The Song of Summer

This is the song of summer. Epic. Barefoot Blue Jean Night (Jake Owen)



Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


A full moon shinin' bright
Edge of the water; we were feelin' alright
Back down a country road
The girls are always hot, and the beer is ice cold

Cadillac, horns on the hood
My buddy Frankie had his dad hook him up good
Girls smile when we roll by
They hop in the back, and we cruise to the river side

Chorus
(Whoa-oh)
Never gonna grow up
(Whoa-oh)
Never gonna slow down
(Whoa-oh)
We were shinin' like lighters in the dark
In the middle of a rock show
(Whoa-oh)
We were doin' it right
(Whoa-oh)
We were comin' alive
(Whoa-oh)
Yeah, caught up in a Southern summer, barefoot, blue jean night

Blue eyes and auburn hair
Sittin' lookin' pretty by the fire in a lawn chair
New to town, and new to me
Her ruby red lips was sippin' on sweet tea
Shot me in love like a shootin' star
So, I grabbed a beer and my ol' guitar
Then we sat around till the break of dawn
Howlin' and singin' our favorite song

Chorus

Whoa-oh, never gonna grow up
Ha!
Never gonna slow down
We were shinin' like lighters in the dark
In the middle of a rock show
(Whoa-oh)
We were doin' it right
(Whoa-oh)
We were comin' alive
(Whoa-oh)
Yeah, caught up in a Southern summer, barefoot, blue jean night

(Whoa-oh)
Barefoot, blue jean night
(Whoa-oh)
Barefoot, blue jean night
(Whoa-oh)

(I can't decided if I like this song because it's catchy or if it's because I'm hick at heart)
(definition of 'hick' = adjective - located in a rural or culturally unsophisticated area: a hick town)
