Podunk Lyrics

Podunk by Keith Anderson  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Podunk Same Saturday night, same ol' crowd,
Drag in Main to the Safeway, then we turn back around.
To a curfew, then head down to the river's edge: get drunk.
Ain't nothin' new: What else you gonna do out in Podunk?

I knew this six-string's was my ticket out,
An' no flashin' red light was gonna slow me down.
Eighteen-years-old, everything that I own in the back of that truck.
I put a dip in my mouth, an' I headed straight out: out of Podunk.

Goodbye: Daddy looked me in the eye:
Said: "Go where you gotta go,
"An' don't forget to call home."
An' Momma cried: "You keep Jesus in your life."
And I hugged her one last time,
Then I headed down the road,
In a dusty cloud of smoke out of Podunk.

Instrumental Break.

Lotta years gone by, they're showin' on my face.
Ain't nothin' in this life that time hasn't changed.
Chased a lot of dreams, an' 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: things are diff'rent now.
I met one of them girls: turn your whole world around girls, an' wouldn't you know it,
Got her eyes on a house, 'bout a hundred miles south, out in Podunk.

Goodbye: her Daddy looked me in the eye:
He said: "Go where you gotta go, son,
"An' don't forget to call home."
An' her Momma cried: "You keep Jesus in your life."
An' we hugged her one last time,
Then we headed down the road,
To start a family of our own out of Podunk.

Goodbye: her Daddy looked me in the eye:
He said: "Go where you gotta go, son,
"Don't forget to call home."
Out in Podunk.
(Goodbye.)
"Keep Jesus in your life."
An' we hugged her one last time,
An' headed down that road,
Out in Podunk.

(Goodbye.)
Her Daddy looked me in the eye:
He said: "Go where you gotta go,
"Don't forget to call home."
(Goodbye.)
"Keep Jesus in your life."
An' I hugged her one last time,
Headed down that road,
(Goodbye.)

To Fade.
