McCollum, Parker - Meet You In The Middle Lyrics

Hear that whistle wind and holler
Waking you up in the night
All the way from California
Casanova has arrived
Headlined on the morning paper
You read it by the road
Waving goodbye to your neighbor
Where the hell you supposed to go?

Guess I'll meet you in the middle
Ain't nobody told me it'd be this hard
Guess I'll meet you in the middle
Lord only knows if I'll make it that far

Well, you told me that you loved me
Then you headed way out west
Chasing dreams that you've been dreaming
Loving boys you've never met
I'm still stuck here in the city
So much left I have to learn
Grandpa's shaking off his cancer
Just in case you hadn't heard

Guess I'll meet you in the middle
Well, ain't nobody told me it'd be this hard
Guess I'll meet you in the middle
Lord only knows if I'll make it that far

Well, I can hear the whole town whisper
Barely making out your name
Said you got some fancy hairdo
My momma's gone insane
Daddy left no goodbye letter
With no pistol on his grave
In the backyard on the blacktop
Where he left them good old days

Guess I'll meet you in the middle
Well, ain't nobody told me it'd be this hard
Guess I'll meet you in the middle
Lord only knows if I'll make it that far
If I'll make it that far

    This Colorado girl just became a fan of yours today what an Amazing Voice!!!! Now this is country!!!!


    damn good song! just dont know about the antler placement, that would suck some serious cock if you ever were rear ended

  18. Ben Annis

    You sing and write lyrics way ahead of your age. Love your music!

  19. Jarrett Goodman

    Everyone complaing about the antlers on the gun rack lol. Does anyone realize that is a 50 year old pickup. Thats right a 1970 Ford. And i bet you didnt realize that those were made from something called iron. Yes thats right that hard grey stuff that you can paint pretty colors. And i bet you didnt know that if in any sort of collision the hood is the only thing than can crumple on that vehicle. Ford thought that through and made the first three feet of the frame this way to save the driver of thier vehicle. True story go watch a crash test or two on those old gas gu-zling workhorses. They didnt make mall crawlers that crumple like a fruit roll-up wrapper. They made iron boxes and 6 and eight cylinder earth movers back then. And proof that i know this i own one that i should have totalled. Put it on its side over an embankment. I pulled it out of the place it was and drove away. Those are probably the safest vehicles on earth

  20. yolol

    2019 bitches!

  21. Kendra Bowers

    Can someone tell me who he is singing to? I'm just so confused. "All the way from California, Casanova has arrived." Casanova is a guy, right? He says *from* California, but then whoever he is singing to "headed way out west." Is he talking about two different people? I have to figure this out.

    Texas Anarchists

    Kendra Bowers He is going east, he is Casanova, The girl is going west, they are meeting in the middle

  49. Sam Gibbins

    Song of the year

  50. Dax Frost

    I love this song. Awesome man. But the antlers behind the drivers head, that's a rear-end away from an infamous death. I'm sure it's just for the video, but let's go ahead and avoid that one next time. Impossible not to be distracted by it.

    That being said, great video, you're a damn solid artist, and I'm stoked to hear more of your stuff.

  51. Austin Little

    Me and my dad listen to this song all the time

  53. Parker Family Group LLC

    Who are the 8 idiots who gave this song a thumbs down. Maybe one of the best country songs in 20 years. This kid is for real.

    John Daniels

    Probably luke Bryan fans 🤙

    Ian Kz

    Most "country" fans don't like real country.

    jade McIntire

  54. Everton Ortims Martins

    Raini Garcia

    Everton Ortims Martins That is incredible, to know that Texas country lives in Brazil as well. The day my travels lead me to Brazil it will be nice to know that I may come across someone who share in my roots. Love from Texas.

  55. Michelle Thompson

    Am I the only one who notices the deer horns waiting to impel the back of his head on impact?

    James Bolognani
