Shires, The - State Lines Lyrics

You always take me by surprise, like when it rains in California.
Yeah, you do.
You got a crazy sense of humour, dry as the sands in Arizona.
You know you do.

But I love everything about you,
Yeah I love all the little things.

Like when you roll your eyes like a cool new Yorker
Driving across the Mason Dixon line,
I've gotta smile.
Cause you're warm like a night in a southern summer,
Sweet like a taste of California wine.
I love crossing your state lines, state lines.
State lines.

You can cry like the Mississippi, when we're just watching a movie.
It's kinda cute.
You sweep me away like a hurricane, over Louisiana
And I let you, yeah.

Cause I love everything about you,
Yeah I love all the little things.

Like when you roll your eyes like a cool new Yorker
Driving across the Mason Dixon line,
I've gotta smile.
Cause you're warm like a night in a southern summer,
Sweet like a taste of California wine.
I love crossing your state lines, state lines.

And I'm learning everyday, a little bit more and more with every state
All the little things.

Like when you roll your eyes like a cool new Yorker
Driving across the Mason Dixon line,
I've gotta smile.
Cause you're warm like a night in a southern summer,
Sweet like a taste of California wine.
I love crossing your state lines, state lines.
Your state lines.
State lines.

    Very talented , and do make very beautiful music together, and would make a beautiful couple. Omg, your voices sound so great together.
    Lots of love , from the other side of the world. 😘

  2. Daph

    2019 still listening to it 🤩♥️

  3. Ali H. Moksin

    Underrated country song. Deserve more views

  4. James Douglas

    These two are up there with anyone coming out of Nashville - each superb vocalists in their own right, and together, they are harmony heaven. Most impressive and - more importantly - highly listenable. Style and substance...enough said.

  7. Glenda Paul

    beautiful song :)

  8. Ilse Dekker

    I came across this song one year ago, forgot the name, spend all the time looking for it and I finally found it back 🤤! Also, I became a fan of The Shires in between the searching for the song 2 months ago.

  9. Loisespana

    Love your voices, perfect harmonies. Putting light in my life! Thank you guys xx

  10. dean olley

    Two Brits singing the praises of the USA. Magic they are so good.

  11. Gilbert Santiago

    Two Beautiful voices that blend together so well.

  12. Kat TheFanEnthusiast

    I honestly think it’s kinda sad how a British duo like them decided to jump on the America bandwagon and write one of those America songs. They could’ve been writing a song about their own country! I mean, c’mon, you can be a great country star without trying to be American!

    Anastasia Jane

    Kat TheFanEnthusiast yes that’s true ❤️💗

  13. Summer Smith hollon

  18. stratpac

    Wow! great song beautifully sung. I love these talented duo.

  19. Víctor Montero

    This is pop country, if you like. Near near a usual pop song adding words and storytelling formula to be close to country, but still lack of something, don't know what it is, probably adding something to the sweet soft voices or the usual pop-song sound. Still, great song!

  32. Anthony Vaughan

  33. Slashley gibbins

  34. Transport UK

    Yay Some English Country Music!

  35. Steve Smith


  36. Kevin Gray

    given their background, might have been more appropriate to sing about Luton Airport and Welwyn Garden City.

  37. Mick lawson

    If this is country music ill eat hay with a donkey....pop garbage

    Peter Wood-Jenkins

    There is a lot of country garbage coming from Nashville these two from the U K are very re freshing with top harmonies have your ears cleaned out kiddo

  38. PabloDiver

    Each to their own, this bored me to tears.

    Alan Collins

    Didn't have to watch it fella!

    Peter Wood-Jenkins

    Well that says a lot about your personality what was you expecting an up tempo Ozzy Osborne


    Peter Wood-Jenkins Nothing to do with the tempo, it's just such generic, bland soft country. There's nothing different or interesting here. It says a lot about your personality that you resort to personal remarks about differing opinions.

  39. MissAmyj123

    just heard the live version on radio 2. amazing sound ❤

  40. JOP

    It's unbelievable just how many country music venues there are in the UK and yet we haven't adopted it mainstream. We need to embrace this type of music fully and not be ashamed of it. It's best type of music there is.

    Antony Evans

    JOP agreed. Worked a good few years as a sessions guitarist in the UK (I'm from wales), only ONCE worked on a country album. Can't even remember the name, it was such a 'small' job

    explore with ace

    Could not agree more, im just a simple girl who lives in the country in north wales, so many people pull a funny face when I say how good country music is, it's like I'm an alien, but I don't care, will always be the best music genre In my eyes,

  41. David Holden

    As a musician in my opinion these guys are great so versatile this is my favourite album of 2015 so fresh and original

  45. d2ditmars

  62. Keystone Tuscanred

    Move over "Sugarland". This song has the flavor of country music all over it. Cue Does to the Shires. Indeed, a sound that could match up well with Lady Antebellum.

  92. Chris E

    Piggy whore females on MAN made birth control tablets.

  97. Chris E

    Female looks like a piggy whore.

  98. Chris E

    The mason dickson line
    the mexson texson line

    wtf     Mexson

  99. whistlingbob1

    heard this song and instantly in my own mind i went to sing Lady antebellum " need you now" i genuinely thought it was the same artist or someone very similar, i spent the next few minutes mashing up the two songs in my head, very acoustically similar

  100. hyperfunkd

    How does this only have 105k views (at the time of writing)?!?!? I am fortunate enough to work in the music 'biz' and can say with confidence that this is one of the best songs that I have heard in the last few years. It has everything: great melody, great lyrics and fantastic combined harmony.

    Susan Mowbray

    soooo agree

    Maureen Corbett

    hyperfunkd they are amazing ... saw them st bham 02 in oct👌
