Brandon Lay’s “Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers” Lyrics:
You had a bluejean jacket, varsity / Said you wanna go somewhere fast with me / I picked you up, yeah / And we turned it up / You had a broke heart necklace, post-game smile / J-town front page news for awhile / Then we broke up, but I still turned it up.
Cheerleading skirts and backseats / Free throws and church marquees / Kingsley countdown radio / Wouldn’t know nothing if it weren’t for all those …
Long nights, glory days / Between the Alpines and old King James / The better they look the sweeter they kiss / The shot you don’t take, the shot you don’t miss / The faster the car the more money you burn / You laugh, you love, you learn there’s a lot to learn from speakers and bleachers and preachers / Story of my youth / Speakers and bleachers and preachers / Still got a lot of growing up to do.
Kroger parking lot, battle scars / Black and mild on the dash under the stars / If daddy asks they ain’t mine / 82 degrees on the bank sign / And hey, hey summer jams / Any Chesney song gonna make her dance / When the sun goes down, I think about her now.
Subs from my system rattling my rearview, used to listen with my cousin I miss, he’s gone now / It was the national anthem and a knee-down prayer we were acting like we weren’t just like every other small town.
