Sittin up on the roof
Sneakin a smoke by the chimney
Checkin out the moon
And the city lights
He takes off his flannel shirt
And drapes it around her shoulders
Slides up behind her and holds on tight
And she says
I don't want this night to end
Why does it have to end

[CHORUS:]
Tomorrow she'll be rollin down I-10 Baton Rouge
LSU
18 years in her rearview
He's got a friday paycheck lined up down the block
At daddy's shop
It ain't much but it's a job
They've been dreadin this moment all summer long
The night before
Life goes on

Oooh
A tear falls off her cheek and
Right when it hits his arm he says
Come on baby
Lets get outta here
They take one last drive around town
And man it
Already looks different
He bangs the wheel and says
Life ain't fair
And this growin up stuff man i don't know
I just don't wanna let you go

[CHORUS:]
Tomorrow she'll be rollin down I-10 Baton Rouge
LSU
18 years in her rearview
He's got a friday paycheck lined up down the block
At daddy's shop
It ain't much but it's a job
They've been dreadin this moment all summer long
The night before
Life goes on

Yeah that's what my momma told me
And just like those kids
I didn't wanna listen to no one
Yea there's nothin you can do
There's nothin you can say
And i know how it feels when love goes away

[CHORUS:]
Tomorrow she'll be rollin down I-10 Baton Rouge
LSU
18 years in her rearview
He's got a friday paycheck lined up down the block
At daddy's shop
It ain't much but it's a job
They've been dreadin this moment all summer long
But here it is
They don't have long
The night before
Life goes on
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

    This breaks my heart. This should have been me and Colt, but he wasn't ready to grow up I guess. I thought we could withstand everything, but we weren't even able to try to prove the world we could handle this little coflict because you jumped the ship before we got here. I amm going to Oklahoma soon and you are staying here. Goodbye my love
