The Church On Cumberland Road    (1988)

Just about a mile off-a 109
There's a little church sittin' back in the pines
I promised that girl she was gonna be mine
I wouldn't be surprised if she was standin' there cryin'

Oh-oh, I didn't know a bored-out Ford could go so slow
Oh-oh, you got to put your foot down on the floor
Yeah, we been rocking all night, now, don't you know
You gotta get me to the church on the Cumberland road

Billy's passed out in the back board, I think he's alive
Bobby's got his head hangin' over the side
Here we are doin' only ninety-five
What's the matter with you, man? I thought you said you could drive!

Oh-oh, I didn't know a bored-out Ford could go so slow
Oh-oh, you got to put your foot down on the floor
Yeah, we been rocking all night, now, don't you know
You gotta get me to the church on the Cumberland road

Sweeter than the dew on a honeysuckle vine
Warmer than noon on the Fourth of July
Cutest little girl that I ever have known
Waitin' at the church on the Cumberland Road

Oh-oh, I didn't know a bored-out Ford could go so slow
Oh-oh, you got to put your foot down on the floor
'Cause, we been rocking all night, now, don't you know
You gotta get me to the church on the Cumberland road

We been rocking all night, now, don't you know
You gotta get me to the church on the Cumberland road
