I think I'm gonna take me a ride
Don't want nobody, no, not this time
Find me a place I can park my truck
Hop on the hood, gonna light one up
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

I'll check the sights on my .22
Take a couple pot shots at the moon
Now that you're gone there's nothing to lose
I'll think it's time I forget about you
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

I'm gonna say goodbye to you tonight
So long old friend
I'm gonna fly again

Pour me a shot of my real good friend
Take me a breath and I'll do it again
Count all my smoke rings in the dark
Ain't gonna worry 'bout where you are
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

Once I've finally caught me a buzz
I won't give a damn and I'll roll one up
Grab my guitar, pick a song or two
One of them songs where I forget about you
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

I'm gonna say goodbye to you tonight
So long old friend
I'm gonna fly again

Girl, it hurts, I ain't gonna lie
But I'll be damned if I'm gonna cry
It's an end long overdue
Forget about love girl, forget about you
Ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh

I'm gonna say goodbye to you tonight
So long old friend
I'm gonna fly again

I'm gonna say goodbye to you tonight
So long old friend
I'm gonna fly again

Song facts

"We were doing a soundcheck for a show in Pennsylvania and Dave started playing the guitar lick for the song. I started free-styling, spitting out some words on top of it. I spit out that first verse, 'I think I'm gonna take me a ride.' I had to wrap my head around exactly what I was saying. We loved the melody and the guitar riff, and I got my little hand recorder and I recorded it. I sat on the van that whole eight-hour drive back to Nashville and started writing the lyric.

I didn't have the last verse. I was struggling with it. Everything that I wrote felt contrived and that's why I brought Dan Couch in. I said, 'Man, I need help in this last verse,' and he came right in and we sat down for two or three hours and we came up with it.

It's one of my favorite songs on the record. It's actually a sad lyric, but the music is uplifting. It's funny when we play it because people get so rowdy. People get more into that song than any song I have just about that people don't know. (Of course, 'Somethin' 'Bout a Truck' gets the biggest reaction.) People get so wild. I think this song strikes such a chord with people because when a relationship goes wrong and you really cared about somebody, it's such a hard thing to get past. Sometimes those really sad songs are good and people need to hear them, but sometimes you need to hear that other thing that's like, 'I'm going to get through this.' That is what this song is. It's a really sad lyric with a happy melody.

I feel like in a break-up there are three stages: the first stage is you are really sad. The next stage is you are really angry and the third stage is you don't give a shit anymore. That is what this song is, that third stage of 'I'm gonna get past this whole thing.' I've been in that place and I just tried to draw on how I felt when I was in that place when I was writing that song." - Kip Moore
