Lyrics:

Bobby has been planning on taking her out for a week, but it feels twenty times longer
When you want her that bad
Sarah smiled cause she knew she was harder to get / held his hand after school she was making them stronger / and he was fine with that

He held her tight in the parking lot / pulling her close / She just smiled and said "when are you picking me up" / he said "Baby, just as soon as you're ready to go" / and you'll know

Listen for my truck / coming down the road / with "Calling Baton Rouge" playing on the radio You can hear it play / a mile away / and every second counts so meet me in the drive way / I got a pack of smokes and bottle of wine / we're meeting Zach and Jamie on the levee by the riverside/ and I promised your mom and daddy that I'd have you home by nine / you can jump right in and we can just roll on by / So Listen for my truck

There they were / kids laying under the stars / holding hands and talking sweet about college and money / it all sounded so good / then Bobby says "Baby, I'm gonna buy you a ring" / Sarah laughed said " Boy, you must be crazy, but I hope you will"

She kissed his lips on the riverside / touching his face then said "baby, how will I know that you meant what you said" / He said "Darlin, the same way that you knew today" / Oh Baby

Listen for my truck coming down the road / with "Calling Baton Rouge" blaring on the radio
You can hear it play / a mile away / and every second counts so meet me in the driveway
I'll save up some money out here working the land / and put a pretty diamond right here on your left hand / and I promise to ask your daddy before we head out of this town / we won't have to think once about ever turning around / so listen for my truck

After Graduation, Bobby worked it all out / had the money and ring for her hand / he rolled on by and she was waiting in the drive / just like they had planned

She could hear his truck / coming down the road / with "Calling Baton Rouge" blaring on the radio/ she could hear it play / a mile away / they didn't waste a second getting out on that highway / They loaded up and headed on out / they didn't think once about turning around / and they took that truck and drove right into the sun / sometimes happy endings happen to turn out fun / She listened for his truck.
