Friday night out in the sticks with a 24 and a 26, bored as shit. Wonder if that truck'll run - it's been sitting here since Dad's been gone from the farm.
When we'd get tired of driving grids, shooting signs, hitting the ditch, we'd head on in. Teenage cowboys on the town, all diesel fumes and whiskey proud - hello, darling.
They all know I am just like my old man. No plates.
Found a brand new life on that Dewdney strip when I was just sixteen, well, the girls I was with looked older. These days, I wear my Dad's old clothes and drink in his old watering holes. They all know.
You'd better be tough if you're gonna be dumb.
