Anderson, Keith - Podunk Lyrics

Same Saturday night, same ol' crowd
Draggin' Main to the Safeway then turn back around
'Til curfew and then head down to the river's edge and get drunk
Ain't nothing new what else you gonna do out in Podunk

Well I knew this six-string was my ticket out
No flashin' red light was gonna slow me down
18 years old everything that I owned in the back of that truck
I put a dip in my mouth and I headed straight out outta Podunk

[1st Chorus:]
Goodgye, daddy looked me in the eye said go where you gotta go
But don't forget to call home
And momma cried keep Jesus in your life and I hugged her one last time
And then I headed down the roadin a dusty cloud of smoke
Out of Podunk

A lot of years gone by showin' on my face
Nothing in this life that time hasn't changed
I chased a lot of dreams and some of them came true
Ain't it funny how the very place I ran from is the place I'm runnin' to

Another Saturday night singin' to the same ol' crowd
Still playin this six-string but things are different nowI met one
of those girls turn your whole world around girls
And wouldn't you know it
We got our eyes on a house 'bout a hundred miles south
Out in Podunk

[2nd Chorus:]
Goodbye, her daddy looked me in the eye
And said go where you gotta go son but don't forget to call home
And her momma cried sadi keep Jesus in your life and we hugged her one last time
Then we headed down the road to start a family of our own
Out in Podunk

[Repeat 2nd Chorus 2x]

  15. baler johnson

    I recognize Steps ford bridge but the Safeway closed before he was born ...or when he was to young to remember . I know he is from Miami like me I just cant place him. Now I do remember Joe Don Rooney he was a little shit who came to the baseball games that me and his brother played . We had some pretty talented folks from our area including Steve and Cassie Gains from Skynard and Ace Moreland and Mickey Mantle . I guess most everyone else can say the same thing with other famous folks .

    Kari Fields

    Keith graduated Miami High School a year behind me in 1986. Safeway was here when we were probably in grade school.

    Joshua Brooks

    Jim Ross and Jack swagger are from Oklahoma also.

  16. Alison Glovicko

    I missed seeing him in concert!!! I was only little but I still remember him!!

  17. Joshua Brooks

    Everyone has a podunk style town in their past that fills their hearts with fun memories. My podunk town is Onalaska, wa. The school was surrounded by a dairy on three sides, so for the first couple hours of school, we got to smell cow manure as we walked to our classes. Another staple of Onalaska is their Friday night home football, baseball, or basketball games, the support the community has for the teams is awesome. I don't live there anymore, but since the people of Onalaska welcomed me with open arms in 1994, I sing their praises to this very day. Go loggers!

  18. Bridgette Farley

    This video brought back great memories of being raised in Miami,  This was the first time I watched the video and never knew he filmed in Mudville USA. My dad worked at BF Goodrich which killed the economy in Miami when it shut down :(

  48. Stephanie Lewis

    It is different but Good

  49. Illusionary Forces

    What is Podunk?? Well, you'd have to ask Keith himself for the real answer. As for me (the editor), it's what I'd call the Okie state of mind. I grew up in a small town, left for a bigger one. But that small town never really leaves you.


    Joshua Brooks

    You're so right.
