What Was I Thinkin' - Dierks Bentley

Well, Becky was a beauty from south Alabama.

Her Daddy had a heart like a nine pound hammer.
Think he even did a little time in the slammer.
What was I thinkin\'?

She snuck out one night an\' met me by the front gate,
Her Daddy came out a-wavin\' that 12-guage
We tore out the drive, he peppered my tailgate.
What was I thinkin\'?

Oh, I knew there\'d be hell to pay.
But that crossed my mind a little too late.

\'Cause I was thinkin\' \'bout a little white tank top,
Sittin\' right there in the middle by me.
An\' I was thinkin\' \'bout a long kiss,
Man, just gotta get goin\', where the night might lead.
I know what I was feelin\',
But what was I thinkin\'?
What was I thinkin\'?

By the County line, the cops were nippin\' on our heels,
Pulled off the road an\' kicked it in four-wheel.
Shut off the lights an\' tore through a cornfield.
What was I thinkin\'?

At the other side, she was hollerin\': \"Faster.\"
Took a dirt road, had the radio blastin\'.
Hit the honky-tonk for a little close dancin\'.
What was I thinkin\'?

Oh, I knew there\'d be hell to pay.
But that crossed my mind a little too late.

\'Cause I was thinkin\' \'bout a little white tank top,
Sittin\' right there in the middle by me.
An\' I was thinkin\' \'bout a long kiss,
Man, just gotta get goin\', where the night might lead.
I know what I was feelin\',
But what was I thinkin\'?
What was I thinkin\'?

When a mountain of a man with a \"Born To Kill\" tattoo,
Tried to cut in, I knocked out his front tooth.
We ran outside, hood slidin\' like Bo Duke.
What was I thinkin\'?

I finally got her home at a half past two, later.
Daddy\'s in a lawn chair sittin\' on the driveway,
Put it in park as he started my way.
What was I thinkin\'?
Oh, what was I thinkin\'?
Oh, what was I thinkin\'?

Then she gave a \"Come an\' get me grin.\"
An\' like a bullet, we were gone again.

\'Cause I was thinkin\' \'bout a little white tank top,
Sittin\' right there in the middle by me.
An\' I was thinkin\' \'bout a long kiss,
Man, just gotta get goin\' where the night might lead.
I know what I was feelin\',
But what was I thinkin\'?
What was I thinkin\'?

I know what I was feelin\', but what was I thinkin\'?
