lyrics

Down on the field
It's fourteen to three and the lights look surreal
Dozens of shadows stalk each back on the line

Last year flew by
Now you're looking to leave and give Indy a try
A small streets girl dreamed of wide streets all of her life.

If I run home
Get in the car and just leave you alone
A tear in my eye and my back to the stadium lights

It's not the way
It's not like you'd cry or you'd beg me to stay
Thank you so much for a typical Saturday night.

An old Ford Ranger
Twisting down a winding road
Chasing silence
Don't make a sound, don't let me know
I'll be here for the night
And I'll go
I'll go if you want me to go if you want me to go.

So why be right
A Formica top table and red stained bar light
A cup of sweet coffee and you're blowing smoke in my tea

I hoped you'd ask
Over that burger you'd drop your damn mask
“O won't you come with me, bust out of this town and be free?”

An old Ford Ranger
Twisting down a winding road
Chasing silence
Don't make a sound, don't let me know
I'll be here for the night
And I'll go
I'll go if you want me to go if you want me to go.

I'll be here
The second best thing in your runner up year
Won't you roll down that damn window and get me some air

The river flows
Let's follow the Wabash and see where it goes
If only you'd ask me I'm sure I could manage, I swear...

An old Ford Ranger
Twisting down a winding road
Chasing silence
Don't make a sound, don't let me know
I'll be here for the night
And I'll go
I'll go if you want me to go if you want me to go.

So what's it worth?
A babe at our feet and fire in our hearth
I'll go if you want me to go if you want me to go.
