What Was I Thinkin'

What Was I Thinkin'

Dierks Bentley

Becky was a beauty from south Alabama
Her daddy had a heart like a nine pound hammer
Think he even did a little time in the slammer
What was I thinkin'?

She snuck out one night and met me by the front gate
Her daddy came out a wavin' that twelve gauge
We tore out the drive, he peppered my tailgate
What was I thinkin'?

Oh I knew there'd be hell to pay
But that crossed my mind a little too late

'Cause I was thinkin' bout a little white tank top
Sittin' right there in the middle by me
I was thinkin' bout a long kiss,
Man just gotta get goin' where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin', but what was I thinkin'?

By the county line the cops were nippin' on our heels
Pulled off the road and kicked it in four wheel
Shut off the lights, we tore through a cornfield
What was I thinkin'?
Out the other side she was hollerin' "Faster!"
Took a dirt road, had the radio blastin'
Hit the honky tonk for a little close dancin'
What was I thinkin'?

Oh I knew there'd be hell to pay,
But that crossed my mind a little too late

'Cause I was thinkin' bout a little white tank top
Sittin right there in the middle by me,
I was thinkin' bout a long kiss
Man just gotta get goin' where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin', but what was I thinkin'?

When a mountain of a man with a "Born to Kill" tatoo
Tried to cut in, I knocked out his front tooth
We ran outside hood-slidin' like Bo Duke
What was I thinkin'?

I finally got her home at a half-past too late
Her daddy's in a lawn chair, sittin' on the driveway
Put it in park as he started my way
What was I thinkin'?
Oh what was I thinkin'?
Oh what was I thinkin'?
Then she gave a come-an-get-me grin,
And like a bullet we were gone again

'Cause I was thinkin' bout a little white tank top
Sittin' right there in the middle by me
I was thinkin' bout a long kiss
Man just gotta get goin' where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin'
Hey I know what I was feelin'
But what was I thinkin'?

I know what I was feelin'
What was I thinkin'
