Real Gone Lyrics

I'm American made, Bud Light, Chevrolet
My momma taught me wrong from right
I was born in the south
Sometimes I have a big mouth
When I see something that I don't like
I gotta say it

We been driving this road
For a mightly long time
Payin' no mind to the signs
Well this neighborhood's changed
It's all been rearranged
We left that change somewhere behind

Slow down, you're gonna crash
Baby you were screamin'
It's a blast, blast, blast
Look out babe you got your blinders on
Everybody's lookin' for a way
To get real gone, real gone
Real Gone

There's a new cat in town
He's got high paid friends
Thinks he's gonna change history
You think you know him so well
Yeah you think he's so swell
But he's just perpetuatin' prophecy

Come on now

Slow down, you're gonna crash
Baby you were screamin'
It's a blast, blast, blast
Look out, you got your blinders on
Everybody's lookin' for a way
To get real gone
Real gone
Real gone
Real gone Well, you can say what you want
But you can't say it 'round here
'Cause they'll catch you and give you a whippin'
Well I belive I was right
When I said you were wrong
You didn't like the sound of that
Now did ya?

Slow down, you're gonna crash
Baby you were screamin'
It's a blast, blast, blast
Look out, you got your blinders on
Everybody's lookin' for a way
To get real gone

Well here I come, And I'm so not scared
Got my pedal to the metal
Got my hands in the air
Well look out, you take your blinders off
Everybody's lookin' for a way
To get real gone, real gone

Real Gone

Real Gone

Real Gone

Thoughts & Meanings

I came here looking for a meaning, but I may have one myself. The first paragraph doesn't need much explanation - a Southern girl "introducing" herself. "We've been driving this road / for a mighty long time / payin no mind to the signs" sounds like it's describing a relationship that "breaks the rules" so to speak, like Hunter Hayes' "I Want Crazy". The chorus supports that theory as well. It sounds like the girl is warning someone to be careful and watch what they're doing before they get in trouble. The next part is easy. It's talking about a new guy in town who's a little too cocky. "You think you know him so well / Yeah you think he's so swell / But he's just perpetuating prophecy" and then the chorus sounds like the girl is warning a friend (or any girl in particular) to stay away from him, because he's a player, like Carrie Underwood's "Good Girl". The last three lyrics of the next seem to be an "I told you so" to the girl who fell for him. I'm not sure about the rest but hopefully this helps!
