You know the lights of my hometown
They come alive when the sun goes down

We got the fifty yard line on a Friday night
Main Street drag lined up with red tail lights
Yeah, the dashboard glow from the radio
Get the console back, pull your girl real close

Got the summer stars out in the backwoods
Got the windows down, make you feel so good
To lock your high beams in on a mud hole
If you're where I'm from, then you damn sure know

About the lights of my hometown
Yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down
Talkin' about the lights of my hometown
Yeah they come alive when the sun goes down

We hold our lighters up, if it's a good song
Little Lynyrd Skynyrd gotcha singin' along
Pour some gasoline on a pile of wood
Just a little too much will make it burn real good

We got the moonshine, I'm talkin' both kinds
Have you seen baby staring at them tanlines
Yeah, we're throwin' down until the cops come
When the blue lights flash, boys it's time to run

You know the lights of my hometown
Yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down
Talkin' about the lights of my hometown
Yeah they come alive when the sun goes down
When the sun goes down,
When the sun goes down

Light a flashlight on a gravestone
Let your best friend know that he ain't alone
Go on and pop a top, pour a little out
Just to let him know we're still thinkin' about him

And lights of our hometown
He almost comes alive when the sun goes down
I'm talkin' about the lights of our hometown
He almost comes alive when the sun goes down
Talkin' about the lights of my hometown
Yeah, they come alive when the sun goes down
Talkin' about the lights of my hometown
Yeah, they come alive, yeah they come alive when the sun goes down

When the sun goes down
Oh yeah when the sun goes down
Yeah we got the fifty yard line on a Friday night
Main Street drag lined up with red tail lights
Yeah yeah we hold the lighters up
We hold the lighters up
Yeah we hold the lighters up when the sun goes down
Let me see them lighters

Talkin' about the lights of my hometown
They come around, yeah they come around
When the sun goes down
