Cold Tequila

We drank
cold tequila
on a simmering summer night

We went
skinny dipping in the river
under stars a-shining bright

We lost
innocence and inexperience
just trying to get it right

Desperate youth
and cold tequila
on an endless summer night

I saw you in the parking lot
of the Town & Country store
Riding shotgun with your girlfriends
in a dusty, rusty Ford

Your hair was blowing out the window
Your smile an acre wide
I chased you down to invite you all
to go swimming with us that night

We drank
cold tequila
on a simmering summer night

We went
skinny dipping in the river
under stars a-shining bright

We lost
innocence and inexperience
just trying to get it right

Desperate youth
and cold tequila
On an endless summer night

You showed up close to twilight
with cold tequila and warm beer
We listened to No Fences
And we hollered and we cheered

Billy built a bonfire
Right on the pebbly shore
The reflection in your eyes
Left me hoping for a kiss or more

When you handed me the bottle
and said that you was having fun
I knew you’d be my only girl
Until our days were done

We drank
cold tequila
on a simmering summer night

We went
skinny dipping in the river
under stars a-shining bright

We lost
innocence and inexperience
just trying to get it right

Desperate youth
and cold tequila
on an endless summer night

The night it ended far too soon
It was time to get on home
As you piled into your pickup
Said I’d call you on the phone

Watched your taillights as they disappeared
down the dark two-laned highway
I could taste your lip gloss just a bit
And my memories replayed us

drinking

cold tequila
on a simmering summer night

skinny dipping in the river
under stars a-shining bright

losing

innocence and inexperience
just trying to get it right

Desperate youth

Cold tequila

Long gone summer nights

Cold Tequila
