Lyrics

Out back where the cherry trees grow
That’s where I used to go
With my friends and Mary Jane

Telling old jokes and skipping rocks
Drinking beer at the end of the docks
Man them good times they kept me sane

When the sun set then we’d build a fire
Tell ghost stories until we were tired
Then she and I’d go home hand in hand

Out there where the water is blue
We’d find a ton to do
And we had fun I can tell you Man

Now it’s all a part of my past
a memory that forever lasts
Just kicking it back down at the lake

Where the dirt road ends

Years later I’ve got a 9 to 5
with Honey-Do’s and a truck to drive
A 2 car garage and kids in school

Mary and I became Man and Wife
and settled on the quite life
But when we’re looking for something to do

She’ll jump in close on the seat of my truck
And we’ll beat the traffic if we’ve got any luck
A 2 hour drive and then we’re there

Out there where the water is blue
We find a ton to do
And we have fun I can tell you Man

Skinny dipping in the moonlight
and making love until the early light
Down at the lake where the dirt road ends

Solo break

Out there where the water is blue
We find a ton to do
And we have fun I can tell you Man

Clean air and the love of my wife
I tell ya Man thats a Hell of a life
dipping our feet down at the lake

Where the dirt road ends
Where the dirt road ends
Where the dirt road ends

Digging our toes in the beach sand
Watching her laugh while I do a headstand

Where the dirt road ends
Where the dirt road ends
