Montgomery Gentry - Headlights Lyrics

Everybody knows when the summer gets hotter
Everybody goin' on down by the water, chillin'
Nothin' gets rocking 'til the clocks says midnight
Catch a buzz on honeysuckle moonlight

Shotguns, girlfriends, coolers full of cold cans

Follow those headlights
Down a broken fence line
Take it to the riverside
Point 'em through the red dust
Keep it in the tire ruts
If you wanna find us
Wanna go all night, hell yeah that's right
Follow those headlights

Got a girl in a tee and cut-offs shakin'
'Round here we call that summertime naked
Yeah, shake it
Got bottoms up boys, hats on backwards
Hittin' it hard, since they parked them tractors
(since they parked them tractors)

Got Hank up on 10, if you can't hear him
If you can't hear him

Follow those headlights
Down a broken fence line
Take it to the riverside
Point 'em through the red dust
Keep it in the tire ruts
If you wanna find us
Wanna go all night, hell yeah that's right
Follow those headlights

Follow those headlights, yeah

Follow those headlights
Down a broken fence line
Take it to the riverside
Point 'em through the red dust
Keep it in the tire ruts
If you wanna find us
Wanna go all night, hell yeah that's right
Follow those headlights
Follow those headlights

  26. Thomas Fletcher

    Cummins headlights

  27. TNA WWE

    Why this song never made it big amazes me. When i first heard it last year, i thought it would be a #1 single

    Levi Moore

    I thought it would too


    I just found this song today. I never heard it on the radio. This is easily a #1 single. Hopefully they'll re-release it.


    TNA WWE because it’s teenage crap music. Sorry to hurt your butt but they sold out.


    I like Montgomery Gentry but this song is a clear Jason Aldean rip-off. Prob why it never went big.

  28. Camaro464

    Hell ya. Love these guys. Super talented and badass!!

  29. Jared Cobb

    Heard this song on the radio ONE time, what happened to it!? It's awesome!

  30. CountryGirl Lve

    Can't wait for yall to come here to Florida next weekend!! 💜🙊😱

  31. Cassidy parker


  32. MrPhilbillydeluxe

    is it just me or did country artists all run out of things to sing about? it all sounds the same today, I miss the old stuff from 10 years and older where they were all pretty original.

    Jade Elderkin

    It's like that with most music/artists? It not just country.

    Dana Butler

    It's not the artists for the most part... It's what the record label wants you to put out. It's about what's in today not musical expression; unless you're an indie artist. Even then I'm finding a lot are trying to be current when it comes to country at least.

  33. Fred Prudoehl

    love this song. Its a great sound

  34. tullyman82

    I followed the headlights, round the broken fence line now I'm stuck....WTF???

    Mizuki Shiba

  36. XGamingNerdX

    Luke Baron

    Same here except I got hooked by a tow truck


    What r u talking about? lol

    Fred Prudoehl

    Same here

  37. twag0735

    i think thats a sign... i was thinking about trading my 68 f100 for a 98 dodge ram 3500 cummins. well there it is in the video like a sign. if shes good ill be rolling a new set of wheels by the end of this week.

    Vlad Lavrov

    Oh, noo.. a '68 f100?
    That's like the coolest pickup ever made... No, it's been my dream truck ever since I was little and saw one, don't trade it out. Save up money and buy the dodge but don't get rid of the ford!!!


    i decided to keep it. but since it had a motor swap in the late 70's to the 400 (aka anchor) shell be getting a motor swap when i get the funds..... shes getting a 615 ford (bored and stroked 460.) :D

    Vlad Lavrov

    @twag0735 Glad to hear it! Any plans for the frame? Not sure how that f100 frame will do against a bored out big block. What are you gonna use for a tranny? Good luck with your project! :) 


    ill box and reinforce the frame wherever i can. but tranny wise id probably do the tremec t-56 magnum, pretty much the same tranny in the viper and corvette just built up much stronger


    and thanks! itll sure be a pretty penny till its done

  38. Tracy Broyles

    I love this song...keep them coming. ..

  39. Jennifer Gordon
