She was raised up in Jersey
I said oh Lord have mercy
Never seen a one light town 'til she moved down here
She said I'm so bored out of my mind
Need a Starbucks and a WiFi
Or a jet airliner to fly me anywhere
I said do you wanna take a drive in my truck
Don't pay no mind to that twelve point buck
Laid across my hood, you ever been to

Rome Georgia
Picked peaches off the trees
Climbed the water tower in Paris Tennessee
Been to Florence Alabama
Drank Muscadine wine
Just give me a chance to change your mind
So before you go and fly away girl
Let me show you 'round a country boy's world

Somewhere between there on a dirt road
When I rolled down my window
She smelled wildflowers on the summer wind
Just a bite of home-made ice cream
And a glass of Momma's sweet tea
This old holler's got a way of making friends
She'd never seen a glowing field of fireflies
Or the twinkle of a star in a southern sky
She fell in love, we went down to

Rome Georgia
Picked peaches off the trees
Climbed the water tower in Paris Tennessee
Went to Florence Alabama
Drank Muscadine wine
She gave me a chance and I made her mine
Says she'll never fly away and she's my girl
It's 'cause I showed her 'round a country boy's world

Ooh now she's riding shotgun
Saying baby let's run wild
And go down to

Rome Georgia
Pick peaches off the trees
Climb the water tower in Paris Tennessee
Go to Florence Alabama
Drink Muscadine wine
She gave me a chance and I made her mine
Says she'll never fly away and she's my girl
It's 'cause I showed her 'round a country boy's world
