English Lyrics 

I was raised off of Rural Route 3
Out past where the blacktop ends

We’d walked to church on Sunday morning
Race barefoot back to the Johnson’s fence
That’s where I first saw Mary

On that roadside pickin’ blackberries
That summer I turned a corner in my soul
Down that red dirt road

It’s where I drank my first beer
It’s where I found Jesus
Where I wrecked my first car

I tore it all to pieces
I learned the path to heaven is full of sinners and believers

Learned that happiness on earth ain’t just for high achievers
I’ve learned I’ve come to know

There’s life at both ends
Of that red dirt road

Her daddy didn’t like me much
With my shackled up GTO
I’d sneak out in the middle of the night

Throw rocks at her bedroom window
We’d turn out the headlights
Drive by the moonlight

Talk about what the future might hold
Down a red dirt road

I went out into the world, and I came back in
I lost Mary, oh I got her back again
And driving home tonight feels like I’ve found a long lost friend
