C'mon!
I said "Hey girl what's your name?
Haven't I seen you before?
I recognized them dark green eyes when you walked through the door.
Are you alone or are you with someone?"
She said "A matter of fact I'm not", so I took her hand,
That's when it all began and we headed towards the parking lot.

And she said "Hey boy, do you mind takin' me home tonight?
Cause I ain't ever seen a country boy with tires on his truck this high"
I said "Climb on up but honey watch the cup that I'm spittin' my dip inside.
And hold on tight cause it's gonna be wilder than any 8 second ride!"

We went riding round rocking to the sound of "A Country Boy Can Survive."
And I knew then she was my kind of girl cause she was singing every single line
Then she slid on over put my hand on her shoulder
And I asked her what she wanted to do.
She said "It really don't matter where we go just as long as I ride with you."

And she said "Hey boy, do you mind takin' me home tonight?
Cause I ain't ever seen a country boy with tires on his truck this high."
I said "Climb on up but honey watch the cup that I'm spittin' my dip inside.
And hold on tight cause it's gonna be wilder than any 8 second ride!"

So we headed out to old Tobacco Road
Put the tailgate down, we made love
She said "True country boys are hard to find,
But I found one wilder than any 8 second ride."

And she said "Hey boy, do you mind takin' me home tonight?
'Cause I ain't never seen a country boy with tires on his truck this high."
I said "Climb on up but watch the cup that I'm spittin' my dip inside.
And hold on tight cause it's gonna be wilder than any 8 second ride!
Yeah hold on tight cause it's gonna be wilder than any 8 second ride!"

Song facts

"Eight Second Ride" is the title of a song recorded by American country music singer Jake Owen, written by him and Eric Durrance. It is the fifth single of Owen's career, and the second single from his 2009 album Easy Does It. Owen had previously recorded the song on his 2006 debut album Startin' with Me.

The title is a reference to the eight-second time limit in bull riding, which is used as a metaphor for sex.
