to say this one isn't my favorite.

I've been holding off posting hoping I could give you something specific to look at, rather than just being vague, but I'm afraid I can't put my finger on what it is. I figured it was better to give you any feedback rather than none, so here it is. Wish I could be more constructive. :?

No problem! They can't all be winners.
