Kenny Chesney – Down the Road Lyrics

SHARE
[Intro] When I was a boy

[Verse 1] Four houses down from me
Was a family with an only child
She was the only girl
In this whole world that could make me smile

[Chorus] Down the road
I made up reasons to go
Down the road

[Verse 2] Somewhere inside of me
There was something she took a liking to
And I asked her to marry me
She said she really wanted to

[Chorus] Down the road
To see what life’s gonna hold
Down the road

[Verse 3] Her momma wants to know
If I’m washed in the blood or just in the water
Her daddy wants to know
If I make enough to take his daughter

[Chorus] Down the road
Before he can let her go
Down the road

[Verse 4] Now down the street from here
There’s an engineer with an only son
And our baby girl says
She believes that he is the only one

[Bridge] Down the road

[Verse 5] Her momma wants to know
Is he washed in the blood or just in the water
And I wanna know
That he makes enough to take my daughter

[Chorus][x2] Down the road
Before he can let her go
Down the road

[Outro] Down, down, down that road
Down, down, down that road
