"Highway 20 Ride" as written by and Zachry Brown Wyatt Durrette....
I ride east every other Friday but if I had it my way
Days would not be wasted on this drive
And I want so bad to hold you
Some of the things I haven't told you
Your mom and me just couldn't get along

So I'll drive
And I'll think about my life
And wonder why, I'll slowly die inside
Every time I turn that truck around, right at the Georgia line
And I count the days and the miles back home to you on that Highway 20 ride

A day might come and you'll realize that if you could see through my eyes
There was no other way to work it out
And a part of you might hate me
But son please don´t mistake me For a man that didn't care at all

So I'll drive
And I'll think about my life
And wonder why, I'll slowly die inside
Every time I turn that truck around, right at the Georgia line
And I count the days and the miles back home to you on that Highway 20 ride

So when you drive
And the years go flying by
I hope you smile
If I ever cross your mind
It was a pleasure of my life
And I cherished every time
And my whole world
It begins and ends with you
On that Highway 20 ride

    General CommentThe dad never wanted for things to end up the way they did and he doesnt want his son thinking that he didnt want to be there for him. So he drives EVERY weekend to see him just to prove to him how much he loves him. It is a very sweet song. Reminds me of my choldhood.

    General CommentI can't sit here and say I don't love my dad. But our relationship is far from idea. We talk maybe once a month and see each other a few times a year. And quite frankly when we do see each other it is kind of awkward. Certainly not even any close to he relationship I see my friends have with their fathers.

    General CommentA great song about Zac's split-up family and his dad having to drive to visit him afterward.
    The first part of the song, I believe, is Zac singing as if he's his father. That's why it's "I'll drive" and "your mom and me." The last verse is Zac telling his dad that it's okay; he has nothing against his dad at all for what happened. In the video, it shows Zac hugging his dad after the last verse, so I think that's the gist of things.

    Anyway, Zac has some impressive vocals and seems to have a never-ending series of great songs coming out. Much respect

    Lyric Correctionat the beginning it doesnt say "Some of the things I haven't told you" it's "Son there's things I haven't told you" but anyway i have to say this is just a gorgeous song and Zac Brown just keeps em coming

    My InterpretationSeems to me like it's coming from two points of view; the father and the son, as if they're both singing parts of it. For example, seems like it's the boy saying he "rides" east every other Friday and he thinks that's a waste of days. But then the father says, "So I'll drive...." I think the first verse is both of them, then chorus is both of them, then the third verse is just the father and the last verse is just the son. It's like a sad conversation.

    General CommentI see this as kind of a sad song. About growing up without your father around and having only your mother there for some of the most important moments in your life. Something I can relate to all too well.
