Dierks Bentley — What Was I Thinkin' lyrics

Becky was a beauty from South Alabama
Her daddy had a heart like a nine-pound hammer
Think he even did a little time in the slammer
What was I thinkin'?
She snuck out one night, met me by the front gate
Her daddy came out wavin' that 12 gauge
We tore out the drive, he peppered my tail gate
What was I thinkin'?
Oh, I knew there'd be hell to pay
But that crossed my mind a little too late

Cause I was thinkin' 'bout a little white tank top sittin' right there in the middle by me
I was thinkin 'bout a long kiss, man, just gotta get goin' where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin'
But what was I thinkin'?
What was I thinkin'?

By the county line the cops are nippin' on our heels
Pulled of the road, and kicked it in 4-wheel
Shut off the lights and tore through a corn field
What was I thinkin'?
Out the other side she was hollerin' "faster"
Took the dirt road, had the radio blastin'
Hit the hokney tonk for a little close dancin'
What was I thinkin'?
Oh, I knew there'd be hell to pay
But that crossed my mind a little too late

Cause I was thinkin' ;bout a little white tank top sittin' right there in the middle by me,
I was thinkin' 'bout a long kiss, man, just gotta get goin' where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin'
But what was I thinkin'?

When the mountain of a man with a Born to Kill tattoo
Tried to cut in, I knocked out his front tooth
We ran outside, hood-slidin' like Beau Duke
What was I thinkin'?
I finally got her home at a half past too late
Her daddy's in a lawn chair sittin' in the driveway
Put it in park as he started my way
What was I thinkin'?
Oh what was I thinkin'?
Oh what was I thinkin'?
Then she gave a come-and-get-me grin
And like a bullet we were gone again!

'Cause I was thinkin' 'bout a little white tank top sittin' right there in the middle by me,
I was thinkin' 'bout a long kiss, man, just gotta get goin' where the night might lead
I know what I was feelin', yeah, I know what I was feelin',
But what was I thinkin'?
What was I thinkin'?

I know what I was feelin'
What was I thinkin'?
Guess I was thinkin' bout that tank top
And those cut-offs...
