It ain't much different out here i found
It's just different names for the same old hillbilly towns
welcome signs for the shotgun homes
familar faces in the same old rows

With every cafe corner diner
it's the same old story to some old timer
rundown tavern on a dim lit street
I'd see my old friends in everybody i'd meet
The only thing missin' that I can't seem to find
is the girl I left behind

There's been a few that have caught me a little off guard
I try to fool myself but I just can't fool my heart
Every pretty green-eyed girl I see
Gets me further away from where I want to be

Summertime tailgate, road-side stands
sellin' home grown 'matoes and strawberry jam
little white churches and country stores
every town's just like the one before
The only thing missin' that I can't seem to find
is the girl I left behind me

standin' on her momma's front porch
wavin' through the black smoke rollin' outta that old ford
take me to some backwads town
wishin' I had you,
but you're nowhere to be found

With every cafe corner diner
it's the same old story to some old timer
rundown tavern on a dim lit street
I'd see my old friends in everybody i meet

Summertime tailgate, road-side stands
sellin' home grown 'matoes and strawberry jam
little white churches and country stores
every town's just like the one before
The only thing missin' that I can't seem to find
Yeah, The only thing missin' that I can't seem to find
is the girl I left behind
