I remember the summer I turned sixteen, And that old jalopy Daddy gave to me, It had holes in the floor and just a 305 But I didn't care 'cause I could finally drive. There wasn't much to do in my home town, So every weekend night, we would all go down
[CHORUS] There were freaks and hippies in my high school; Football players all tryin' to be cool. And everybody scramblin' to hide their beer' When the cops drove by till the coast was clear.
Kids fallin' in and out of love, On the hoods of Chevys, in the beds of trucks We were stumblin' our way through life 'til our senior year, But man we sure did learn a lot in that Wal-Mart parking lot.
She had long blonde hair and sea-green eyes; The most beautiful thing I'd ever seen in my life. But I was young and dumb and didn't have a line,
And all I could say was can i call 'ya sometime? She just said no and walked away, But she just said no and walked away, And that was the first time I felt my heart break.
Yeah, we all did alot of livin'. It was small-town teenage heaven.
Well, I had my first kiss, my first love, Got my ass kicked but I got back up. Lost my way, found it again, Had one long buzz and a dozen best friends
In that Wal-Mart parking lot. In that Wal-Mart parking lot.
