Mama stood on the front porch wringin' her hands
Watched the tail lights fadin' on his black trans-am
With her precious little baby takin' off inside
Starin' at him with stars in her eyes
She tried to tell her but the girl might as well of been deaf
She wasn't goin' to listen to a word she said

Don't go down Maggie Creek Road
With a boy, lookin' like that
He'll tell you things that you want to hear
And there'll be no turnin' back
There's an oak tree down by the lake
In the shade where the wildflowers grow
What'll happen only Heaven knows
So don't go down Maggie Creek Road

It was a still black night as dark as coal
Nobody heard her, when she said "No"
Sje kicked n screamed and got free some how
Tore her dress on the door when he pushed her out
She walked 13miles on the gravel road
With tears in her eyes...
Twenty years ago

Don't go down Maggie Creek Road
With a boy, lookin' like that
He'll tell you things that you want to hear
And there'll be no turnin' back
There's an oak tree down by the lake
In the shade where the wildflowers grow
What'll happen only Heaven knows
So don't go down Maggie Creek Road

Some how mamas always know
Cuz they should of been home an hour ago
When she pulled up, it was just goin' down
She turned her headlights off, didn't make a sound
She heard her baby cry "No"
But he wouldn't stop
Her heart went cold n her blood ran hot
With a pistol in her hand, she opened his door
You don't wanna see mama, go to war

Don't go down Maggie Creek Road
With a boy, lookin' like that
He'll tell you things that you want to hear
And there'll be no turnin' back
There's an oak tree down by the lake
In the shade where the wildflowers grow
What'll happen only Heaven knows
So don't go down...
I said "Don't go down Maggie Creek Road"

Oh, Don't go down
Maggie Creek Road
Oh, Don't go down
Maggie Creek Road

Maggie Creek Road
