It was a hot June morning on the interstate
She was flaggin' me down, I was 20 mintues late
She was broke down, north bound, Georgia line
I pulled on the shoulder and offered her a ride
With just one look, it was heart and soul
We were like a river runnin' out of control

When the Tennessee river hits the Nickajack Dam
Up come the water over Nickajack land
Like a top on a bottle when it's ready to blow
Love is gonna take ya where it wants you to go
When you buckle 'er down til she's beggin' to break
Well a Tennessee River will make a Nickajack Lake

We spent a week together in the next two nights
It was a barn burnin', nothin' ever felt so right
Before we both knew it we were makin' some plans
Seein' rings on our fingers, on both of our hands
Daddy said I was crazy, mommas both cried
But you gotta tell the world when you feel it inside

When the Tennessee river hits the Nickajack Dam
Up come the water over Nickajack land
Like a top on a bottle when it's ready to blow
Love is gonna take ya where it wants you to go
When you buckle 'er down til she's beggin' to break
Well a Tennessee River will make a Nickajack Lake

Now we got a cabin with a window veiw
Of the water and the woods and the ol' dam too
We got a lay away cradle her jeans are gettin' tight
I guess lovin' makes livin', and livin' makes life
I know how it is now's the way it should
Cause I look outside, and what do I see

When the Tennessee river hits the Nickajack Dam
Up come the water over Nickajack land
Like a top on a bottle when it's ready to blow
Love is gonna take ya where it wants you to go
When you buckle 'er down til she's beggin' to break
Well a Tennessee River will make a Nickajack Lake

When the Tennessee river hits the Nickajack Dam
Up come the water over Nickajack land
Like a top on a bottle when it's ready to blow
Love is gonna take ya where it wants you to go
When you buckle 'er down til she's beggin' to break
Well a Tennessee River will make a Nickajack Lake
