There's still black marks on that county road, where we drag raced our pick ups, and mustangs
And weathered all the summer rain
And to this day up on that overpass, even underneath the new paint, you can still see,
"Allie will you marry me?"

Take a ride, look around
There ain't no doubt

It sure left it's mark on us, we sure left our mark on it
We let the world know we were here, with everything we did
We laid a lotta memories down, like tattoos on this town

There's still a rope burn on the old branch, that hangs over the river, I still got the scar
From swinging out a little too far
There ain't a corner of this hallowed ground, that we ain't laughed or cried on, it's where we loved,
Lived and learned a lotta stuff
It's everything we're made of

It sure left it's mark on us, we sure left our mark on it
We let the world know we were here, with everything we did
We laid a lotta memories down, like tattoos on this town
Like tattoos on this town

Everywhere, it's where we are
It gets me right, in my heart

It sure left it's mark on us, we sure left our mark on it
We let the world know we were here, with everything we did
We laid a lotta memories down,
But we'll always be hangin' round, like tattoos on this town
Like tattoos on this town
