City Lights
by Tim McGraw



She was like a brand new song on an old guitar
Supernova in a mason jar
Every boy in town wanted to show her around
And as a dirt finch road cuts a king
Beating along this American dream ragged out truck
When she showed up
She had a fire inside her faraway eyes
And I know where just to take her that night

And we got high on top of that bridge
We can see for miles
Pass that corn and the cotton and the river bridge
When the sun went down there she was
Shining like a big old sky full of diamond dust
I'm a cigarette burning slow on a summer night
She's city lights

She's like a broken heart waiting to happen
Shooting stars that fall past try holding on
It's already gone
I searched that radio low and high
Trying to find a song that make a memory
I did alright
We're small town guys
But even in my arms I knew
I never shine as bright as her city lights do

And we got high on top of that bridge
We can see for miles
Pass that corn and the cotton and the river bridge
When the sun went down there she was
Shining like a big old sky full of diamond pearls
I'm a cigarette burning slow on a summer night
She's city lights

We got high on top of that bridge
We can see for miles
Pass that corn and the cotton and the river bridge
When the sun went down
There she was
Shining like a big old sky full of diamond dust
I'm a cigarette burning slow on a summer night
She's city lights

She's city lights

She's my city lights
City lights
She's my city lights
City lights
She's my city lights
City lights
She's my city lights
City lights
