NAME THAT TUNE
Easy one today, but heard it at least twice last night during Salem’s twinbill.
Well if you wanna drink
Go on baby, just do your thing
But give up your keys
Hell, why drive when you can stay with me?
And then after while we’ll sneak away from the bonfire
Walk by the moonlight and down to the riverside
Gotcha sippin’ on the moonshine
Baby, if you’re in mood and you can settle for a one night rodeo
If you can be my tan-legged Juliet
I’ll be your Redneck Romeo…
