Meanwhile Back At Mama's (Lyric Version)

Running round in this new truck
Bank let's me borrow from month to month
Running out of credit and find a little cash on the radio

Standing still they're blowing past
Numbers on cars going Nascar fast
What I wouldn't give for a slow down, don't you know
'Cause where I come from, only the horses run
When the day is done, we take it easy

Meanwhile back at Mama's
The porch lights on, come on in if you wanna
Suppers on the stove, and beer's in the fridge
Red sun sinking out low on the ridge
Games on the tube and daddy smoked cigarettes
Whiskey keeps his whistle wet
Funny the things you thought you'd never miss
In a world gone crazy as this

Well I found a girl and we don't fit in here
Talk about how hard it is to breathe here
Even with the windows down, can't catch a southern breeze here
One of these days gonna pack it up and leave here

'Cause meanwhile back at Mama's
The porch lights on, come on in if you wanna
Suppers on the stove, and beer's in the fridge
Red sun sinking out low on the ridge
Games on the tube and daddy smoked cigarettes
Whiskey keeps his whistle wet
Funny the things you thought you'd never miss
In a world gone crazy as this

Oh I miss yeah a little dirt on the road
I miss corn growing in a row
I miss being somebody everybody knows there
Everybody knows everybody
I miss those small town roots
Walking around in muddy boots
The sound of rain on an old tin roof
It's time we head on back

'Cause meanwhile back at Mama's
The for sale signs going up and I'm gonna
Dump this truck and the little I've got
On a loan to own and a 3 acre lot
Put supper on the stove and beer in the fridge
Going for broke, yeah we're gonna be rich
Watch the sun settin' on the ridge
Baby tell me whatcha think about this,

Me and you back at Mama's
Yeah, me and you back at Mama's
