Same Saturday night, same ol' crowd
Draggin' main to the safe way then we turn back around
To curfew, then head down to the river's edge and get drunk
Ain't nothing new what else you gonna do out in Podunk

I knew this six-string was my ticket out
No flashin' red light was gonna slow me down
18 years old everything that I owned in the back of that truck
I put a dip in my mouth and I headed straight out outta Podunk

Goodbye, daddy looked me in the eye
Said, "Go where you gotta go, but don't forget to call home"
And momma cried, "Keep Jesus in your life"
And I hugged her one last time
And then I headed down the road in a dusty cloud of smoke out of Podunk

A lot of years gone by it's showin' on my face
Ain't nothing in this life that time hasn't changed
I chased a lot of dreams and some of them came true
Ain't it funny how the very place I ran from is the place I'm runnin' to

Another Saturday night singin' to the same ol' crowd
Still playin' this six-string but things are different now
I met one of those girls turn your whole world around girls
And wouldn't you know it
We got our eyes on a house 'bout a hundred miles south out in Podunk

Goodbye, her daddy looked me in the eye
And said, "Go where you gotta go son, but don't forget to call home"
And her momma cried, "Keep Jesus in your life"
And we hugged her one last time
Then we headed down the road to start a family of our own out in Podunk

Goodbye, her daddy looked me in the eye
And said, "Go where you gotta go son, but don't forget to call home"
Out in Podunk, keep Jesus in your life
We hugged her one last time
Then we headed down the road out in Podunk

Daddy looked me in the eye
And said, "Go where you gotta go, don't forget to call home"
(Goodbye)
Keep Jesus in your life, I hugged her one last time
Headed down that road
(Goodbye)
