What I Need to Do Lyrics by Kenny Chesney


Kenny Chesney Lyrics

What I Need to Do Lyrics
I keep tellin myself this is the right thing to do
I was wastin her time, waitin on dreams that just werent comin true
And this old highway seems to understand
Leadin me on to somewhere that no one knows my name
I got the window rolled down, I got the radio up
Im doin all that I can to get my mind off us

What I need to do is turn this car around
Drive as fast as I can til I see the lights of our hometown
And run to her, take her in my arms
Make her see how sorry I am, well that shouldnt be so hard
But I drive on, and on, and on

Eighty-seven more miles gets me into baton rogue
Theres a buddy of mine who says he might find some work that I can do
Or maybe head up north to knoxville, tennessee
I know my baby sister, has got a couch where I can sleep
Now the suns goin down on my broken heart
Lord, I gotta get bak before I go too far

What I need to do is turn this car around
Drive as fast as I can til I see the lights of our hometown
And run to her, take her in my arms
Make her see how sorry I am, well that shouldnt be so hard
But I drive on, and on, and on


But I drive on
Yes I drive on, and on, and on

Knowin what I need to do
Girl, Im comin home to you

Knowin what I need to do
Girl Im comin home to you
Im comin home to you
Knowin what I need to do....
