Drive-By Truckers

Drive-By Truckers are an alternative country/Southern rock band based in Athens, Georgia, though two out of five current members (Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley) are originally from The Shoals region of Northern Alabama, and the band strongly identifies with Alabama. Their music uses three guitars as well as bass, drums, and now keyboards. Like many alternative country acts, the Drive-By Truckers record in analog (using 2 inch, 16-track open reel tape recorders). However, unlike the majority of their contemporaries, the Drive-By Truckers have consistently pushed their labels to also release the band's records in a vinyl format. more »

When I saw her standing there, with her bright eyes and shining hair
She was looking back at me
Some are meant to sing, some are meant to talk and some aren't meant to say a thing
But when she opened up her mouth and that sweet voice came out 
I lost track of my own name 

[ Chorus ]
Now she's found herself, and I lost mine 
And I'm just another guy who can't give her anything

Well the drifter, 
He holds on to his youth just like it was money in the bank
And Lord knows, I can't change
Sounds better in the song 
Than it does with hell to pay 

I might as well of slipped that ring on your finger from a window of a van 
As it drove away

[ Chorus ]

Dreams are given to you when you're young enough to dream them 
Before they can do you any harm
They don't start to hurt, until you try to hold on to them after seeing what they really are 
She used to dream them with me, every single crazy one
Until they started hurting her too, now she's got some of her own 
And outgrowing me, might be the best thing for her she's ever done

A light that shines as bright as hers can't be kept in the shadows for too long
A heart that wants to live and a soul that wants to give 
Can't just sit at home alone
Lord, she's give me everything and never wanted anything I couldn't give 
Just what was inside of me

[ Chorus ]
