Sippin on sweet tea out here working…
HES FINALLY GOINGBACK TO HIS OLD STYLE!!! Lets face it, it style never really did change, just kinda shifted with the times, but this song. I can clos my eyes and I’m 4 years old again sitting in the middle seat of my dad’s red truck. The red leather is burning the skin off my legs, but I gottat keep my feel still so I don’t kick the truck out of gear.
I love this song because of how it feels. And I love this song for the lyrics.
