It was the summer before
The real world started and
The deal was we would get to go, if we
Cleaned it up, and got it runnin'
Daddy’s old Winnebago

Wing and a prayer down 65
Five best friends on four bald tires
I can still see Billy smilin'
When we finally made it

To Talladega, boys raised up
Whiskey in your glass
Here’s to turnin' up, slowin' down
And cars that go real fast
We were laughin' and livin'
Drinkin' and wishin'
And thinkin' as that checkered flag was wavin'
Sure would like to stay in
Talladega

Like a storm, time rolls on
You can’t hit pause as we just did
Most days in life don’t stand out
But life’s about those days that will, like
Rocking Randall, getting rowdy
Shooting Roman candles at the man in the moon
'Til the Alabama sun was breakin'

To Talladega, boys raised up
Whiskey in your glass
Here’s to turnin' up, slowin' down
And cars that go real fast
We were laughin' and livin'
Drinkin' and wishin'
And thinkin' as that checkered flag was wavin'
Sure would like to stay in
Talladega
Talledega

When the winds go cold and it blows October
I think about us shoulder to shoulder
Like those cars my thoughts roll over and over and over
In my mind

Tonight, I’m in Talladega, boys raised up
Whiskey in your glass
Here’s to turnin' up, slowin' down
And cars that go real fast
We were laughin' and livin'
Drinkin' and wishin'
And thinkin' as that checkered flag was wavin'
Sure would like to stay in
Talladega
