Lyrics

End State Maintenance

Written By: Sara B. Taylor

End State Maintenance

Cruisin’ Rural Route 1 in the ’85 Ford
Sittin’ at home, lordy we were bored
Loaded up with beer and smokes
My city friends gonna learn the farm girl ropes

Gripping the wheel and hittin’ the gas
This ‘ole truck has seen some laughs
Shiftin’ into high gear, trying to show off
Stirrin’ up dust and makin’ you cough

Chorus:
The fun doesn’t start ‘til we see the dirt road
Means the pavement is gone and we might get stuck
Just find a clearing and back in the truck
Cause we’ve hit End State Maintenance, End State Maintenance

Put the tailgate down and cut the lights
Get ready for some wild, country nights
Crank the radio and belt the tunes
The farmers must think we’re loons

Makin’ out ‘til early dawn
Bonfire blowing smoke up and gone
Hot kisses behind the giant poplar tree
Hear that cricket chirp – where is he?

Chorus:
The fun doesn’t start ‘til we see the dirt road
Means the pavement is gone and we might get stuck
Just find a clearing and back in the truck
Cause we’ve hit End State Maintenance, End State Maintenance

As the rooster crows we fire up the Ford
Let them be sleeping, please Lord!
Creep back to the house
Pass the porch, quiet as a mouse

The week flies by and we get off work
Those summer breezes begin to lurk
Corn fields again? We all agree
Love the farm and it’s where we need to be

Chorus:
The fun doesn’t start ‘til we see the dirt road
Means the pavement is gone and we might get stuck
Just find a clearing and back in the truck
Cause we’ve hit End State Maintenance, End State Maintenance

Head on down to our usual spot
Instead we find a vacant lot
Some builder just signed a big contract
Time to find a new party pact

Cause we’ve hit End State Maintenance, End State Maintenance
