It's Friday night down in Germantown
You're ridin' shotgun wearin' black
Just another Friday night in Germantown
But something tells me we ain't goin' back

Mary's glowin' by the dashboard light
Giving benediction to the lost
Something's stirring in the black, black night
I guess, every blessing has its cost

Do you remember graduation day?
I burned like fire beneath your kiss
Said, you could see us somewhere far away
Oh, but baby, not like this

I heard a siren and a shot ring out
But my mind would not believe
My plates expired and my taillight's out
And you've got something up your sleeve

I'm doin' ninety toward the county line
And the rain is comin' down
Said, you were onto something big this time
But it's the other way around

It's Friday night down in Germantown
The blood is pounding in my veins
Just another rainy night in Germantown
Why does it always have to rain?
