I didn't say we wouldn't hurt anymore
That's how you learn: you just get burned
But we don't have to feel like dirt anymore
Though love's not earned; baby, it's our turn
We were always looking for true north
With our heads in the clouds, just a little off course
I left the motor running
Now, if you're feeling down and out...

Come on, baby, drive south with the one you love
Come on, baby, drive south with the one you love

I'm not talkin' 'bout retreatin', little girl
Gonna take our stand in this Chevy van
Window's open on the rest of the world
Holdin' hands all the way to Dixieland
We've been tryin' to turn our lives around
Since we were little kids, it's been wearin' us down
Don't turn away now, darlin'
Let's fire it up and wind it out

Come on, baby, drive south with the one you love
Come on, baby, drive south with the one you love

I heard your mama callin', I think she was just stallin'
Don't know who she was talkin' to; baby, me and you
We could go down with a smile on; don't bother to pack your nylons
Just keep them pretty legs showin' - it gets hot down where we're goin'
We were always looking for true north
With our heads in the clouds, just a little off course
I left the motor running
Now, if you're feeling down and out

Come on, baby, drive; come on, baby, drive south; come on, baby, drive south
Come on, baby, drive south with the one you love
Come on, baby, drive south with the one you love
