about

Co-written with Dan Rivers.

lyrics

Dog days and damn I'm ready
Fire up my rusty Chevy
I know where I need to be

Just a ragtag riverbank but
Layin' back with the music cranked up
Sure feels like Waikiki to me

Don't need no reservations no black tie invitation
It's a good time right time anytime guaranteed

Call up CMT they got to see my private island
Redneck VIPs in cut off jeans my private island
Woah ohh where the sweet sunshine don't cost a dime no
Woah ohh it's a state of mind my private island

It's a place out past the asphalt
No pilots planes or passports
TSA won't slow us down

Little sand and a whole lotta' dirt
A little Tim McGraw can't hurt
Poppin' PBRs and losin' count

Ain't got but a couple dollars don't think much 'bout tomorrow
Suns out guns out right here and now

Call up CMT they got to see my private island
Redneck VIPs in cutoff jeans my private island
Woah ohh where the sweet sunshine don't cost a dime no
Woah ohh it's a state of mind my private island

The map don't show it but we know where to go
A piece of paradise at the end of a gravel road
