I dropped by to check on mama, for a minute,
I could hear her humming a tune through the screen door in the kitchen
She was puttin' the final touches on a homemade pecan pie
And just like always I was, right on time

A little game of guess-who and I got a hug and "how's my baby"
I said, "You know me mama I've been hittin' it hard, runnin' like crazy
But I don't wanna bore you with that same old nothing's-new,
I'd rather just pull up this chair and get caught up on you"

Ain't it funny how it all comes back around,
I remember when I couldn't wait to get out of her hair and ditch this town.
I was restless a time to move on,
Now it's any reason to go back home,
That's what's it all about,
Yeah, I'm just slowin' down,
To get my feet back on the ground.

That minute turned into an hour before I knew it
And I got my fill on pie and how's everybody doing
I used to look through every reason in the world to hit that door
And she said, "You want another cup of coffee?"
I said, "Yeah, I'll take one more"

Ain't it funny how it all comes back around,
I remember when I couldn't wait to get out of her hair and ditch this town.
I was restless and time to move on,
Now it's any reason to go back home,
That's what's it all about,
Yeah, I'm just slowin' down,
To get my feet back on the ground.

And now, I can't go too many days without
Checkin' in, just touchin' base, and just slowin' down
Back on the ground.
I dropped by to check on mama, for a minute...

    This song is so touching. I go to college now and feel the same way. I couldn't wait to leave my small little town and go into the big city and start school. It's my second year at school and now i look forward to going back home every once in a while and sleeping in my own bed, cuddling with my dogs, and eating my mom's home made food.

    Every restless teen knows that feeling they had when they were still in their last years of high school and couldn't wait to get out of that boring hometown. But after they leave they realize the true feeling of home and family and just want that comfort of coming back home and getting back to what they are used to. And getting "back on the ground. "
