Let’s go get the Girls

We drove down from Houston to Galveston one night and drank tallboys with our feet in the Gulf. We probably tried to pick up some girls...this one is for Shafer Hall.

Listen: studio version, solo acoustic version , live version


Let’s go get the girls, boys Let’s go get the girls You know the beach is about to close, boys So let’s go get the girls You know they told us they needed a ride back to Houston

Well the dark clouds are forming and the white caps are rolling in Let’s go get the girls The life guard’s stereo has dead batteries Let’s go get the girls Because no one wants to be caught in the rain

Let’s go get the girls, boys Let’s go get the girls You know the beach is about to close, boys So let’s go get the girls They told us they needed a ride back to Houston

Well the last time we saw them they were on the sand They were getting some food from the refreshment stand They got some French fries with ketchup it was all over their fingers They were licking it off and tasting all the sand I was only in there for a real quick dip They couldn’t have given us the slip

Let’s go get the girls, boys Let’s go get the girls You know the beach is about to close, boys So let’s go get the girls They told us they needed a ride back to Houston

Knee deep in the Gulf of Mexico say yeah Knee deep in the Gulf of Mexico say hell yeah

Well how they getting home they’re so young It’s a long drive from Galveston

Well how they getting home they’re so young It’s a long drive from Galveston

Let’s go get the girls, boys Let’s go get the girls You know the beach is about to close, boys So let’s go get the girls

They told us they needed a ride back to Houston
