"Pavement Ends" as written by Jason Saenz and Brent Cobb....
Take me back to the muddy water,
Where the bull and the cow don't bother.
Pick up a girl I know won't holler.
Head out of town, watch the sun go down.
Maybe later we'll call some friends,
Tell 'em meet us where the pavement ends.

I got some fat wood rollin' in a truck bed,
Fine pine, that's what she said,
I found it in the forest where the kindling's strong.
It burns real hot, but it don't last long.
Just 'cause I got her warm don't mean I'll see skin.
But I'm going to start a fire where the pavement ends.

You can get you a buzz, blame it on the radio.
Find a lighter, live a little high.
Take it all in, let the good times roll.
And on a clear night,
Who needs the headlights?
Drop it in low, drive by the moonlight.
Out here the world don't spin,
Everything stops where the pavement ends.

Drop me off on home grown red clay,
Where the deer and the possum do play.
Turn off the phone, it's never too late to
Cast a line catch a piece of mind.
Life's too fast to run my friend,
Slow it on down where the pavement ends.

You can get you a buzz, blame it on the radio.
Find a lighter, live a little high.
Take it all in, let the good times roll.
And on a clear night,
Who needs the headlights?
Drop it in low, drive by the moonlight.
Out here the world don't spin,
Everything stops where the pavement ends.

You can get you a buzz, blame it on the radio.
Find a lighter, live a little high.
Take it all in, let the good times roll.
And on a clear night,
Who needs the headlights?
Drop it in low, drive by the moonlight.
Out here the world don't spin,
Everything stops where the pavement ends.
Everything stops where the pavement ends.

    My InterpretationI think that this song is about not caring and having fun. Instead of going in all general, I'll break it down verse by verse.
    The first verse refers to him picking up a girl in the country side that wont scream when they get down to business. The last two lines refer to him being spontaneous, like maybe I'll do something, maybe not.
    The second verse is basically a dirty joke. He has a big dick (fat pine) and when he sleeps with someone, it's short and intense (it burns real hot but it don't last long). The last part means that even if he turns her on, there's no guaranty that she will sleep with him, but he will try "where the pavement ends" anyway.

    The refrain is about getting high. They find a lighter and take it all in, possibly from a bong. Then they have fun. This includes living the dangerous life, so driving in the dark without headlights. I interpret the line "Everything stops where the pavement ends" so that when they go out into the country, where there are no paved roads, the world stands still, in the sense that they can't see time passing.

    The third verse refers to going home to the country side, and living without electronics or means to keeping time and contact with the rest of the world, e.g. the phone. They say that life is too fast to run, meaning that you have to stay where you are and settle in, but slow it down. I think this is again pointing towards smoking weed, because time perception is distorted when high and everything seems to go slower.

    I'm not saying that this is what the song means, but it's how I interpret it. I think that this would make sense, and please excuse any spelling mistakes. Not all of us are English speakers!
