Hey, baby I just asked your daddy 
If I could take your hand
He said, "Boy, over my dead body"
 Guess I ain't his kinda man

But I love you and you love me
So, baby I gotta plan
We'll push my truck off of Red Top Bridge  Right below the Jackson Dam

Hey, they'll be draggin' the river 
Catchin' nothin' but an ol' catfish 
They'll be draggin' the river 
That'll show that son of a bitch 

It's been rainin' for the last two weeks 
So the water's up good and high
We'll just wait 'til it's good n' late
So there ain't nobody passin' by

I'll call my cousin 
He'll pick us up an' take us to the Greyhound Bus
We'll be standin' in front of that preacher 
By the time they're lookin' for us

And they'll be draggin' the river 
But they ain't gonna find a thing 
They'll be draggin' the river 
I'll be wearin' me a diamond ring

Ah, we're gonna show 'em

I know that it might sound crazy 
Just a little bit too extreme 
But to get some of your sweet lovin'
Baby, I'd do anything 

 Sooner or later 
They'll find my letter sayin' that we're alright 
We'll be rockin' at the Red Roof Inn
This time tomorrow night

And they'll be draggin' the river 
Sayin', "Lord, what a cryin' shame"
They'll be draggin' the river 
We'll be runnin', they'll never see it comin'

They'll be draggin' the river 
They'll be draggin' the river 
But they ain't gonna find a thing 

 Sorry about callin' your dad a son of a bitch earlier
Hey, do you think he'll still hire me?
Whoa, that thing's little 
The diamond, I mean
