Body Like a Back Road Lyrics

Got a girl from the Southside
Got braids in her hair
First time I seen her walk by
Man I ’bout fell up out my chair
Had to get her number
It took me like six weeks
Now me and her go way back
Like Cadillac seats
Body like a back road
Drivin’ with my eyes closed
I know every curve like the back of my hand
Doin’ 15 in a 30
I ain’t in no hurry
I’ma take it slow just as fast as I can
The way she fit in them blue jeans
She don’t need no belt
But I can turn ’em inside out
I don’t need no help
Got hips like honey
So thick and so sweet (Man)
Ain’t no curves like hers
On them downtown streets
Body like a back road
Drivin’ with my eyes closed
I know every curve like the back of my hand
Doin’ 15 in a 30
I ain’t in no hurry
I’ma take it slow just as fast as I can
We’re out here in the boondocks
With the breeze and the birds
Tangled up in the tall grass
With my lips on hers
On a highway to heaven
Headed south of her smile
Get there when we get there
Every inch is a mile
Body like a back road
Drivin’ with my eyes closed
I know every curve like the back of my hand
Doin’ 15 in a 30
I ain’t in no hurry
I’ma take it slow just as fast as I can
I’ma take it slow
Just as fast I can (Body like a back road)
(Drivin’ with my eyes closed)
Got braids in her hair (I know every curve like the back of my hand)

Hunt at the time was on his 15 In A 30 Tour with special guests Maren MorrisChris Janson, and Ryan Follese.  Share the Sam Hunt Body Like A Back Road Song with other country music fans.
