Trucker’s Hat and a Farmer’s Tan

All she was lookin’ for and wanted in a man, was
one who had a trucker’s hat and a farmer’s tan
It must have been my lucky afternoon,
I had both when I walked into the barroom

I sat next to her and ordered myself a shot
Our eyes met and she said “Hey, you’re hot.”
I said, “Why, thank you, I’m new ‘round here”
And I thought I’d ask her if she wanted a beer

She said sure, she’d love a cold Miller Light
They we talked and talked through the night
She told me about her career as a Nurse
And she pulled out her phone from her purse

To show me pictures of her 8-year-old son
And I thought, “Hey, she could be the one.”
She wanted to know what I liked to do
I shared those things as we drank our brew

I asked if she would want to dance with me
As the band started a slow one, she agreed
When she put her arms around my neck
It felt like I just survived a major wreck

Our bodies intertwined, I felt so alive
Her kisses tasted like honey from a hive
And to think all she was lookin’ for in a man, was
one who had a trucker’s hat and a farmer’s tan

To think all she was lookin’ for in a man, was
One who had a trucker’s hat and a farmer’s tan
