Country Star

[Verse 1]
Walkin' downtown in her skater shoes
rockin' a crop top with an attitude,
I knew I knew nothing about this girl but one thing.
She was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen in life
One day I'd like to make her my wife.
I've been saying the same damn thing since we met in '14.

[Pre-Chorus]
I'll never forget that drive on 95
When she was feelin' good, said "boy turn up that dial"

[Chorus]
Saying "I wanna sing like a country star
there's just something 'bout that southern draw
that's got me wishing we were living where my favorite trees are
down south out of town.
Where I can be the girl you can't live without.
We'll build a life that you write about
In those songs you sing while you're tuggin' on strings connected to this old heart
I wanna sing like a country star."

[Verse 2]
But this life I live ain't about material things
It's about doin' what I love and making memories
So I can paint a picture with this old six string guitar.
'Cause I'll be a troubadour until the day I die
There ain't no better feeling than lookin' in the eyes
of the girl I love when she's standing in that morning light.

[Pre-Chorus]
I'll never forget that night on 95
Lonestar came on that radio she went wild.

[Chorus]
Saying "I wanna sing like a country star
there's just something 'bout that southern draw
that's got me wishing we were living where my favorite trees are
down south out of town.
Where I can be the girl you can't live without.
We'll build a life that you write about
In those songs you sing while you're tuggin' on strings connected to this old heart
I wanna sing like a country star."

[Bridge]
It's a thousand miles away
I can't wait to see your face
Where you can lay beside me
beneath these weeping willow trees
and all the stories we will tell
to our children and ourselves
about these man made memories
when this was just a dream

[Chorus]
And you were singing like a country star
There's just something 'bout that southern draw
that's got me wishing we were living where your favorite trees are
down south out of town.
Where you can be the girl I can't live without.
We'll build a life that I write about
in those songs I sing while I'm tuggin' on strings connected to your old heart
I wanna sing like a country star.

[Outro}
I wanna sing like a country star x2
