Put Some Drive in Your Country

Travis Tritt

Lyrics

Well, I was raised on country classics

Like Roy Acuff and George Jones

Lord, I loved to hear 'em

Sing all them old time country songs

But I really got excited 'bout the time I turned fifteen

That's the first time I heard Waylon and old Bocephus sing

They put some drive in their country

That really turned me on

Yeah, put some drive in your country

Keep country drivin' on

When the music gets you movin'

You know that can't be wrong

Every time I hear that outlaw stuff on my car radio

It makes me want to drive it just as fast as it will go

Put some drive in your country

Let's keep country drivin' on

We played some shows in Atlanta

On Sunday afternoons

The gigs were packed and I was nervous

'Cause I wanted folks to like my tunes

The crowds were full of younger people, they were all about my age

So I turned and told the band just before we walked on stage

"Put some drive in your country, fellas"

We turned those people on, aw, yes, we did

Yeah, put some drive in your country

Keep country drivin' on

When the music gets you dancin'

You know that can't be wrong

See, I made myself a promise when I was just a kid

I'd mix southern rock and country and that's just what I did

Put some drive in the country

Keep country drivin' on, yeah

Hey

Put some drive in your country

Hey, let's keep country drivin' on

When the music gets you movin'

You know that can't be wrong

I still love old country, I ain't tryin' to put it down

But damn, I miss Duanne Allman, I wish he was still around

Put some drive in the country

Keep country drivin' on, yeah

Put some drive in the country

Yeah, let's keep country drivin' on, yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Alright
