Same Saturday night, same ol' crowd
Draggin' Main to the Safeway then turn back around
'Til curfew and then head down to the river's edge and get drunk
Ain't nothing new what else you gonna do out in Podunk

I knew this six-string was my ticket out
No flashin' red light was gonna slow me down
18 years old everything that I owned in the back of that truck
I put a dip in my mouth and I headed straight out outta, Podunk

[1st Chorus:]
Goodgye, daddy looked me in the eye said go where you gotta go
Don't forget to call home
And momma cried keep Jesus in your life and I hugged her one last time
And then I headed down the roadin a dusty cloud of smoke
Out of Podunk

[Bridge:]
A lot of years gone by, showin' on my face
Nothing in this life that time hasn't changed
I chased a lot of dreams and some of them came true
Ain't it funny how the very place I ran from, is the place I'm runnin' to

Another Saturday night singin' to the same ol' crowd
Still playin this six-string but things are different now, I met one
Of those girls turn your whole world around girls
And wouldn't you know it
We got our eyes on a house about a hundred miles south
Out in Podunk

[2nd Chorus:]
Goodbye, her daddy looked me in the eye
And said go where you gotta go son don't forget to call home
And her momma cried said keep Jesus in your life and we hugged her one last time
Then we headed down the road to start a family of our own
Out in Podunk

[Repeat 2nd Chorus 2x]
