Drill Here, Drill Now

Drill Here, Drill Now

Aaron Tippin

Hello, well, is anybody out there listenin' in Washington DC?
This is the sufferin' voice of America, cryin' out for relief
Now I don't know what a gallon of gas costs up on capitol hill
But we sure know what it cost down here in reality-ville

And the damage already done has been a mighty heavy toll
And if we're gonna fix it, we gotta start right here at home

Drill here, drill now
How 'bout some oil from our own soil that belongs to us anyhow?
Ain't no more debatin', we're tired of waitin', everybody shout out loud
Drill here, drill now

Every time a foreign tanker pulls up to our shore
They got us over a barrel while they bleed us a little more, oh
And think how much it costs just to bring it all that way
And how many American jobs that'd make if we were drillin' in the USA

Oh, and God forbid if our oily friends should decide to cut us off
We'd be standin' around with our britches down, here listen to me y'all

Drill here, drill now
How 'bout some oil from our own soil that belongs to us anyhow?
No more debatin', we're tired of waitin', everybody shout out loud
Drill here, drill now, do somethin'

Well, the winds of change are blowin', yes and we recognize that need
But tractors, trucks, and cars and planes can't run on tomorrow's dreams
So while we're workin' on the future, we can't ignore today
'Cause who knows how much time the alternative might take

Yeah, somethin's gotta be done right now, 'cause friends it won't be long
Before this great big country comes grindin' to a halt

Drill here, drill now
How 'bout some oil from our own soil that belongs to us anyhow?
No more debatin', we're tired of waitin', everybody shout out loud
Drill here, drill now, yeah, drill here and drill now
Drill here and drill now, drill here and drill now
Drill here and drill now, drill here and drill now
Drill here and drill now
