Becky was a beauty from south alabama
Her daddy had a heart like a nine pound hammer
Think he even did a little time in the slammer
What was I thinkin?
She snuck out one night met me by the front gate
Her daddy came out wavin that 12 gage
We tore out the drive and he peppered my tail gate
What was I thinkin?
Oh I knew there'd be hell to pay
But that crossed my mind a little to late

Cause I was thinkin bout a little white tank top sittin right there in the middle by me,
I was thinkin bout a long kiss man just gotta get goin where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin
But what was I thinkin?
What was I thinkin'?

By the county line the cops are nippin on our heels
Pulled of the road and kicked it in 4 wheel
Shut off the lights and tore through a corn field
What was I thinkin?
Out the other side she was hollerin "faster"
Took the dirt road had the radio blastin
Hit the hokney tonk for a little close dancin
What was I thinkin?
Oh I knew there'd be hell to pay
But that crossed my mind a little too late

Cause I was thinkin bout a little white tank top sittin right there in the middle by me,
I was thinkin bout a long kiss man just gotta get goin where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin but what was I thinkin?

When the mountain of a man with a born to kill tattoo
Tried to cut in I knocked out his front tooth
We ran out side hood slidin like beau duke
What was I thinkin?
I finally got her home at a half past too late
Her daddy's in a lawn chair sittin on the driveway
Put it in park as he started my way
What was I thinkin?
Oh what was I thinkin?
Oh what was I thinkin?
Then she gave a come and get me grin
And like a bullet we were gone again

Cause I was thinkin bout a little white tank top sittin right there in the middle by me,
I was thinkin bout a long kiss man just gotta get goin where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin yeah I know what I was feelin but what was I thinkin? what was I thinkin?

I know what I was feelin.
What was I thinkin
Guess I was thinkin bout that tank top
And those cut offs
