Talladega Lyrics

It was the summer before the real world started and
The deal was we would get to go, if we
Cleaned it up, and got it running
Daddy's old Winnebago and
Wing and a prayer down 65
Five best friends on four bald tires
I can still see Billy smiling, when we finally made it

To Talladega
Boys, raise the whiskey in your glass
Here's to turning up, slowing down
And cars that go real fast
We were laughing and living, drinking and wishing
And thinking as that checkered flag was waving
Sure would like to stay in
Talladega

Like a storm, time rolls on
You can't hit pause as we just did
Most days in life don't stand out
But life's about those days that will, like
Rocking rando, getting rowdy
Shooting roman candles at the man in the moon
Til the Alabama sun was breaking

Over Talladega
Boys, raise the whiskey in your glass
Here's to turning up, slowing down
And cars that go real fast
We were laughing and living, drinking and wishing
And thinking as that checkered flag was waving
Sure would like to stay in
Talladega
Talladega When the winds go cold and it blows October
I think about us shoulder to shoulder
Like those cars my thoughts roll over and over and over
In my mind

Tonight I'm in Talladega
Boys, raise the whiskey in your glass
Here's to turning up, slowing down
And cars that go real fast
We were laughing and living, drinking and wishing
And thinking as that checkered flag was waving
Sure would like to stay in
Talladega

Talladega (Talladega)
Talladega (Talladega)

Thoughts & Meanings

Eric Church is like Bruce Springsteen but country style. His songs are about those blue-collar American roots - though as a Canadian I definitely still relate. This song tells a story about his youth, travelling in an old beat up camper with his friends. You can feel how much he looks back fondly on that time in his life.
