fly over states lyrics – jason aldean

“fly over states”

a couple of guys in first cl*ss on a flight
from new york to los angeles,
kinda making small talk killing time,
flirting with the flight attendants,
30, 000 feet above, could be oklahoma,
just a bunch of square cornfields and wheat farms,
man, it all looks the same,
miles and miles of back roads and highways,
connecting little towns with funny names,
who’d want to live down there in the middle of nowhere,

they’ve never drove through indiana,
met the men who plowed that earth,
planted that seed, busted his *ss for you and me,
or caught a harvest moon in kansas,
they’d understand why god made those fly over states,

i bet that mile long santa fe freight train engineer’s seen it all
just like that flatbed cowboy stacking us steel on a 3-day haul
road and rails under their feet
yeah that sounds like a first cl*ss seat

on the plains of oklahoma
with a windshield sunset in your eyes
like a watercolored painted sky

you’ll think heaven’s doors have opened
you’ll understand why god made
those fly over states

take a ride across the badlands
feel that freedom on your face
breathe in all that open sp*ce
meet a girl from amarillo
you’ll understand why god made
you might even want to plant your stakes
in those fly over states

have you ever been through indiana
on the plains of oklahoma
take a ride
