Sand In My Boots

She asked me where I was from
I said, "Somewhere you never been to"
Little town outside of Knoxville
Headin' by some dogwood trees
She tried talkin' with my accent
We held hands and waded into
That blue water
She left her flip-flops by my Red Wings on the beach

Yeah but, now I'm dodging potholes
In my sunburnt Silverado
Like a heart-broke Desperado
Headin' right back to my roots
Somethin' 'bout the way she kissed me
Tells me she loves Eastern Tennessee
Yeah, but all I brought back with me
Was some sand in my boots

I said, "Let's go shoot tequila"
So we walked back to that beach bar
She said, "Don't cowboys drink whiskey?"
So we drank bottom shelf
She said, "Damn, that sky looks perfect"
I said, "Girl, you've never seen stars like the ones back home"
And she said, "Maybe I should see them for myself"

Yeah, but now I'm dodgin' potholes
In my sunburnt Silverado
Like a heart-broke Desperado
Headin' right back to my roots
Somethin' 'bout the way she kissed me
Tells me she loves Eastern Tennessee
Yeah, but all I brought back with me
Was some sand in my boots

I said, "Meet me in the morning"
And she told me I was crazy
Yeah, but I still thought that maybe she'd show up

Oh, but now I'm dodgin' potholes
In my sunburnt Silverado
Like a heart-broke Desperado
Headin' right back to my roots
Somethin' 'bout the way she kissed me
Tells me she loves Eastern Tennessee
Yeah, but all I brought back with me
Was some sand in my boots

Yeah, but all I brought back with me
Was some sand in my boots
