Well sometimes I lose my direction
And sometimes I jump off track
But when I hide out baby, I can always get it back
I need to feel the cool breeze in my face
The rumble of the engine between my legs
Hey little sister, you can color me gone

So if I wanna stay out all night long
You can't stop me from runnin' wild
Yeah, don't you worry how long I'm gone
I'll come back every once in a while

I pick 'em up and lay 'em all down
I never like my feet to ever hit the ground
Don't miss me when I'm gone, 'cause I'll be around
I'm a free spirit baby pick me up and lay me on down
That's right

Well I know I got me a good life, Jim Beam
And women, they treat me right
I make my own rules, like it or not
Now don't misunderstand me baby
I give in every once in a while
Well it's tough love honey, I'll leave you with that smile

So if I wanna stay out all night long
You can't stop me from runnin' wild
Now don't you worry how long I'm gone
I'll come back every once in a while

I pick 'em up and lay 'em all down
I never like my feet to ever hit the ground
Don't miss me when I'm gone, 'cause I'll be around
I'm a free spirit baby pick me up and lay me on down

I've been here, I've been there, I've been everywhere
I wouldn't tell you no lies
And just like me you're a wild one
Won't you take me for a ride

I pick 'em up and lay 'em all down
I never like my feet to ever hit the ground
Don't miss me when I'm gone, 'cause I'll be around
I'm a free spirit baby pick me up and lay me on down
Yeah, I'm a free spirit baby, pick me up and lay me on down

You got to lay me on down, yes you do
I'm a free spirit, oh you know you are Johnny
Oh that's what I am
