Aldean, Jason - Fly Over States Lyrics

A couple of guys in first class on a flight
From New York to Los Angeles
Kinda making small talk killin' time
Flirting with the flight attendants
Thirty thousand feet above, could be Oklahoma

Just a bunch of square cornfields and wheat farms
Man, it all looks the same
Miles and miles of back roads and highways
Connecting little towns with funny names
Who'd want to live down there in the middle of nowhere?

They've never drove through Indiana
Met the man who plowed that earth
Planted that seed, busted his ass for you and me
Or caught a harvest moon in Kansas
They'd understand why God made
Those fly over states

I bet that mile long Santa Fe
Freight train engineer's seen it all
Just like that flatbed cowboy
Stacking US Steel on a three day haul
Roads and rails under their feet
Yeah, that sounds like a first class seat

On the plains of Oklahoma
With a windshield sunset in your eyes
Like a water colored painted sky
You'll think heaven's doors have opened
You'll understand why God made
Those fly over states

Take a ride across the badlands
Feel that freedom on your face
Breathe in all that open space
Meet a girl from Amarillo
You'll understand why God made
You might even wanna plant your stakes
In those fly over states

Have you ever been through Indiana
On the plains of Oklahoma
Take a ride

Aldean, Jason Fly Over States Comments
  1. Rebecca Rose

    Love this song it mentioned my beautiful Indiana one of my favorites

  2. Leland Hopkins

    I'm a truck driver, and I've delivered John Deer Tractors/Mowers to fly over states....Never knew just much farm land and back roads to small towns there was.... Now I Know.....It was a privilege.........Leland.

  3. Thomas Morgan

    I hear Jason's a prick face to face.

  4. Lisa Sweeney

    Drove through em a time or two , Kansas sucks but when you hit Indiana it starts looking like home <3

  5. Adrian Miller

    Aldean was good with stuff like this, before he sold out....

  6. Tiffiny Tolman

    Makes me think of the great times with the live of my life

  7. Minnesota Northland

    I heard Trump golf's a lot. Haven't heard Rush talking about that or the deficit since Trump was elected. Just imagine if the president before Trump that got elected twice ever asked China, Ukraine, or Russia for help against a political opponent. I guess it's all good for the Republicans they got God on their side they say.


    Just an Indian guy, dreaming of the day, when i am cruising on my chevy truck, baseball cap on the dash, dogtags hanging from the glass, drifting through these flyover states.....🇺🇸 greatest country on earth !!!! Lots of love from the other side of the world ❤️ God Bless ‘Murica !

  9. William Horton

    Major patriotic pandering from crisis actor Aldean.

  24. zach bussie

    I was born and raised in Indiana.
    The year was 2012. I had downloaded a bunch of new music I never heard to my memory on my phone. I was on an airplane to an FFA national contest in California. This song came on and I listened to it on repeat over and over again never hearing it before I set foot on that delta flight. That was the life
    By the way my team won that national contest.

  25. Matt Martin

    Born & Raised in Indianapolis back in 86!

  33. Mike Stephens

    I live in the great State of Kansas!

  34. Brian Jones

    This song makes me well up with pride every time he mentions Indiana. It's a great song regardless especially for those of us from the flyover states.

  35. James Craver

    Makes you love your state more and country as a whole.Yeah there are political issues in most states but that's not the point in this country especially when you visit a state.I work in a factory in Tennessee and I actually felt this song!

  43. Kim Davis


  44. Kat Komfort

    This song should be our second national anthem. Anyone who loves this country and it's values will understand.

  45. Trenton DeBacker

    Im about to take my first ever flight from Denver to Dallas, I'm definitely playing this song.

  46. Lisa Sweeney

    I 70 wb , lol def fly over states

  47. Brendan Manning

    Remember to vote Republican!!

  48. John Spurlock

    Most people think this is country but it's actually southern. Rock. It is a remake of some of the southern rock big. Hits the music is extremely similar to at least three other songs that came out in the sixties by southern rock

    Duncan Berry

    Who needs a music snob anyway. We don't

  49. Corey Sanchez

    Sounds just like north florida

  50. Michael Allison Jr

    I seen a harvest moon in Kansas where im from It's beautiful

  51. Josh Scheeter Parkers

    Idk why people hate the city so much. Yes, there are a lot of strange liberals but it’s not like they bother you all the time. I’ve moved to at least 5 different states and the mid west I hated the most. No diversity and they hate new things, strictness and some racisms. I couldn’t even wear shorts at my senior high school when I moved to IN when I was a senior. I mean CA has beautiful mountains, nature parks, and oceans and cliffs. Like cmon what the hell does Tulsa have flat lands and bueno taco?

  52. Michael Dugan

    #MAGA Fly Over States

  53. Blake O'Kelley

    I have to say that I dont care for Jason Aldean, like at all, to me he represents whats wrong with modern country, but this song and Amarillo Sky will go on to be classics from their time. He has my respect for the that, real recognize real.

  54. Revelation 19-16

    Jesus is the Savior of mankind.

  55. James Craver

    what's wrong with living in small town in Indiana. I live and love my state of Indiana

  56. Barry Elkins

  57. Allen Trey

    #saltytamponvampires you are gross.

  58. Allen Trey

    Keep flying over... we good.🦈🦈🦈🏁 You made your choice.,.,we don't want you here..

  59. Vanessa Lynn

    This is why I love road trips across the US. My granny and grandpa live out in the country and I love driving the 3 hours to visit them and being with them out there. My husband always wants to fly, but I always want to drive anytime we need to travel.

  60. Danny Gunawan

    Not American but I really love these kinds of music

  61. Nate Borgo

    Everytime I visit home, I play this song while I travel the back roads surrounded by cornfields. It never gets old remembering where you came from.

  62. Lamp Unto My Feet

  68. Dakota Showalter

    Who lives in KS

  69. Karl Brundage

    Just found this song......

    I hope the coastal elites see it and wake up to the fact that a significant portion of the population don't live like them or have the same mindset.

    I live in one of the areas mentioned in the song and just want to be left alone. My neighbors, as well.

    Don't push us.................................
