Red roadside wild flower if I'd only picked you
Took you home set you on the counter
Oh, at least a time or two
Maybe she'd thought it through

Yellow sunset slowly dippin' down in the rear view
Oh, how she'd love to sit and watch you
I could have done that a whole lot more
If I hadn't been so stubborn
Been so selfish
Thought about her more
Thought about me less
Joked and maked her laugh
Held her when she cried
A little more that, maybe I

Wouldn't be drivin' like hell
Flyin' like crazy down the highway
Callin' everyone we know
Stoppin' any place she might be
Goin' any place she might go
Beatin' on the dash
Screamin' out her name at the windshield
Tears soakin' up my face
If I had loved her this much all along
Maybe, maybe, yeah maybe
She wouldn't be gone
She wouldn't be gone

She warned me it was comin'
Said if I didn't change
She was leavin'
I just didn't believe
She would ever really walk out
God, I believe her now
Called her mamma
Cried like a baby to her best friend
If they've seen her, they ain't sayin'
They ain't sayin
Now, I'm cursing like a fool
Prayin' it ain't too late
All I wanna do is fix my mistakes
Find her, beg her for one more try
Until then damn it I"ll

Wouldn't be drivin' like hell
Flyin' like crazy down the highway
Callin' everyone we know
Stoppin' any place she might be
Goin' any place she might go
Beatin' on the dash
Screamin' out her name at the windshield
Tears soakin' up my face
If I had loved her this much all along
Maybe, maybe, yeah maybe
She wouldn't be gone
She wouldn't be gone

I wouldn't be beatin' on the dash
Screamin' out her name at the windshield
Tears soakin' up my face
If I had loved her this much all along
Maybe, maybe, yeah maybe
She wouldn't be gone

Red roadside wild flower if I'd only picked you
Took you home set you on the counter
Oh, at least a time or two
Maybe she'd thought it through

    I think this song is actually bout his daughter.. Think about it. He talks bout puttin her on the counter (in my house, when a kid gets hurt daddy puts u on the "medicine counter" and fixes u up. ) and he talks about holdin her and such. Idk it could be about a wife/ girlfriend too though!
