about

There's nothing better than going for a drive in a fast car with someone you love. Summertime never felt so good.

lyrics

Overdrive
© 2013 Jef Knight

I was young and full of life
Had no cares, had to roam
You were my easy goin' wife
And the highway was our home.

Music playin' on the radio
The nights were long, the beer was cold
It was summertime and we were twenty-nine
It was summertime and we were in our prime.

CHORUS
The night is on our side
So Honey let's go for a ride
We'll put the top down tonight
And put it in overdrive


In your eyes a burning fire
Like summer sun on gleamin' chrome
All you'll see is our tail lights
And we're gone.

Andh I will drive this steel horse down
Piston poundin', engine screamin',
Smoke and rubber on the ground

All you'll see is a steak of light as we pass
Blink and miss it 'cuz we're goin' way too fast

CHORUS

And when you like this
Nothin' can compare
Music on the radio
Wind blowin' through your hair
Said, "Honey, put the hammer down!"
Cus there's no one else in sight
*Passed a cop up on the hill
And blew the doors off her
Like she was standing still*

And we put it in Overdrive
