Alan Jackson – Blacktop lyrics

This ain’t no song about the good old days

‘Cept for times and the easy ways

Or how I long for an old dirt road

Greener grass or a lighter load

I was glad to see the blacktop

When they laid it down in sixty-five

Yeah, I was glad to see the blacktop

No more dust in my eyes

Rain would fall and the mud would rise

Through my toes in the summer time

August heat would dry that clay

Dust went flying like a dandelion

I was glad to see the blacktop

When they laid it down in sixty-five

Yeah, I was glad to see the blacktop

No more dust in my eyes

Stubbed my toes on rocks and stones

Slipped and fell in old potholes

Watched my mama shake that line

Dust them clothes off hanging in the hot sunshine

I was glad to see the blacktop

When they laid it down in sixty-five

Yeah, I was glad to see the blacktop

No more dust in my eyes
