Sounds of Summer Lyrics

by Dierks Bentley

It's a tractor firin' up
Kids playin' in a field
Four wheels gettin' stuck
A line singin' out a fishin' reel
It's a cooler slidin' in the bed of a truck
A tin roof drippin' rain
Your baby sayin', come pick me up
Take me down to the riverbank

These are sounds goin' down in a nowhere town
Underneath the wide open sky
It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere
Can't you hear it comin' alive?
Makes you wanna drop it down a gear
And kill a couple of beers
Been waitin' all year, now it's finally here
Back around, these are the sounds of summer

It's the flick of a lighter lightin' up a little smoke
Boots climbin' barbwire, a little spot nobody goes
Lawn chairs breakin' out in the yard to the firework boom
Hearin' a heart beatin' in the dark, sayin' that she wants to

These are sounds goin' down in a nowhere town
Underneath the wide open sky
It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere
Can't you hear it comin' alive?
Makes you wanna drop it down a gear
And kill a couple of beers
Been waitin' all year, now it's finally here
Back around, these are the sounds of summer
Yeah the sounds of summer

'Round here that's what it's all about
So listen up and look around
It's who we are, it's what we love
So tonight let's crank 'em up

These sounds goin' down in a nowhere town
Underneath the wide open sky
It's the dust in the air and the freedom everywhere
Can't you hear it comin' alive?
It goes way too fast, it all disappears
And when it's gone, we'll still be here
Hangin' 'round, missin' the sounds of summer
Missin' the sounds of summer
The sounds of summer
Yeah, the sounds of summer
