Sittin in six lane backed up traffic
Horns a honkin, I've about had it
I'm lookin for an exit sign
Gotta get outta here, get it all off my mind
And like a memory from your grandpa's attic
A song comes slippin through the radio static
Changin my mood
A little George Strait 1982

And it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the long way home
Put a little gravel in my travel
Unwind, unravel all night long
Makes me wanna grab my honey
Tear down some two lane country
Who knows
Get lost and get right with my soul
Makes me wanna take, makes me wanna take a back road

I've been cooped up, tied down
'Bout forgotten what a field looks like full of corn and cotton
If I'm gonna hit a traffic jam
Well it better be a tractor man
So sick and tired of this interstate system
I need the curvin, windin, twistin dusty path to nowhere
With the wind blowin through my baby's hair

Yeah it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the long way home
Put a little gravel in my travel
Unwind, unravel all night long
Makes me wanna grab my honey
Tear down some two lane country
Who knows
Get lost and get right with my soul
Makes me wanna take, makes me wanna take a back road
Some old back road

Maybe it's the feelin
Or maybe it's the freedom
Maybe it's that shady spot where we park the truck when things get hot
Girl we park the truck when things get hot

And it makes me wanna take a back road
Makes me wanna take the long way home
Put a little gravel in my travel
Unwind, unravel all night long
Makes me wanna grab your honey
Tear down some two lane country
Who knows
Get lost and get right with my soul
Makes me wanna take, makes me wanna take a back road

Some old back road
Get right with my soul
All I gotta do is take some old back road
To the shady spot where things get hot girl
Way down, way down, way down some old back road
