Kenny Chesney - Down the Road Lyrics and video




Down the Road by Kenny Chesney and Mac McAnally, Music Video and Lyrics

Kenny Chesney covered the Mac McAnally’s 1990 single, “Down the Road“, on his album Lucky Old Sun.
Chesney’s version features guest vocals from McAnally, who sings the second verse and chorus. Unlike McAnally’s original which is accompanied by electric guitar, Chesney’s rendition is more acoustic in nature, backed largely by a steel-string acoustic guitar and congas.

Kenny Chesney - Down the Road Lyrics

When I was a boy

Four houses down from me
Was a family with an only child
She was the only girl
In this whole world that could make me smile

Down the road
I made up reasons to go
Down the road

Somewhere inside of me
There was something she took a liking to
And I asked her to marry me
She said she really wanted to

Down the road
To see what life’s gonna hold
Down the road

Her momma wants to know
If I washed in the blood or just in the water
Her daddy wants to know
If I make enough to take his daughter

Down the road
Before he can let her go
Down the road

Now down the street from here
There’s an engineer with an only son
And our baby girl says
She believes that he is the only one
