Lyrics

Hey!
Hello baby, Conway here
Let me lay this in your ear
Get ready to go
We gonna roll about sundown
I got some boogie woogie music
On the old 8-track
Yeah, I got the top laid back
We’ll go cruisin’
We’ll go foolin’ around
Well here I am baby, ready to play
Slide it on in, we’ll slip away
We gotta get it, we ain’t got a minute to waste
I got a 6-pack of longnecks
In the trunk on ice
Oohh – but, you sure look nice
Makes me want to hug you
And kiss you all over your face
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
You ain’t had much till you
Been touched in the moonlight
You feel it most when you get
Real close and you hold on tight
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
— Instrumental —
Stars in your eyes, wind in your hair
Oh, what a down home love affair
When we go out walkin’
We know what we’re talkin’ about
Listen to the wipperwills
How they sing
Just like us, they doin’ their thin’
We know what we got
When the night gets hot down south
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
You ain’t had much till you
Been touched in the moonlight
You feel it most when you get
Real close and you hold on tight
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
You ain’t had much till you
Been touched in the moonlight
You feel it most when you get
Real close and you hold on tight
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
— Instrumental —
laugh… HEY!
eat your heart out children
laugh …you know I love you
(red neckin’, love makin’ night)
now don’t wreck-in my phone son
let him in there
hey, hey, hey
(hold on tight)
(ah yes)
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
You ain’t had much till you
Been touched in the moonlight
You feel it most when you get
Real close and you hold on tight
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night
It’s a red-neckin’, love-makin’ night..
