Sixteen

Thomas Rhett

“Take a left here, boy, take it slow

Don’t get distracted by that radio”

I just rolled my eyes and I said, “Daddy, I know

I’m fifteen, I ain’t green like some ol’ ten year old”

What I wouldn’t give to be sixteen, wild and free

Cruisin’ up and down Main in my F-150

Roll the windows down, bass too loud from this burnt CD

I’ll be right where I wanna be when I’m sixteen, sixteen, yeah

Sixteen

Now that I can drive, finally feel alive, but I got this curfew

Sneakin’ in late, smelling like my girlfriend’s perfume

People talkin’ ’bout college and knowledge and that’s alright

But all I’m thinkin’ ’bout is an unsupervised Saturday night

What I wouldn’t give to be eighteen, wild and free

Buzzin’ off a can of that Grizzly wintergreen

Lookin’ old enough to pull off this fake ID

I’ll be right where I wanna be when I’m eighteen, eighteen

Eighteen, yeah

I’m old enough to smoke, I’m old enough to vote

But they turn me away when I go to the Cotton-Eyed Joe

They say the grass is always greener, and I believe that’s right

But my friends are off to Vegas, and they’re leavin’ me behind

What I wouldn’t give to be twenty one, wild and free

Open up a cold one and drink it legally

Chase a bunch of girls, go see the world, let my wild streak run

I’ll be right where I wanna be when I’m twenty one, twenty one

Woah, when I’m twenty one

Yeah, when I’m twenty one, it’ll be alright

Yeah, it’ll all be alright when I’m twenty one

Now I’m twenty five, and I’m drinkin’ wine with my wife at home

Got a couple dogs and a couple songs on the radio

And we sit around, and we laugh about how we used to be

When all we cared about was turning sixteen

Background

Thomas Rhett’s “Sixteen” is a reminiscent nod to his youth, but this track won’t leave you weeping for your glory days. The singer pays homage to his adolescence by citing milestones and giving those moments credit for helping to craft the wonderful life that he now shares with Lauren Akins and his two daughters.
