Verse 1:
I was raised off of Rural Route 3, Out past where the blacktop ends,
We'd walked to church on Sunday mornin', Race barefoot back to 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.

Chorus:
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.

Verse 2:
Her daddy didn't like me much, With my shackled up GTO,
I'd sneak out in the middle of the night'n throw rocks at her bedroom window,
We'd turn out the headlights, Drive by the moonlight,
Talk about what the future might hold... Down that red dirt road.

Chorus:
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.

(Short Guitar Solo)

Verse 3:
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.

Chorus:
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.
